    Asus says the battery life of the Prime (tablet only) is 12 hours - the same as the iPad 2.

    Is this with the screen turned down to a minimum and no WiFi or Bluetooth?

    How does the battery life compare to the iPad 2 when both have the same settings? (screen brightness, Wifi, etc.)

    They are not out in the wild yet.... NewEgg has pushed their in stock date to the 27th.... Tiger *where I ordered my 64gb* says the 19th... so crossing fingers and hoping for a slightly early Christmas gift from work. :)

    Oh wow, I hadn't heard about newegg (I know Amazon customers are now certified insane). Don't be shy about starting a thread once you get yours!

    I don't think they are. I was hoping someone would have already done some testing on the battery claims by now.

    Not sure if you've seen this review, but it's pretty informative:

    Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime review | The Verge

    It also includes some decent battery testing:

    Had an iPad 2 and the battery needed charging every day (I got rid of this iPad 2 to get my TF101).

    My TF101 only needs charging every second day although I must state here that I use an app called Auto Airplane that shuts down my wifi between set "night" hours of my choice.

    My Bluetooth is only on when I am tethered to my phone or am using my Microsoft Mouse.
