Here it is, folks: The Android tablet you've been waiting to lead you out of the dual-core doldrums of 2011 and into the quad-core continuum of 2012. Welcome to the era of NVIDIA's Tegra 3 system-on-a-chip, bought to you by the ASUS Transformer Prime.
That's a lot of bluster, to be sure. But even in a short time with the Transformer Prime, you're quick to realize that this is a whole lot of hardware. NVIDIA's Tegra 2 dual-core platform brought Android tablets into the mainstream. And for as much as Tegra 2 brought to Android gaming and video playback, Tegra 3 takes it that much further.
But throw in the hardare prowess of ASUS' Transformer line -- this is the company that took a fledgling tablet and turned it into a viable Android laptop on the first try -- and what you've got is a combination of hardware and software that's leading the way into 2012 for an entire series of devices.
Check out our video hands-on above, and be sure to sift through our complete Transformer Prime review.
