While the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich have taken center stage over the past few weeks, an equally exciting device has largely been kept quiet. Until now.

The ASUS EeePad Transformer 2 will be the first quad-core Android device on the market, featuring NVIDIA’s next-generation Tegra 3 processor. If you’ve not been following our coverage of Tegra 3/Kal-El, you can check out the promo video of Tegra 3, read about their battery-life-saving 5th core (which I’ve lovingly dubbed “Ninjacore”), and see the GPU in 4 minutes of video glory.

ASUS chairment Jonney Shih will be speaking at AsiaD, the Asia expansion of the popular D: All things Digital conference in Hong Kong. Though details of what Mr. Shih will talk about are not available, ASUS may choose AsiaD as the venue to launch the Transformer 2, which should be hitting US shelves sometime in November (perhaps as early as November 7, though we think it’ll be 1-2 weeks later).

In the meantime, ASUS has released a short teaser video for the upcoming tablet, which you can view in its entirety below. The timing of the teaser video suggests that the announcement may be imminent, so we’ll keep ourselves tuned into the AsiaD conference and will provide you with more information as it becomes available.

Several of our staffers are excited to see just how powerful the first Tegra3 tablet will be. Who out there is excited about the Transformer 2?
