Asus' new Transformer Prime TF700T Android 4.0 tablet was just introduced, and we've got hands-on photos. It's a variant of the Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet, and the most significant upgrade here is a move to a 1920 x 1200 resolution, which looks quite sharp and bright. The rear cover design has also been altered to allow for better GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth performance. It's an incredibly light and thin tablet — the prototype feels mostly like plastic, as opposed to the aluminum we're used to — but it still manages to feel solid in the hands. Performance-wise, the 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 SoC didn't seem to disappoint — scrolling, swiping, and moving around in the OS felt smooth and snappy. We'll update you as soon as we find out final prices and an official release date.
