I started putting this accessory list together in August when I thought that I would have my PRIME in October

DISCLAIMER: Some of the items listed below (case, screen protector, etc.) are for the Eee Pad Transformer TF101. They are here to give you an idea for something you may not have know about. The manufactures have NOT made a PRIME TF201 version yet. I will update the list with TF201 product when it becomes available.

I am aware of three CAR chargers that will work for the PRIME

Wow, great job Done, a very complete list of accessories.
One thing though, in the case section you mentioned the PRIME is a little BIGGER than the Transformer??
really? From the picture that I've seen its a little taller but not as wide.

For stylus you should add the Adonit Jot. From my looking around on XDA it seems to be the unequivocal best of all styli.

Correct Why pay for a 1.4 GHZ Quad Core CPU and put in a Class 2 SD card to slow everything down?
