GRAPEVINE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 2, 2011--
The next generation of Android tablets make their debut this holiday
season and GameStop (NYSE: GME) is providing the first opportunity to
get hands-on with the new quad-core NVIDIA® Tegra®
3 processor. Select stores nationwide will have the ASUS Eee Pad
Transformer Prime, the first tablet to use the new Tegra 3 chip,
available for demo beginning this weekend.
“With increased processing speed and display performance, the Tegra 3
chip allows for even more immersive tablet gaming,” stated GameStop

consumers what it can do.”
The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime is available for pre-order at www.GameStop.com/Tablets

All ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablets purchased at GameStop come
with a hand-picked selection of free games, including Shadowgun from
MADFINGER Games, the Kongregate Arcade app and a digital issue of Game
Informer magazine. To take the tablet gaming experience to the next
