Now, that's what we call good pricing.
ASUS is one of the few who have managed to undercut Apple and offer a powerful 10-inch tablet
for less than the price of the iPad 2. Add to that
the raw power of NVIDIA Tegra 2 powering Android 3.0 Honeycomb and
you have plenty of reasons to get excited about the ASUS Eee Pad
Transformer. The tablet was confirmed for release on April 26th in North America with a price tag of $399 for the 16GB version and
$499 for the 32GB model. In addition, you can purchase a keyboard
dock which doubles as charging station and comes equipped with two
USB 2.0 ports, a 4-in-1 card reader and improved sound all for $150. The dock adds an amazing 8 hours of battery life so you can squeeze up to 16 hours of your tablet counting the slate's own battery capacity.
The Transformer might not have the slim
profile of neither the iPad nor the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tabs, but
it's nevertheless well-designed with a solid metal finish. Finally,
it comes with an ISP screen with resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels,
matching the resolution of recent Honeycomb tablets. For a limited
time you can actually win two Transformers by sending a tweet
including @ASUS and #EeePadTransformer or liking the official ASUS
Facebook page. Is that enough to tip the scales in favor of the Transformer for you? Let us know in the comments below.
