The new tablet – called the Asus Transformer Prime TF700T – is identical to the original one in most aspects except the screen. The original Transformer Prime had a 1280 x 800 resolution. In the upgraded version, Asus is upgrading the screen resolution to an astounding 1920 x 1200 resolution. That makes it a 125% increase in the number of pixels on the display. The quad-core Nvidea Tegra 3 processor that the Transformer Prime is a very capable processor and we expect it to have no difficulty in handling the increased number of pixels.
