ASUS just announced an updated version of the Eee Pad Transformer Prime, the TF700T. The new tablet keeps the same form factor, dimensions, screen size and weight of the original TF Prime. It also includes the same Tegra 3 SoC running at 1.3GHz, but it now adds a 1920 x 1200 panel. In addition to the new panel is an upgraded 2MP front facing camera and finally a new back panel for improved wireless performance. Battery capacity and the rest of the specs remain identical to the TF201.

ASUS expects the TF700T to be available in North America sometime in late Q2 (I'd assume May/June), with MSRPs between $599 - $699. The original Prime will still be available in the market, the TF700T will simply be a higher end model.

    I've been waiting for 1 month for Prime's release. In Canada, Transformer Prime isn't in store yet. It will hit the market next week in electronic shops.

    I don't care about the graphic about a 10' tablet. But, if wireless doesn't work good, I don't want to buy the first version of Prime and regret it. I don't care about GPS too.

    My question is : Is the wireless issues is a big problem about the tablet ? I want examples of problems I could have with it. I read all posts about it but I can't make myself an Idea.

    2 days after I ordered mine and on the same day that it is shipped they announce this. Bleh.

    And I, for one, welcome our new high-ppi overlords. With all the high-ppi displays on phones, I really felt the ipad looked terribly grainy when I first worked with it for a longer period of time.

    The original prime is supposed to be better, but I imagine this new version will be an entirely different experience altogether. Too bad the sub-par graphic performance isn't updated, won't be a good gaming companion at that resolution.
