Next-gen Asus Eee Pad Transformer spied
A previously unseen Asus tablet has surfaced on the web prompting speculation that the Taiwanese company is working on the successor to the Eee Pad Transformer Prime.
Not that there's much in the leak that gives any hint one way or the the other. All we have is a snap of a tablet - a ten-incher by the look of it - and the model code TF300T. The Transformer Prime is the TF201.
There's talk on Chinese-language site NCCC that the tablet's back is more GPS-friendly than the one on the Prime, and a second pic shows a rear-facing camera and a headphone socket.
A wireless signalling certificate shows it has Wi-Fi on board, but you'd never have guessed that, would you? ®
This is probably more like a Prime vers. 2.0. A higher quality screen (believe it or not) and polymer back to resolve wi-fi and GPS issue of the original Prime. Same guts though.
At the present pace that Asus is moving at I imagine they'll have the same number of tablets as they have netbooks. I'd love to have one of these but I figure if I wait until the end of the year I'll have a half dozen choices.
Asus are working on a successor.
You'd never have guessed that one
