Here is a quick feature comparison between the two leading tablet devices:
The Transformer Prime TF700T comes with dimensions of 263 x 180.8 x 8.3 mm and weighs 586 grams, whereas the Galaxy Note 10.1s dimensions are 256.7 x 175.3 x 8.9 mm.
The 10.1 inch TF700T sports a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels at 224ppi (pixels per inch) pixel density.
While the company has enhanced the display by adding 50 percent more pixel density than the original Prime, the tablet is still less impressive than the 2048 X 1536 pixels of the new iPad.
However, the Super IPS+ display panel of the Asus tablet enhances both image clarity and crispness, besides enriching colour accuracy and brightness levels.
On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Note sports a 10.1 inch PLS TFT touchscreen display with 800 X 1280 pixels resolution at 149ppi pixel density, which is too meagre compared to the iPad standards.
Processor and Memory
The Samsung Galaxy Note is powered by a dual core 1.4 GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor, Mali 400MP GPU, Exynos chipset and 1GB of RAM.
It provides internal memory options of 16GB and 32GB only but the memory is expandable with microSD support up to 32GB.
In contrast, the Prime sports a quad core 1.3 GHz Cortex A9 processor with Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset and 12 core ULP GeForce GPU onboard.
Although the Prime packs a quad core processor, the Tegra 3 is expected to be slower than the Exynos and A5X chips.
According to mk News, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 could sport a 1.5GHz quad core Exynos 4412 processor, which could blow away all competition.
The Prime TF700T runs on the latest Android operating system – Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 – integrated with ASUS Waveshare UI.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 will run Android OS 4.0 (dubbed Ice Cream Sandwich).
According to rumors, the tablet has the ability to run and work on two apps simultaneously, which is a never seen feature in tablet history.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 sports a 3.15 megapixel camera with LED flash support and records 1080p videos at 30fps.
On the other hand, the Transformer Prime is expected to feature an 8 megapixel rear facing camera, with no further information available at this time.
The Galaxy Note 10.1, however, falls flat in this department.
Other connectivity features include Bluetooth version 3.0, GPS and Wi Fi with Wi Fi Direct and hotspot functionality.
In contrast, the Asus tablet comes with no support for GSM voice communication, SMS, and MMS as it is not a GSM.
The Samsung Galaxy Note is powered by a Standard Li Ion 7,000 mAh battery.
However, theStylus pen apps, along with LED flash, a faster processor and a superior front facing camera tilt the scales in favour of the new 10.1 inch tablet from Samsung.
The true winner can only be determined once the two tablets hit the market as finished products with the latest Android software onboard.
