One of the upcoming accessories for the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is the Transformer Prime sleeve. Like the iPad 2 Smart Cover, it folds to become a tablet stand. An ASUS Taiwan video shows the sleeve in transforming action.

The ASUS sleeve lacks the magnetic clips of the iPad 2 Smart Cover and its tabs must instead be inserted into slots normally used by the keyboard dock.

The Transformer Prime Sleeve is expected to sell for US$39.
