Asus Eee Pad Transformer: UK Customers Facing Shipping Date Delay

By Posted 15 Apr 2011, 16:39

If you’re one of the many UK residents that are waiting to get their hands on the Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet, then I’m afraid we have some disappointing news for you. It looks like you’ll have to wait a little longer than expected, as the shipping date has now been delayed.

According to a recent article by Stuart Dredge over at crave.cnet.co.uk, Asus previously revealed that the Android 3.0 Honeycomb run device would be available as from April 6th in the UK, but it appears that the initial limited amount of tablet PCs have sold out rather quickly.

This of course means that retailers have unfortunately had to delay their shipping dates until June 1st. Amazon has apparently emailed their customers with a brand new shipping date, which is also displayed on the Asus Eee Pad Transformer’s product page.

However, the much-anticipated tablet is sure to be worth the extra wait. As a reminder, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer – which can be purchased with the additional keyboard dock – is powered by a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and features a 10.1-inch display and dual cameras.

The Transformer will set you back £380 on its own, or £430 with the keyboard dock. Were you hoping to get the Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet soon?

    A prime example of a totally wrecked launch by Asus. Maybe they could learn some lessons from Apple about how NOT to launch a product…. and no, you can't buy the docking bundle – nobody has the keyboard.
    There are some angry ex-customers at Amazon, some cancelling their orders.
    It is very hard to grasp what Asus marketing are playing at!

    I agree with Jack, I'm Italian live in Taiwan, I went to Softex in Taipei is a show of 5 days where they launch the eeepad, they finish all the stock in one day, due I arrived the last day they already sold out, this is why I made first this review without device: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQJvmpDWZM8
    But then Yesterday they ship to me the device and here the real review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbtEPVu1Sts
