Tablet Prizefight: Transformer Prime vs. iPad 2

What do you get when you put a soon-to-be-replaced Apple iPad in the ring with the latest Android 4.0 slate from Asus? A damn good fight, that's what.

We all know the iPad 2. Sure, it's great, but it's about time someone cut that smug slate down to size. You know, give it the ol' sucker punch before the iPad 3 comes out and turns us into drooling fanboys again.

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is up for the challenge. It has the beauty (polished metal construction), the brawn (Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor), and the brains (Android 4.0) to make the iPad feel a little out of its league.

Failing that, Asus gave the Transformer Prime a secret weapon--a snap-on keyboard dock with an extended battery.

Are you starting to feel bad for the iPad? Good. It's about time that fancy-pants started to feel less than invincible.

Fight!
