Asus seems to be on a roll with a host of tablet announcements in their kitty, this year. They already unveiled a bunch of them at CES and now we have a new mystery tab doing the rounds on the Internet. A Taiwanese site, NCCC claims to have found, what could be, the successor to the Transformer Prime. If we go purely by the codenames, then the original Transformer was the TF101, the Prime was TF201 and this one, apparently is the TF300T, which points to a possible successor.

Looks practically identical

Other than these two pictures, we don’t have any more details on the tablet. From the looks of it, it bares the spitting image of the original transformer from the front and back. We can only spot a rear camera and the 3.5mm headphone jack from this and what looks like a power button towards the far end of the tablet. If this is the successor to the Transformer Prime then you can expect it to have a quad-core processor. There is also a possibility that it could be a cheaper version of the Transformer without the dock connector and metal body. The red coloured back could be plastic instead of metal and if it is going to be a cheaper alternative, it may just have a dual-core processor, instead of a quad-core.

Not much to go on

We hope to see more of the 10.1-inch tablet at MCW, later this month. Hopefully, it will be running ICS and not Honeycomb with a promised update, later in the year.
