After the informal unveiling last week, Asus has put up a teaser page for the Eee Pad Transformer Prime. While the teaser doesn’t give away the tablet’s specifics, it does talk about the tablet’s main highlight: the Transformer Prime is claimed to be the “world’s first tablet to feature the next-generation quad-core mobile chip.”
Specifically, the chip is NVIDIA’s ARM Cortex A9-based Tegra 3 (a.k.a. the “Kal-el“), a quad core mobile processor that should give it more than enough power to handle multitasking and HD movies smoothly. The rest of the tablet’s spec still remains a mystery, but from what can be seen from the tablet that Asus showed off onstage during last week’s AsiaD conference, the Transformer Prime will also feature a form factor that detaches from a keyboard dock, but will be slimmer than its predecessor. It’s also notable for being one of the first tablets to run on Google’s Android 4.0 OS.
