Asus Transformer Prime origami smart cover surfaces

Asus one-ups the iPad's Smart Cover with this foldable friend for the Transformer Prime

The eagerly-awaited Asus Tranformer Prime has yet to get a solid release date, but that hasn't stopped Amazon Germany from listing an interesting looking €40 smart cover for the super-tablet.

At first glance you'd be forgiven for thinking the cover came straight out of Apple's labs, but look closer and you'll see that it can be folded up origami-style to prop up the shiny slate in a number of ways.

It's a clever and stylish solution and an accessory that we hope to pick up once the Transformer Prime goes on sale – if Apple's lawyers don't stick their oar in, that is.
