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). With use of this processor, this will be the most powerful consumer tablet and ultimate consumption device on the planet.

Apart from a star processor, Asus is throwing many other extra goodies to make sure you buy the new Transformer Prime. Starting with the looks, the design is reworked with finish that is more metallic, thickness has gone down to 8.3 mm and the weight decreases to 586 grams. 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.

With so much promising specifications and extended battery life, do you think the tablet can challenge iPad or the current champion Samsung Galaxy Tab? Share your views and comment with us.

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…

A Peek at the Google Music Beta Install Process

This is a guest post by Nadia Jones.

Those of you in the United States might have noticed that Google Music Beta has started to get some buzz on the internet. Invites have gone out wave after wave, and as one of the people to get an early look at the application, I have to say that it's definitely worth your time to get in on this as soon as possible. I've used it for a few days and can say that it's greatly simplified my music experience. I no longer have to worry about which songs are on my work computer or home computer, nor do I have to carry around my iPod and my Android, as I can access my Google music on the phone as well.

Perhaps the greatest thing about Google Music Beta is that the install process hardly takes any time at all, which is what we've come to expect from the people at Google.

Once you get the invite in your email, click on the link and Google will take you through a series of installation steps: you will electronically accept some terms, install t…

Motorola Droid 4 – The RAZR with a QWERTY

This is a guest post by Simon about Motorola Droid 4. After a bit of a slump when the first iPhone was launched, Motorola managed to pull itself back from the brink by releasing the Motorola Droid (also known as the Milestone in some markets). This highly popular Android device came with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and has been one of the most popular phone brands in recent years.

Motorola has since produced 3 Droid phones, although only 2 of these made an appearance outside of the US. Now the company is set to launch its fourth Droid, which builds on earlier versions while also sharing many design characteristics with the new RAZR.

Like the RAZR, the Droid 4 is powered by a dual core 1.2GHz chip with 1GB RAM, and comes with full LTE support. The screen is a little smaller than the RAZR's, measuring just 4 inches instead of 4.3, but the phone does come with a physical QWERTY keyboard, a major factor in the popularity and success of earlier Droid phones.

The Droid 4 also sees an im…
