ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime announced with Tegra 3 quad-core processor

Today both NVIDIA and ASUS have revealed two new products, both of them coming together here in one product: the Eee Pad Transformer Prime, a 10.1-inch display toting Android tablet with NVIDIA's newest prized processor: the quad-core Tegra 3.
