Android 4.0 coming to ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime Tablet

Taiwan based company, Asus, has been release their teaser video of the second generation Transformer android tablet or also known as Transformer Prime.

While Samsung dropped the “Prime” name from the Galaxy Nexus, ASUS seems to have picked it up for its next Transformer tablet. The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime (formerly known as Transformer 2) has been quite the buzzword lately.

This “transformer prime“have a 10 inch display plus 8.33 mm chassis and a laptop dock. But the most impressive thing is that the Prime is powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra processor. The company remains silent as we try to crack some more information about the chip that powered the device.

The tablet will run on the chip-set known as Project Kal-el. Another interesting naming. Anyway on their released two white paper, Nvidia revealed how Kal-el use vSMP (variable Symmetric Multiprocessing) technology which actually adds a fifth ARM Cortex A9 CPU “companion core” to a quad-core architecture. All five CPU cores are identical ARM Cortex A9 CPUs, but the “companion” core is OS-transparent, and is used primarily for background processing when the device is in standby mode.
