    Is the Prime coming bundled with the keyboard dock @ $500?

    That seems like what they're advertising for some reason. Anyone care to confirm or deny this? Would make the purchase a bit easier.

    The advertised "14.5 battery life" seems hard to belief with just the eeePad alone. If not, that's crazy.

    Well, the Tegra3 chip had been promising super reduced power consumption; I'm hesitant to believe it's THAT much better, but who knows?

    Still, at $500 for a T3 tablet with ICS, all the ports and a good solid build, $500 isn't a bad price. OTOH, with the Kindle Fire coming in, high-end tablets will become that much tougher to sell...

    Highly doubt it. The Prime is stated to be at the $499 price point by itself. Got a link or source???

    The 14.5 hour life is due to the new format of the Tegra 3 Proc. It has a special low power consumption core that is used while in standby/sleep/book reading/... Then when tougher more intensive tasks are required the other full power cores take over.

    I would expect to see the Prime + KB come in around $650.

    I think the 14.5 hours is when it is dock. more or less 500 for the tab alone.

    I don't get it. The TF1+dock = about $550. Why in the world would the TF2 be $500 with the dock?

    maybe it's the missing 1.5 "battery hour" effect.

    This won't happen. Asus made it clear that they won't undervalue the T1 by making the T2 cheaper

    I'd like to know if the keyboard dock I already have will be compatible with the new Prime?
