Last time, the tablet with a detachable keyboard, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer 2 , gave competitors a run for their money. The debut earlier this year, made a quick reputation to establish it as one of the best Android tablets in the market. The device has lived up to the expectations continuously, and won many awards and reviews for a super-packed user experience it provided. Now the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is again going to touch another high. A sequel to it, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer 2, has been announced to hit the retail markets by the end of this year, most probably by the beginning of the holiday season.
ASUS Eee Pad Transformer 2 will feature an exclusive, much awaited, and newly developed NVIDIA Kal-El quad-core mobile processor that has been in fact deemed as a quint-core processor. The presence of a fifth core has drawn a worldwide technology debate and attention.
The fifth ‘Cortex A9’ core works as a mutual companion with other fours. It handles less important tasks by consuming low power while other cores are powered down to minimize power consumption. In the same way, the fifth companion core is put out of action for higher performance tasks. It simply means the processor would have much more computational power. Also known as Tegra 3, the NVIDIA product is certainly a top-match for an equally versatile ASUS Eee Pad Transformer 2.
The ASUS Transformer 2 tablet is expected to come in a 10-inch size, a design similar to its predecessor, and a display resolution of 1200 x 800. The price shall be around $499, a 100 dollar more than the current ASUS Eee Pad Transformer. With exceptional efficiency and prime performance powered by NVIDIA Kal-El, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer 2 is all set to top its class with a next generation product.
