Reportedly, Asus is now demanding up to 500,000 touch panels to be delivered every month by its suppliers, which is the main reason for the optimistic shipping estimates. If the rumors turn out to be true, Asus may very well become one of the top players on the tablet market surpassing companies like Motorola and RIM.
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer has been enjoying great popularity so far due to its relatively low price tag and great value-for-money factor. Besides that, the Asus Eee Pad Slider is said to be on its way, and even the MeMO 3D and the PadFone might hit the market eventually, so those rumors might really be on to something.
