3G Equipped ASUS Transformer Prime Not Hitting Anytime Soon


If you were holding out on the current ASUS Transformer Prime in hopes of a 3G compatible version with your favorite carrier you may want to exhale.

Well, at least you can finally justify purchasing the more high-def TF700T model we got our hands on at CES last week, launching in Q2 of this year.

Anyone upset at this news or do WiFi-only tablets keep you more than satisfied?

  4. No cell connection = no deal.  Sorry Asus.  You guys rock, but you need a 3G/4G radio otherwise you won’t be able to tear me away from my Xoom.
