I was never one for crafty things. My clumsy hands struggled to make a paper aeroplane, let alone any fancy paper swans or card fortune telling devices. Asus, on the other hand, must have been paying special attention to Blue Peter all these years, as their latest tablet cover takes its cues from the ancient art of origami.
Headed to the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, the cover attaches to the side of the tablet in much the same way that the Apple Smart Cover does, clicking into place where the tablet’s keyboard dock also goes.
Once on, the cover doesn’t only just protect the device’s screen, but also folds at a number of joints to prop the slate up at angles suited for typing, and a higher angle for movie watching.
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is headed to stores in January, priced £499 with a bundled keyboard dock. The Android slate packs a Tegra 3 processor, and supports 1080p video playback.
