The ASUS Transformer and the newer Transformer Prime are often considered the best Android tablets on the market and the most likely to be able to compete with Apple and its iPad in 2012. Our own review from Matt Smith tells the same kind of story and is definitely worth a read to get some context for this news today.
At CES 2012 ASUS is unveiling a new version of the Transformer Prime with the TF700T suffix that adds a couple of really nice features including a high-resolution 1920x1200 screen and a new 2.0 MP front camera for HD video conferencing. These replace a 1280x800 resolution screen and a 1.3 MP front camera.
The current Transformer Prime that might already be outdated...
Also worth noting is a change to the back plate on the device that ASUS claims "should enhance WiFi, BT and GPS performance." Some users had complaints about WiFi issues and this should address it, if you are willing to pay the higher price for the better hardware as well.
Expect to see this selling for $599 to $699 when it is available this quarter.
