The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime will not ship with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) but NVIDIA already has it up and running on one. It used it for an “early demo” showing off 1080p video playback and a game called Riptide GP which uses all four of the Tegra 3’s cores.
NVIDIA taped the demo a short two days after Google released the source code for Android 4.0.
The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime is expected in both Canada and the US in early December. The 32GB version will sell for US$499 and the 64GB one for US$599. The optional keyboard docking accessory will sell for US$149 (Canadian prices are expected to be on par with US ones).
