ASUS UK tweeted Amazon UK has gone live – Transformer Prime will finally come to the United Kingdom.
A few hours ago, AsusUK tweeted “Amazon.co.uk have gone live with their Transformer Prime pre-order page”. So, those lucky ones of you who live in the UK will have the chance to pre-order one in time for Christmas, and get the Prime on January 12th, 2012 (sadly, Santa will delay not only in the UK).
The Eee Pad Transformer Prime is the first tablet featuring Tegra 3 (Kal-El) quad-core processor (with a fifth – companion core). Asus did an exceptional tablet, which operates at exceptionally low power, and is also the most powerful one, now days.
Asus uploaded official photos of Transformer Prime vs Zenbook UX21.
Both devices look incredible next to each other and their appearance too. The Prime is a bit thicker, but let’s not forget that it’s a two-in-one device and is not called an Ultrabook. It will be interesting to see how the rumored upcoming Ultrabook of Asus (with its swivel-screen) will look next to the Zenbook. But for now we will have to wait till next year, hopefully at CES in Las Vegas.
