Even though the Asus Transformer Prime launched only several weeks ago, Asus is ready to push out an upgraded model out the door starting in Q2 of 2012.  The upgraded model is known as the Transformer Prime (TF700T) and represents an upgrade for those looking for a tablet with industry-leading specs across the board. For example, it features an improved 10.1 inch touch screen display with a 1920 X 1200 resolution, 2MP front facing camera, and an improved back design to help alleviate GPS and WiFi issues.  In terms of pricing, the 32GB model will be available for $599 and the 64GB model for $699.  The Transformer Prime TF700T is said to launch with Android 4.0 onboard as well.  Lastly, it is also compatible with the existing keyboard dock found on the original Transformer Prime.

Also, Asus is looking to make a presence in the smaller tablet department with the seven inch Eee Pad MeMO (ME370T).  This seven inch Android 4.0 device contains a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, a 1200 x 800 screen resolution, 5MP rear facing camera, 1.2MP front facing camera, and will also be available for purchase in Q2 of 2012.  Unfortunately, there is no mention of a retail price at this time.
