The Asus Transformer Prime hasn’t even launched in the UK, but Asus has already announced a new version packing a full HD 1080p display and connectivity improvements.
Named the Asus Transformer Prime TF700T, it has a resolution of 1920×1200 (slightly higher than full HD), in comparison to the original Transformer Prime (pic below), which has a resolution of 1280×800. This should be more sharper, more detailed movies and photographs.
The hardware slightly different to the Transformer Prime. Following complaints about the GPS (which Asus admitted too here), the back panel has been redesigned to improve GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth performance.
Elsewhere it retains the same Tegra 3 chip, WiFi and Bluetooth options and will be compatible with the keyboard dock.
This is the second tablet with a full HD we’ve seen at CES, following the Acer Icona A700, which also packs a quad-core processor and Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Asus Transformer Prime TF700T will go on sale in Q2 in North America for $599 (32GB) and $699 (64GB), there’s no news on when it will be available in Europe.
