over at SlashGear went on a pretty neat mission today to take a look at ASUS' newest contribution to our ever-expanding world of exciting tech with the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer. What we're looking at here is a brand spanking new Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet that can also slip into a keyboard to become what appears at first to be a fully functional laptop.

has launched in-app billing on the Android Market, allowing developers to offer extra levels in their games, additional services and virtual goods in their apps. The system will also enable try-and-buy, where apps can be offered free to trial and then activated in full without demanding a whole new download. As you'd expect, Google has worked with a few software vendors in advance to give a demonstration of how the in-app billing system works. Tap Tap Revenge, Comics, Gun Bros, Deer Hunter Challenge HD, WSOP3 and Dungeon Defenders: FW Deluxe have all been updated. Full details for developers are here, but the key points are that Google still takes a 30-percent cut of every transaction - just as it already does for basic app purchases - and that, since it uses no special APIs, it shouldn't require too much reworking of code.
