This is the successor of Eee Pad Transformer tablet PC and world’s first tablet with ARM Cortex A9 processor (Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad Core CPU).

If we talk about the original Transformer, the thickness was 12.9 mm with a weight of 690 grams. The metallic finish makes the tablet more durable and attractive in hand. This new metallic finish has a hydro-oleo phobic coat on both the sides and housing that allows easy smudge and finger print removal.

Hardware features of Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime

The quad core tablet has a 10.1-inch super IPS+ Gorilla Glass display at 1280 x 800 resolution, mini HDMI output, and a micro SD slot. The display with a 178-degree viewing angle gives a maximum brightness of 600 nits. Other key features includes, 1GB RAM, eight megapixel rear camera, 1.2 megapixel front camera wrapped in brushed aluminum for video chat and 32 GB/64 GB of internal storage. The rear camera comes with an auto focusing f/2.4 lens and a back illuminated CMOS sensor that has the capability to shoot 1080 p videos. The new sensor and aperture of the camera allows you to take pictures faster than ever. Some common features are USB 2.0, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, gyroscope and Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n). The tablet also gives the option of touch to focus and if we believe Asus, it can give 30
percent color enhancement over currently available tablets.

Like the original Transformer, Prime will also give an option to attach an external keyboard that gives a laptop like look and feel. The 1.2-pound keyboard dock includes a touchpad, full sized SD slot and USB 2.0 port. It will feature Nvidia Tegra 3 clocking at 1.3 GHz that will be able to handle heavy use very easily. Apart from that, the processor provides up to 3x graphics performance then Tegra 2 and 63% lower power consumption. If you want to increase the battery backup, use the keyboard dock that gives extra life to the tablet because of the inbuilt battery. With such a huge battery backup, you can watch several movies while on road trip or enjoy hours of hardcore games.

The company improves the sound quality by putting in 17×12 mm speakers that are 6 percent larger than the previous Transformer. These speakers combined with Sonic Master will produce crystal clear sound, audio fidelity, distinctive vocal enhancements and overall a immersive audio experience with your music tracks or movies.

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.


The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
