The successor to the popular Eee Pad Transformer tablet device may be closer to reality than we might have thought. Lambda-Tek, the online store based in UK has listed the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer 2 to be available in Europe on November 7. The device would be using the NVIDIA quad core Tegra 3 as its base chip as per information that Tabletowo published.
Other features of the TF201-1U020A are 1 GB of RAM along with an internal storage capacity of 32 GB. The display area will be of 10.1 inches while the operating system mentioned is Android 3 which could possibility change to 3.2. Also, the device is expected to some in gold color, which it must be said is a bit odd for a mainstream tablet device. The CPU would clock 1.5 GHz and the price would be £537.85 which given the current conversion rates works out to $850. Without tax the cost of the device is £448.21 which translates to about $700.
The device is supposed to be a high speed device running NVIDIA chipset. A unique aspect of the new NVIDIA CPU is that it comprises of 4 cores with the fifth core just for basic tasks which leaves the other four cores for providing the tablet with some raw processing speeds. Its the development of this aspect that has lead to the delay of the launch of the device which was earlier set for mid-August.
