Asus Transformer Prime vs Lenovo LePad K2

The Asus Transformer Prime is set to be the first quad-core tablet to hit the market, but it seems Lenovo are looking to spoil the Asus Christmas party with their 'new' device; the LePad K2. Read on to find out about our initial thoughts on these two mighty tablets.

Until last week we were all hyped over the Asus Transformer Prime, and we couldn’t wait to get our hands on the first ever quad-core tablet. Well, that is until we learnt about Lenovo’s new device. Flying under the radar is the LePad K2, a tablet sporting a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. We’d like to stress that Lenovo have yet to announce the tablet, but with pictures of the supposed device littering the web, we’re quietly confident we may see an announcement before the end of the year.

So what else do we know about the Lenovo’s new brain child? Well for one, the tablet will be packing a beastly 2GB of RAM, which dwarfs  the 1GB of RAM in the Transformer Prime. Although it is terrifically exciting to think we could have that sort of power in our hands, we do have slight worries that the battery life of the K2 will be seriously drained because of the high level of RAM. The screen size of the LePad K2 will be a lovingly-large 10.1″ although details of the resolution and display are sparse.

One of the most exciting things about the new tablet is that the latest Android OS update, Ice Cream Sandwich, will be present on the launch of the device. But for those who’ve already got their deposits down on the Transformer Prime, don’t worry, an Ice Cream Sandwich update will be released for the tablet soon after its release.

Although we haven’t got as many details about the new tablet as we would have really liked, we’re excited to see what Lenovo can muster up. Regardless, we still can’t wait to get our Android-loving hands on the mighty Transformer Prime. Watch this space!
