Transformer Prime gets origami inspired iPad-like smart cover

While we still don’t know exactly when Asus will let us get our hands on the Tegra 3 quad-core Transformer Prime, (via Android Police) just spotted an iPad-like “Smart Cover” belonging to the device on Amazon’s German site. While we don’t learn much from the Amazon listing, it’s clear from the images the accessory’s design is largely inspired by that of Apple’s iPad 2’s smart covers. Of course the notable twist being a more intricate origami-style folding system allowing you to prop up the device in various viewing modes. Some are saying it will connect magnetically like Apple’s smart covers, although we’ll have to wait to get our hands on it to see how it stacks up.

It’s available for pre-order now for EUR 39.99, however we still don’t know when it or the Transformer Prime will end up shipping. As of latest reports, we expect to see it sometime in December. More images after the break, if you’re interested.
