Asus Transformer Prime is up for pre-order in the US

The world's first Ice Cream Sandwich tablet is nearly ready to part you with your cash

The Asus Transformer Prime has officially hit pre-order status on Amazon's US site, where eager fans can reserve their slice of Tegra 3 goodness for US$500 and US$600 for the 32GB and 64GB models respectively.

The accompanying keyboard dock – which offers an impressive 22 hours of total battery life – can also be pre-ordered, for US$150.

Asus has already flaunted the Transformer Prime's Ice Cream Sandwich capabilities on video and although UK pricing has previously been revealed to be £500, we're hoping to get a more specific release date for January, so stay tuned.
