Confirming this to The Mobile Indian, an ASUS spokesperson said that the tablet will be launched in the next 15 days with an asking price of Rs 49,990 with the docking station.

The Asus Transformer Prime comes with Nvidia 1.3 GHz Tegra 3 'Kal-el' quad-core processor. The tablet is likely to arrive in the market with Android 3.2 Honeycomb but will also be upgradable to Android 4.0 almost immediately.

The tablet is very slim in profile even with the keyboard dock and has a metallic body.

The tablet has been criticised for poor GPS and Wi-Fi signal. Asus has said that though the GPS signal is hindered by the metallic body, the remedy is already being worked out.
