The Padstation also gains instant access to the smartphone's functions including 3G data connection.
The new Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 has been selected for an honoree award in the Personal Electronics category. With its quad-core NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 processor, 10.1" Super IPS+ display and a sleek 8.3mm-thin spun metal case, the Transformer Prime is an eminently portable and powerful Android tablet that further sets itself apart from other tablets in the productivity stakes by way of a keyboard dock.
