The new Transformer Prime TF700T will sport a 1,920x1,200-pixel screen resolution and other upgrades to make you feel bad for buying the "older" Prime.

Upgrade ya

The Transformer Prime TF700T will likely be the first tablet released to sport a 2.3-million-pixel, 1,920x1,200 screen. For those keeping count, that's more than twice the pixel count of any previous tablets, which top out at 1,280x800 (1.02 millions pixels).

Slight redesign

See that dark, plastic portion on the Prime, which was all metal before? That little design change means better-performing GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. That is, according to Asus.

HD conferencing

The front-facing camera has been upgraded from 1.2-megapixel to 2-megapixel. This will allow users to conduct video conferencing in HD now. See? You can see the veins in my head popping out, where before you couldn't. Actually, I don't know if that's true. It's not like I brought a Transformer to CES with me to compare. Anyway, Asus says you should expect higher quality images from the camera.

Shipping with...

In a few months, I won't get as much of a kick out of seeing "Android 4.0" on a Settings menu, but for now it's still pretty exciting. Also, although it says TF202T, Asus assured me that this was the TF700T.
