Asus Transformer Prime comes to India at 50 k
Asus has launched their Transformer Prime Tablet in India, for a whopping 49,900. What are you thinking Asus?, the tablet features a 10.1-inch 1280×800 pixel IPS display and a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor . Among other things are the 1GB RAM, 32/64GB ROM, 8.0 MP rear and a 1.2 MP front camera.
Asus claims a 12 hour + 6 hour battery life on the Prime + Dock, which is more or less accurate in the tests we have seen.
