Asus transformer prime tablet

I like these, how do I figure out what tablets are available with 4g services? Do I have to go to every cell providers site and investigate, or can you get service from any provider with the pad of your choice?

ASUS has not announced a Transformer Prime for any specific carrier (yet). So the only way to get 'net access is via WIFI... no 3G/4G.

The only tablet that even has 4G capabilities is the Xoom on Verizon, with their LTE service.

Consider getting a smartphone that you tether.

Heard the other day Asus is getting sued by Hasbro? for the name Transformer Prime. Might be a couple months for the release. Anyone else heard about this?

Yup, it will probably be settled or thrown out (non competing industries), but it will be delayed.

I really liked the Asus Transformer, if they would have gotten it to market sooner...... I probably would have gotten that over the iPad.

As another note, iPad 3 should be released in a month or so...... I would wait to compare the two before buying.

The Asus Transformer Prime tablet is absolutely the BEST tablet out there (if you're lucky enough to get your hand on one, many many delays). It's an absolute Ipad killer (thinner, lighter, faster, better & CHEAPER). I really can't see why anyone would buy any other tablet, considering this tablet has everything other tablets can't even compete with.

Unless you guys are waiting to see what tablets with Tegra 3 are coming out in 2012...Can't wait for the apple fanboys to come defend their precious overpriced ipads.
