Asus says there’s no 3G Transformer Prime
A couple of weeks ago, various websites have reported that Asus would want to launch a 3G version of its Transformer Prime Android tablet. But this doesn’t seem to be true.
According to FocusTaiwan, today Asus stated that “no such product exists on its current roadmap.” However, the company expects to introduce 3G versions of future high-end devices included in the Transformer series.
It’s not clear yet if the new Transformer Prime TF700T (which has a 1920 x 1200 pixels display and a 2MP front-facing camera) will have a 3G version or not. We’ll probably find out more on this closer to the TF700T’s launch date – sometime in the second quarter of the year.
The original Asus Transfomer Prime (pictured above) was launched at the end of 2011 running Android Hoenycomb. Since then, updates to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for it have already started to be rolled-out.
Asus hopes to sell up to 6 million Android tablets this year.
