Asus Transformer Prime TF700T, the first Android tablet with NVIDIA's new quad-core Tegra 3 chip, which was expected to get released earlier this year, will hit the UK market only in June, confirms the official Asus UK blog.

According to the blog, ...the recently-announced TF700T model, this product is unlikely to be available in the UK before June at the earliest and no pricing details have been announced.

Overcoming the design flaws of the predecessor, the next version - Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF700T - packs a bigger battery, better screen resolution, new back panel, and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera along with all the specifications of the original Transformer Prime.

Transformer Prime TF700T will have Google's latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

The new Transformer Prime TF700T comes with a 10.1-inch Super IPS + LCD Gorilla Glass display with 1920 x 1200 screen resolution. The tablet is powered by 1.3 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, ULP GeForce GPU and offers 1GB RAM and 32/64 GB internal storage, expandable up to another 32GB via microSD card.

With a 25 Wh battery and an 8 megapixel LED flash rear camera with 1080p video playback and a secondary 2 megapixel front-facing camera and priced between $599 to $699 (confirmed by the Verge and SlashGear), the Asus tablet is all set to give tough competition to all the tablets available presently.
