ASUS Transformer Prime TF700T revealed with 1080p display

ASUS' Transformer Prime may only have gone on sale a short time ago, but the company has already prepared a new model, the Transformer Prime TF700T, with a 1080p-capable display. Set to take on Acer's teased Iconia Tab A700 shown yesterday, the Prime TF700T has a 1020 x 1200 Super IPS+ display with Gorilla Glass, along with some changes to the front camera and some of the wireless performance.

The front-facing camera now runs at 2-megapixels, instead of 1.3, and the rear panel has been redesigned to enhance WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS performance. Still, the TF700T should fit into the same keyboard/battery dock as the existing Transformer Prime. Otherwise it's the same Tegra 3 1.3GHz quadcore, with WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 and microHDMI connectivity along with a microSD card reader.

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF700T will go on sale in North America in Q2, priced at $599 for the 32GB model and $699 for the 64GB model. We can't imagine early-adopters of the existing Prime are going to be too happy, frankly.

We're working on getting images of the new TF700T, and will update when we have them. For more on the Transformer Prime overall, check out our full review.
