Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201
| Alternative Models |
|Definitely a good upgrade from the original Transformer. The Transformer Prime is the first device to use Nvidia's Tegra 3 platform. The optional keyboard has an additional battery which will allow the Transformer Prime to run up to 18 hours, according to Asus. The add-on nature of this keyboard makes the Transformer Prime a versatile device; able to function as a standalone tablet, or as a laptop-style productivity device. Unfortunately the tablet itself is somewhat lacking in the port department, with only Micro HDMI, MicroSD, and a proprietary dock connector on the tablet itself. Adding the keyboard will also bring along with it a full-sized SD card reader and full-sized USB 2.0 port, though it would have been nice to see one full-sized USB port on the tablet itself along with another on the keyboard for adding a mouse and an external storage device.|

Just like the Transformer Prime one can detach the Tablet from the Keydock and use it as a Tablet only device. On the back it features an 8MP camera with flash and on the front an 2MP camera. Not only does this tablet include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, an e-compass and a gyroscope but also NFC.
|Gigabyte S1081, 10.1", 895gm|

|Kupa X11, 10.1", 1019gm|
The Kupa X11 comes with a multitouch screen and an active digitizer which is pressure sensitive. It is built on Intel's Oak Trail platform sporting a 1.5GHz Processor and packs 2GB of RAM. Battery life is promised to be about 10hrs.
|Lenovo IdeaTab S2109, 9.7", 580gm|
The Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 is an Android 4.0 tablet with a 1 GHz TI OMAP 4430 dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 9.7 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel display. Unlike some other relatively cheap tablets, the IdeaTab S2109 includes Bluetooth 3.0, a micro HDMI output, and a microSDHC card for expansion. It also has a front-facing 1.3MP camera.
|Dell Latitude ST, 10.1", 816gm|
With a focus on business, the Latitude ST offers a hi-resolution screen and long battery life along with basic connectivity options with full-size ports. The casing is rubberised for grip. Capcative and Digitiser inpout layers are included. The optional docking station adds Gigabit Ethernet and comes with a keyboard. The 'Oaktrail' Z670 isn't a powerful CPU so multi-tasking will be limited. If the SSD is fast, it will help improve Windows 7 performance, otherwise it could feel quite sluggish.
