Asus Looking To Produce A More Affordable Transformer Prime?

Asus new TF300T tablet is not the Transformer 2

A new Asus Android tablet has surfaced. The TF300T tablet began leaking earlier this month. It was original thought to be the Transformer 2 and come with better specs than the Transformer Prime. However, Phonearena has learned that, that may not be the case.

According to a polish website called tabletowo, the specs of the TF300T are actually comparable to the Transformer Prime if not a little less tech heavy.  The TF300T is believed to have a 10.1″ display, quad-core 1.2ghz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, and 1gb of RAM. All very similar to the Transformer Prime. Add in the 8mp camera on the rear and 1.2mp camera on the front, you’re looking at almost the same machine.

The only difference is the size and weight of the tablet itself and the fact that this TF300T will come with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich out of the gate.  The TF300T is coming in at 640 grams vs the 586 gram weight of the Transformer Prime. The TF300T is 9.9mm thick while the Prime is just 8.3mm thick.

The final difference is that the Transformer Prime comes with 32gb of on board memory. The TF300T comes in a 16gb model.

From the looks of it Asus may be looking to offer a premium tablet for a little less than the Transformer Prime costs. We should see this new Asus tablet next week at Mobile World Congress.
