According to Allie Coyne over at PC & Tech Authority, the exact date for the ASUS Transformer Prime launch is January 18th which is next Wednesday. Although ASUS haven’t yet disclosed where you’ll be able to purchase a Transformer Prime from, they did disclose the price you’ll have to pay for one. Starting with the 32GB model (unsure if Wi-Fi only) you’ll have to pay $799 and for 64GB model you’ll be forking out a whopping $899. These prices include the keyboard docking station as you won’t be able to buy a Transformer Prime on its lonesome for a few month according to ASUS.
The Transformer Prime will be the first Android device (and tablet) to launch here in Australia with Tegra’s new quad-core CPU. Other specs include the 10.1-inch 1280×800 IPS display, 1GB RAM, MicroSD slot, 8MP rear camera and 1.3MP front camera. There will be an update to Android 4.0 available for the device as soon as it’s launched — so don’t worry about this beast not getting the latest version of Android.
We’ll let you know of the exact retailers selling the device once we get the word from ASUS.
