First device to integrate NVIDIA's quad-core chip

ASUS' Transformer Prime tablet appears to have been dissected by the FCC during tests for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The Commission's photographs provide an early look at the device's internal components, including NVIDIA's Tegra 3 chipset. The Prime is expected to be the first device to arrive on the market with the new quad-core processor.

The processor, which is referred to by the monicker Kal-El, is said to enable the device to last up to 14 hours on a single charge. The chipset is expected to power Android 3.2 at launch, with a future upgrade to Android 4.0.

ASUS is said to be preparing to formally introduce the tablet and its companion dock on November 9, with pricing expected to start at $499. [via Wirelessgoodness]
