Asus Eee Pad Transformer: Sells out on first day

By Gary Johnson - Apr 26, 2011

Now it won’t have been the first new tablet PC to do it, but the Asus Eee Pad Transformer has sold out on its first day. Earlier this month we had an early impressions review of the smart looking device from Asus that allows you to dock a keyboard and turn it into a netbook style device.

Shane McGlaun of Android Community is reporting that Asus has a site showing where you can get your hands on the device. We told you last week that the tablet will be launching today in North America and Canada, and Asus recently said that stock levels would be low on launch day.

Now most of the sites that are listed as places you can buy the Asus Eee Pad Transformer have already sold out. There are twenty four different retail outlets listed by Asus, which include physical stores and online outlets. These include Amazon, Best, Target, Sears, Office Depot, to name but a few.

To recap the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is a 10.1-inch device which runs Android 3.0, and is powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. You have a full QWERTY keyboard but can use the optional docking station, and battery life is 9.5 hours or 16 hours with the extra keyboard.

If stock levels were already low it’s not surprising the impressive looking device is selling fast, use the link to find the full list of retailers stocking the Asus Eee Pad Transformer,
