It’s always fun when a giveaway is announced and it’s even better when what will be available for free is a popular Android tablet. Our friends at Ubergizmo have announced that they have partnered with NVIDIA for giving away two Asus Transformer Prime tablets (for two winners) and you just have to post a comment to participate.
Ever since the recent launch of the Transformer Prime Android tablet, Asus has been busy with the slate’s issues. But that does not stop Asus from adding new devices to their tablet line-up. We already know that the company is set to introduce a budget 7-inch slate later in the second quarter. But now, it appears like there is yet another tablet.
Asus appears to be going through tough times with all the issues on their Transformer Prime quad-core tablet. The GPS software fix didn’t quite work out as expected, but good news that the company has officially announced that the bootloader unlock tool will be released next month should put a smile on your face.
According to a report from Focus Taiwan, Asus has cleared up rumors about the 3G version, stating they have no such plans on their current roadmap.
The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime continues to amaze us. At CES 2012, an avid gamer shows his prowess with Shadowgun running flawlessly on the Tegra 3 powered tablet. Connected to a large screen via HDMI and controlled by an ordinary Xbox 360 controller, there’s really no telling the difference.
Ice Cream Sandwich for the ASUS EEE Pad Transformer Prime Android tablet was planned to be available much later than it appears to be happening, as it has started to roll out for users just a couple of days ago. ASUS, ever anxious to see their achievement properly appreciated at CES 2012, even decided to make an introductory video themselves.
And for those of you who are interested in free stuff, NVIDIA has announced that it will be giving away a free ASUS Transformer Prime every day during the show. If you are interested in trying your luck, just pay a visit to the company’s Facebook page and hit the Like button.
Asus is updating its Transformer Prime firmware from 126.96.36.199 to build 188.8.131.52 which is meant to address several problems identified by the company. First, it attempts to “enhance GPS speed” by automatically downloading satellite location tables over WiFi.
According to NotebookItalia, who got this leaked rendering, ASUS will officially announce a 7-inch version of its successful Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime. The rendering makes it look like it’s running Android Honeycomb, and at launch time it’s quite possible, as no recent ASUS Android devices were launched with Ice Cream Sandwich just yet.
The fine folks at XDA-Developers report that ASUS has chosen to lock a bootloader on its flagship tablet, the Eee Pad Transformer Prime. This is extremely sad news for all the tinkerers who were hoping to get Ice Cream Sandwich on this powerful tablet currently running a lightly customized stock ASUS Android 3.2 (Honeycomb).
Like a previous ASUS model, this Eee Pad Transformer Prime will take an optional docking keyboard for another $150 that transforms your Android tablet in to a sort of Android netbook, with the keyboard also hiding an additional battery.
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is one of my favorite current Android tablets, but it looks like Asus is outdoing itself with the successor. What we once knew as the Eee Pad Transformer 2 is now officially revealed as the Eee Pad Transformer Prime. And yes, it’s got Kal-El going on.
ASUSTeK Computer goes to extraordinary measures to appeal to widest possible audience of their potential customers. Original ASUS Eee Pad Transformer was and still is one of the most popular 10-inch Android slates, even if the Transformer Prime clearly takes the role of ASUS flagship tablet.
One the most hotly anticipated flicks next summer – yes, I’m already thinking that far ahead – is the CG-animated Transformers movie, which is sure to be a hit with just about any kid who grew up in the 80s. Well, those folks, myself included, are all grown up now and some have gotten themselves […]

It seems that HP has begun a hiring spree, looking for 50 new employees to help it expand its WebOS team. Wait– what?
In the blog post Microsoft’s David Washington detailed how Windows 8, which is on its way later this year, will handle a multitude of different equipment and display setups, including the way that Metro will scale itself with different resolutions. At the standard 1366×768, no scaling will be needed but at other resolutions this is going to change in order to make the UI look and work as best as possible. With a 1920×1080 resolution there will be 140% scaling applied and for 2560×1440 resolutions there would even be 180% scaling.
When the new iPad was revealed to the world, Apple told us that the new A5X chip spanked the Tegra 3 processor from NVIDIA. But those are just claims. How does the comparison stack up when you put them under real benchmarks and real world experiences?
The new iPad, as you know, has arrived with impressive specs, but all those features have resulted in the device becoming fatter and heavier. That’s certainly not a big problem, but those of you who are dying to see a super-thin tablet should check out the Android-running Archos G10 XS, which is the latest in a […]
How does a 1.27 pound tablet/netbook hybrid running Android 4.0 ICS sound to you? That’s what you get with Lenovo’s new IdeaTab S2.
Motorola was not the first and it probably won’t be the last company that struggles with their customers over the issue. What seems to making users particularly angry with Motorola is that in early 2011 Motorola had promised to unlock the bootloaders of its smartphones and while it did unlock a few, a majority of Motorola phones remain locked.
Acer America has just announced that the Acer Iconia Tab A200 will go on sale in the US on January 15th. The Android 3.2 slate features a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, a 1280 x 800 10.1-inch display, and 8 GB and 16 GB storage options.
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 has been pretty big for Sega, but they skipped out on the Android love for that title. That’s changing for the next chapter, as Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II is being launched on Android some time this year.
You’ve seen just about everything there is to see when it comes to RC cars, right? What about one that transforms instantly before your eyes to a dancing robot that has a pretty strong resemblance to one Optimus Prime?
You know how Japan has that life-sized Gundam? Well, it’s not like China wants to be outdone in its front with oversized fighting robots, so some guy who calls himself Steel Legend decided to make a real life replica of Megatron, leader of the Decepticons.
With a name like Cybertron, you would so hope that this “new” line of Mini-PC computers would have something to do with Optimus Prime, Starscream, and the rest of the Transformers universe. Unfortunately, the real net result is little more than an overpriced knockoff. The Asus Eee PC has been hugely successful, so Cybertron has […]
