In a move that will certainly upset a number of early adopters, ASUS has announced the TF700T, an upgraded version of the recently launched Transformer Prime Android tablet that includes a 1080p display and improved GPS and Wi-Fi performance.

The new TF700T swaps out the 10.1-inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display for a much more pixel-dense 1920 x 1200 pixel unit. It still features the same SuperIPS+ technology that the older display had, so colors and viewing angles should be just as excellent.

Also improved with the TF700T are GPS and Wi-Fi performance, a sore spot with the Transformer Prime that was released in December. ASUS says it redesigned the back cover of the tablet to improve radio reception. The rest of the components are the same as the original Transformer Prime, including the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and compatibility with the keyboard dock.

ASUS says that the TF700T will ship with Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich when it is available in North America in Q2 2012. The 32GB version is expected to cost $599, while the 64GB edition will command $699. [via The Verge]
