The keyboard of the $150 optional dock is small but doesn't feel cramped, even with giant hands (like mine).
That's the iPad 2 on the left, Prime in the middle, and Galaxy tab 10.1 on the right. While they're all really thin, the Prime wins the supermodel contest by a hair.
The 40-pin connection port and refined design of the two connections makes attaching the tablet to the dock a much easier process than on the original Transformer.
The Prime is so strong it can carry both the iPad 2 (middle) and the Galaxy tab 10.1 (top). Impressive!
The 8-megapixel rear camera provides continuous illumination from its LED light when recording video in low light situations.
From left to right, we see a microphone pinhole, microSD slot, Micro-HDMI port and the volume rocker.
Super IPS+ mode makes using the tablet in sunlight a less frustrating experience than on other tablets. Still, it's no E-ink though.
