Comes with a phone and a larger tablet form with a keyboard all carrying separate batteries so that you could run upto 14 hrs on it.
Without 3G or 4G your tables are useless. Few mounts ago i decided to purchase Prime but without 3/4G i wouldn't do that. I stay and waiting to see TF700T and if it's again without 3G or 4G I'll decide to change brand ASUS froever becouse ASUS not listening users wishes and buy Samsung or Motorola. I think you will lose a lot of your customers and lot of potential future customers. So think wisely.
Asus it is time to listen to the customers.
It is not everybody is desperate for it but some people do need 3G. I want to buy this for my parents who travel between locations so WiFi is not an option so is tethering.
I do not want to end up with another Samsung product who has become a snob thinking that they premier vendor but leave their customers on long contract without software update.
Come on Asus it cannot be that hard to see that 3G tablets have a market.

ASUS..., we need 3G... at least as an option. Please!
There is no need of 3g in a tablet,just share your phone 3g connexion with yout tablet via wifi. How many guys have really need a 3g contract for the pad in addition tothe phone contract?
if you need more than wifi get a mobile hotspot from verizon(4g) or sprint(3g), or use your phones hotspot which is cheaper than gsm would cost you.
You can use wi-fi modem to connect to internet whenever there's no wi-fi connection
Without 3G it cannot be considered complete. While smaller companies and brands ofer wi-fi, 3g and some of them even gsm voice support, Asus cannot ofer these options in a premium quality product ? Wi-fi is not enough as data source. In trains or in remote locations where wi-fi hotspots dont exists, it practically becomes...expensive furniture.

Ex: I really hate Apple brand they never gave you external-sd card, even they can do ...
ADROID the huge killer Aplle(Lemon?¿>)
oh please asus ... implement GSM mode to TF Prime ... wifi isn't enough :(
I fail to understand the ANIMOSITY of ASUS with in built 3G capabilities. As I understand putting 3G hardware costs 10 to 15 USD extra which actually turns out to be less than 5% of the total price but it adds more than 100% convenience for users. Sometimes, difficult to understand these corporates' fancies like that of APPLE against flash, like that of HTC against HDMI slots, like that of motorola against open bootloaders and finally that of microsoft against expandable SD cards. Why can't these guys come together and build standardisation and then compete on innovation, quality and capability rather than features.
when will this be available in cebu?.. cant wait to get my hands on this gadget!
the backdont look as good they hould have kept the other back byt iproved it it look cheap now
Although Asus was clumsy with the design of GPS and WiFi, they handled it well by offering full refund, extended warranty and together with a new product that should fix it. They gave people a reasonable choice. Much better than Apple handlet IPhane4 antenna issue - "you are holding it wrong".
My only concern with this product is not to have 3G version. I know most people would not mind. Some would need it as in holidays or constantly moving between locations with no tethering option from a mobile phone. If you need it, it is a deal breaker which is for me.
I cannot imagine it would be too difficult for Asus to include 3G version.
ICS is an individual OS , please don't make a comparison with others . If you like Android , you'll like this enormous machine .
Transformer Prime TF700T has:
1. a higher resolution screen and
2. a redesigned back panel, which ASUS promises to enhance GPS performance (current Transformer Prime has full aluminium back panel and that leads to a long waiting time for the GPS signal to be locked on).
