If you live in the US or Canada and you’ve been waiting to hear about a price and release date for the much-anticipated Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb run Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet, then I’m pleased to say that we finally have the news that you’ve been waiting for.
According to Chris Davies over at slashgear.com, Asus has just confirmed that the Transformer — which also has an optional battery-toting keyboard dock — will be available in both the US and Canada as from April 26th. The 16GB model is priced up at $399, while the 32GB will cost you $499.
The keyboard attachment will be sold separately for $149. Besides offering a QWERTY keyboard, the dock also comes with a 4-in-1 memory card reader, 2 USB 2.0 ports and a battery that offers 8 hours usage, which when combined with the tablet provides up to 16 hours run time.
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 processor and features a 10.1-inch display, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, an HDMI port and a microSD card slot. It also comes with a few Asus apps pre-loaded onto it, including a remote desktop tool.
Although the Transformer launched in the UK earlier this month, the demand soon outstripped the supply and many customers were faced with shipping date delays. Are you thinking of buying the Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet?
