Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime Features Locked Bootloader
Asus Transformer Prime is the first Android tablet fully featured with awesome design, powered with quad-core CPU, best camera integrated and many more. Asus recently launched their first quad core android-based tablet sporting an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and running Android’s 3.2 Honeycomb on it.
The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime is expected to hit the U.S market in January 2012. However, the latest news suggests that pre-order stock available at both the Best Buy and GameSpot has been sold out and currently listed as not being available.
Apart from this, here is a new catch appears, rom the XDA developers have discovered that the Transformer Prime comes with a locked bootloader, just like HTC did with some of their previous devices.
Once again about Features: The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime features a 10.1-inch Super IPS + LCD Gorilla Glass display with 1280×800 screen resolution. It is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, ULP GeForce GPU and offers 1GB RAM and 32/64 GB internal storage, which can be further expanded by another 32GB via microSD card.
ASUS Transformer Prime implemented with a rear-facing 8-megapixel camera with LED Flash capable to record 1080p HD video playback, and a secondary front-facing camera with 1.2MP. The Tranformer Prime optimizes Google’s Android Honeycomb 3.0 version OS, and can be upgradable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Price-wise, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime is likely to cost $499 for the 32GB version and $599 for the 64GB version. This is lower than the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi, which costs $499.99 for the 16GB version and $599.99 for the 32GB version.
While the Transformer Prime bootloader features a 128-bit encryption key as well, means that we won’t see the custom ROMs on device, and for more detailed information you can visit the XDA-developers forums.
