    The TF300 is out. This has the same processor, but slightly underclocked (1.2 instead of 1.3 GHz if I recall) and slightly less battery life. The TF300 is basically a TF101 replacement. It is also a hair thicker than the Prime, but it is an awesome tablet. It has a plastic back instead of metal so it is no WiFi or GPS issues.

    In the states you can pick up a 32 GB one for $399. It is probably also £399 in the UK, but most are being sold as kits with the keyboard. I was looking for another chap who was interested in just the tablet and to ship it from BHPhoto in New York to the UK it ended up being about £359 including import taxes and 3-5 day shipping because of the exchange rate. There is also a 16 GB version, but it is $379 USD. For the $20, I would get the bigger one.

    Beyond that, the TF700 is due out next which will be a Tegra3 1.6 GHz quad core and 1080p screen (1920x1200 actually). No word on release date yet, and it is rumored to be $599 USD when released for the 32 GB version.

    Both of those look like they will be really nice tablets but if you're going to wait anyway you might want to look at the Transformer 700T. The specs are really sweet.
