Asus Eee Pad Transformer Pre-orders Cancelled

We told you last month that the new Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet PC sold out on its first day of being released. It still doesn’t look like that stock levels have improved, with the news that some Asus Eee Pad Transformer pre-orders are being cancelled.

James Cushing from is reporting that the most popular Android tablet PC so far, is selling out everywhere. Also retailer Target have been emailing customers who have the device on pre-order and cancelling them. In the message they say the product is not currently available from any of their sources,

Currently the device is still showing on the company’s website, but showing out of stock, and also the link to purchase the unit has gone. Asus themselves had previously stated they were suffering from a bottleneck which was causing shortages in production.

Originally they wanted to produce 300,000 units per month, but so far only achieved 10,000 per month due to shortages in components. With the amount of other Android devices on their way to market, and problems ongoing in Japan component shortages are not likely to improve in the short term.
