If you’re currently the happy owner of the ASUS Transformer Prime, the device is about to lose a little bit of its luster. A newer, more super-fantabulous higher-end TF700T model was just revealed by ASUS — this time, featuring a full HD 1920x1o80 resolution display (1080p for you regular folk). This new T-Prime wont phase out the older TF201 model and is only a higher end option for those that like to attach another “premium” status to and an already premium device.

This time around, the TF700T model will actually ship with Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed (no need to wait around for an update) and is 100% compatible with the current Transformer Prime keyboard dock. Apparently, it will also use a new back panel design that should enhance performance for WiFi, Bluetooth and — wait for it — GPS (woot!).

The Transformer Prime HD will arrive Q2 of this year with a $600 and $700 price tag for the 32GB and 6GB versions, respectively. The new ASUS most likely received word of Acer’s upcoming 1080p’d Iconia Tab A700 and wasn’t about to be 1-uped by their rival. Since both devices will largely feature the same specs, the only think left is versatility and pricing. Which do you think you will choose?
