Asus Transformer Prime Gets A Video Walk-through, Shows Off Hardware And Software

If you’re not sick and tired of hearing about the most anticipated tablet of the year, then you might want to check out the video demo of the Asus Transformer Prime below.  The Transformer Prime touts Nvidia’s new Tegra 3 chip set and comes packed with a slim as hell keyboard.  Check out the hardware as the review gets close and personal with a detailed walk around on the hardware and a sweat tour of the software.  Note how smooth the home screen is despite the busy live wallpaper going on in the back ground, courtesy of the doings of a quad-core CPU.  According to the gentlemen reviewing the device, this is pre-production software and hardware.  The device is currently running Android 3.2.1 Honeycomb, not ICS.  However, if you want to see the device running ICS, head here.  Again, nothing new with this particular version of Honeycomb but the video will give you a nice run down of the hardware for the ultimate appeasement.  So, until December some time when this monster is unleashed, these videos will just have to suffice.  Feel free to let us know what you think of the device in the comments below.  Enjoy the video.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    What gives?!?!
    Also, has anyone noticed the black border around the visible screen, it’s pretty dam thick.
    When ASUS says 10.1″, is that the visible or the whole screen.  If its the whole screen, then the visible is pretty small after that thick ass border.

      Although it’s a “thick ass border”, the visible screen size is 10.1″ measured diagonally.

      I really don’t like the think border either man , im waiting till a similar tablet is released where the border is reduced  half the size, then id buy one.
