Asus Eee Pad Transformer costs $620 in the UK, to ship on April 18
Amazon UK has made the 16GB version of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer available for pre-order for $620 (£379.99). Its launch date in Britain is listed as April 18, and you can also buy a docking station along with the tablet - as this dock is actually a keyboard, it turns the Asus Eee Pad Transformer into a full-fledged laptop. The combined price of the tab and the docking station is $702.

It's not known when the tablet will be offered in the States, although it briefly appeared on Best Buy and Newegg - that's, before it was suddenly removed from their sites. Nevertheless, it's interesting to note the Asus Eee Pad Transformer was priced at $399 by these US retailers, which sounds like a bargain for a tablet powered by a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor and Honeycomb.

Not only that, but the Asus Eee Pad Transformer offers a 10.1-inch screen with a 1280 x 800 resolution, two cameras, 1024MB of RAM, 16GB built-in storage and a battery life that's rated at the impressive 16 hours when the keyboard dock is connected to the tab - these are good specs any way you look at them.
