Asus Transformer Prime Up for Pre-Order On Amazon Germany, Keyboard Dock Included

After becoming available for pre-order on the Website of a less known German retailer, Asus' Nvidia Tegra 3 powered Transformer Prime was now featured on Amazon.de which also carries the tablet's accompanying keyboard dock.

Amazon Germany added to its website two Transformer Prime bundles that include the 32GB version of the tablet and the keyboard dock for EUR 599 ($809 US), as well as the 64GB model that retails for the same price but without the dock.

The tablets are available in both Silver and Gold and users also have the option of picking up the keyboard dock (also available in the two colors mentioned above) as a standalone accessory for EUR 149.00, or roughly $201 US.

Before getting too excited about this news, we have to mention that Amazon doesn't provide its customers with a shipping date for the Transformer Prime, so we don't know if these will arrive in time for making it under your Christmas tree this year.

In addition to the Transformer Prime and its keyboard dock, Amazon.de also lists a series of “smart covers” for the Asus tablet.

These are available in different colors and according to Netbook News are selling for EUR 39.00 each (roughly $52 US).

As many of you already know, Asus' latest creation is built around an Nvidia Kal-El chip and 10.1-inch screen and is housed inside a sleek chassis measuring only 8.3mm (0.33 inches) in thickness designed to mimic the aspect of the company's Zenbook laptops.

The basic model comes with 32GB of storage space, which can be upgraded via a microSD slot, but users also have the option of going for a beefier 64GB model and the 10-inch IPS+ display has a native resolution of 1280 x 800.

The rest of the features list includes an GPS, a gyroscope, SonicMaster audio, a 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera as well as an 8MP rear snapper with an f/2.4 lens, a back-illuminated CMOS sensor and 1080p video recording capabilities.

Initially, Asus' Transformer Prime will be run the Honeycomb 3.2 version of the Android operating system, but later in December the Taiwanese company will introduce an update to Ice Cream Sandwich.
