Asus pushes Prime pre-orders

Ask for Ice Cream Sarnie, Tegra 3 tablet now

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Asus has said some 16 UK retailers are now taking advance orders for its Nvidia Tegra 3-based Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet-netbook combo, the Eee Pad Transformer Prime.

The list of sellers includes all the familiar names, including Amazon, Argos, Asda, Comet, Currys, eBuyer, John Lewis, PC World and Tesco.

The price you'll pay, said Asus: £499, which gets you the 32GB Prime and bundles its clip-on keyboard-and-battery accessory. That's a bit cheaper than the £550 Clove was asking for it earlier this week, but then it's just what Asus thinks it should cost - retailers can charge what they like.

The Pad itself is a 10.1in, 1280 x 800 tab with 1GB of DDR 2 memory, 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, an 8Mp camera, micro HDMI and micro SD.

The keyboard unit adds a full size USB 2.0 port and an SD slot.

Asus said it was also promoting the current Eee Pad Transformer, offering the 16GB model for £299, the 16GB tablet-plus-keyboard bundle for £399 and the 32GB Pad for £349. Offer ends 30 December. ®
