Asus Denies Rumours of 3G Enabled Transformer Prime Tablet Launch

Asus has stated it has no intention of starting production of a 3G enabled version of the Transformer Prime tablet by the end of Q1.

This denial from the company follows media reports that started surfacing earlier in the month about Asus planning to come up with a 3G variant of the Transformer Prime some time soon.

Asus, however, stated it is planning to introduce 3G variants of other high-end products in the Transformer line to expand the company's tablet portfolio.

The company unveiled the Transformer TF700T- a new 10.1 inch Android powered tablet at the recently held Consumer Electronic Show hosted in Las Vegas. The product screen resolution of 1920 x 1200p, full HD capacity and Wi Fi connectivity. It has been reportedly scheduled to launch during the second quarter of this year, reports Focus Taiwan.

Asus further stated the forthcoming TF700T will be designed to co-exist with the existing Wi Fi version of the massively popular Transformer Prime. Apart from that, the company also stated it is very much looking forward to start a rather aggressive tablet shipment during 2012 - the target revolving somewhere around the 6 million unit figure.
