ASUS Transformer Prime Malaysian launch to happen before Chinese New Year

The ASUS Transformer Prime is set to make its Malaysian debut before Chinese New Year, ASUS Malaysia revealed on its Facebook page today. The announcement didn’t specifically say when the launch will happen but our money is on Friday, January 19 20.

Another uncertainty is the version that Malaysians will get. As you may have known, there are two versions of the Transformer Prime, the TF201 and the improved TF700T unveiled at CES. The TF700T brings 1080p display with a 1920×1200 pixel SuperIPS+ screen and a revised rear cover design for better GPS, WiFi and Bluetooh performance. The front camera has also been upgraded from 1.2MP to 2MP. We’re guessing Malaysia will get the earlier TF201 version but one can certainly hope.

While we wait for a full announcement from ASUS, check out our comprehensive coverage of the Transformer Prime here. Particularly the hands-on videos here and here, as well as some sample pictures taken using the 8MP camera here.
