Eee Pad Transformer tablet, denying that component shortages have limited production to just 10,000 units per month. The company's Taiwanese spokesperson, David Chang, told Netbook News that in fact ASUS is on course to make 100,000 of the coveted slates this month, and over 200,000 in June. "We will see a significant alleviation in the month of June" Chang confirmed, explaining that "the current demand surpasses our expectations by far." ASUS had set sales targets of 300,000 units in the whole of Q2 2011, but a combination of strong appeal amid a limited Honeycomb market, iPad 2 shortages and other factors has seen far more would-be buyers than that. "If the demand continues to increase substantially then we will have to continue to ramp up production in order to fulfill our customers’ demand" Chang concluded, which hopefully means that the shelves will soon be overflowing with Transformers.

Some may have figured that Asus was just taking it slow with their tablet to see what the demand was and perhaps to keep the demand for the tablet up.
causing quite a stir, what with running Honeycomb, sporting a dual core, and having a great build quality - having the Asus A500 on hand right this moment we can say right now that a more fashionable cousin would be right up our alley, and the Transformer fits that bill like no other. Target, here we come!
our earlier report that users can root the Iconia (with a step by step guide included), the time is ripe to ask the question ... why wait?
Motorola Xoom has been a popular little device. Some new information looks to show that Motorola might be planning a Keyboard Folio case similar to the portfolio case they offer now, but with a bluetooth or USB Keyboard included. This would probably be a good idea considering the Asus Transformer has one and it has been a pretty big hit so far.
available in North America. I also mentioned that supplies were short and that many locations were already out of stock on the device. If you want one you need to go look right now or you will miss out until Asus can make more stock. Asus had noted that the UK would be its focus at launch in the past so low stock in the US isn't really a surprise.

The 32GB version will be $499, while the keyboard dock will be a further $149. The latter has an integrated battery that, together with the Eee Pad's own battery, is good for up to 16hrs of continuous use. Otherwise there's the usual blend of Tegra 2, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, twin cameras and HDMI connectivity. The Eee Pad Transformer does distinguish itself with a brilliant IPS display, with excellent viewing angles. [vms 1f9b250ba689db6a0222] [via SlashGear]
