Quad-core Tegra 3 powered beast.

At AsiaD, Asus boss Jonney Shih unveiled the next iteration of the company’s famous Transformer line of tablets.

Named Transformer Prime, the device does justice to the grandeur name by sporting NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core chip, a 10″ display, HDMI port, a 14.5 hour battery, SD card slot, and a shiny exterior that matches its newly introduced Zenbook notebooks. Oh and did we forget, it’s super thin measuring upto just 8.3mm thick.

Shih wasn’t clear if the Prime will feature Honeycomb or the recently launched Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android. And while on the matter, Shih said that users can expect Ice Cream Sandwich tablets by the end of the year.

There is no release date on the Prime yet, although Asus has set aside November 9 as the official announce date.
