If you live in Canada and don’t own a tablet, prepare to get one this Christmas. I’m talking about the ASUS Transformer Prime, the quad core Tegra 3 slate that will come to Canada on the 22nd of this month. We’ve been hearing a lot about this tablet lately and you must know that it took in Taiwan last week and now it’s headed to the USA in the following days.

With a price of $499 and a battery life of 12 hours, or even 18 hours with that keyboard dock, this device might become the highest selling Android tablet till now. Transformer Prime is listed as sold out now at Best Buy, so don’t get your hopes up. However, I’m sure that as soon as more units arrive, you’ll be informed and able to place an order.

It’s strange that the launch is so close to Christmas, so you’ll have to dash and try to get a unit. Let me remind you that this beautiful slate is a mere 8.3mm in thickness, comes with a 10.1 inch display, quad core processor from Nvidia and an 8 megapixel camera, plus WiFi connectivity and 32GB of internal memory. Getting one?
