The Asus Transformer Prime was the great silver hope for Android fans -- and by "silver" I mean "champagne gold" or "amethyst gray" or whatever awkward-sounding color combo Asus assigns to its tablet.
Arguably, the Prime marked the first time Android fans could hold up a tablet to their iPad-owning frenemies and say, "Now I own the most powerful -- on paper at least -- tablet in the universe!" Or something like that.
Aside from some GPS and Wi-Fi issues, the Prime was a robust and powerful tablet, but was probably too expensive for most wallets. Enter: the Transformer Pad TF300.
The TF300 ditches the Prime's metal body for a plastic one; removes the LED flashlight from the back camera; and unfortunately loses access to the Prime's sometimes helpful Super IPS mode.
Starting at only $380 (for 16GB), though, those loses might not be such a bad trade-off. Check out the full review of the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 to find out if the TF300 is a worthy bearer of the Transformer name.
