Hasbro is suing Asus for infringing on its intellectual property with the Transformer Prime, which it believes is similar enough to the name of the Autobot leader – Optimus Prime – to cause confusion.
We can't really see anyone mixing up a gigantic automaton from Cybertron and an Android tablet – but if Hasbro wins the case we could see a name change in the pipeline for the Tegra 3-powered slate.
If the next Michael Bay Transformers flick sees a gargantuan tablet saving Rosie Huntington-Whitely from peril however, then we'll know that Hasbro definitely has a valid point...
