1:39 /

At CES in Las Vegas, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang shows off the new Asus Transformer Prime tablet with Android Ice Cream Sandwich, featuring Nvidia's Tegra 3 chip. It is available today for $249.

It's my favorite tablet but it's also has become my favorite computer. And it's the Asus transformer prime. Now, the engineers over at Asus did a fabulous job with this design. It's a thin tablet. It's the thinnest tablet in the world. It's also the light, it's the lightest tablet in the world. And it's full HD and everything you do is 60 hertz. It's just battery silky smooth. When you attach it, it automatically connects and you have a key board and the keyboard works perfectly. It works exactly like you expect it to work. In the morning, every morning I go through all of the... the news that you guys write and Google currents and it aggregates all of the news. I go through it in 45 minutes or so and drink a cup of coffee. I'm off to work. At night, I come back and I catch up on all of your news during the day and I sit on... sit on the couch with it in a tablet way. The buzz in the industry has been so high. We were the first to bring a dual core tablet to the world. We're the first to bring a Quad core tablet to the world and today, we're delighted to announce that the engineers at Asus and the engineer at Nvidia had been working around the clock over the holidays and today it just got approved by Google, Tegra 3 transformer prime ice cream sandwich will be available today.
