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.

Honestly, with the new range of tablets coming out this year, and the iPad 3 just around the corner,  we say avoid this one.
