    Transformer AiO tablet is powered by Intel Core third generation processor to maintain Windows 8 and Nvidia Tegra processor intended for Android.

    Asus brought out Jelly Bean upgrade for Transformer Prime sometime in October which included features like Project Butter and Google Now. It was only last March that Asus Transformer Prime hit the markets in India, priced at Rs. 50,000 supporting Honeycomb (Android 3.0).

    This had been upgraded to ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) after a few months. Currently, the Transformer Prime tablet in India is the Wi-Fi model and a 3G model is not expected. This is because the new Transformer 700 is expected to replace Transformer Prime soon.
