Asus Eee Pad Transformer makes a brief catwalk for $399 on Best Buy and Newegg
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer might be the Trojan Horse of the company on its way to take on a sizable chunk of the Android tablet market. It appeared briefly, and was subsequently pulled out on two retailers' websites - Best Buy and Newegg, at both places for the very decent price of $399.

For that kind of money you get a 10" tablet screen with 1280x800 pixels of resolution, 5MP rear camera, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory, which is not a bad deal at all, considering the sharp-looking tablet comes with Android 3.0 Honeycomb. The Eee Pad Transformer was a member of the tablet quartet Asus announced at the CES show this year.

The keyboard dock will apparently run you an extra $149, and you gain a chiclet-style keyboard plus and two USB ports. We already wrote that together with the extended battery on the dock the Asus Eee Pad Transformer runs a cool 16 hours unchained from cables, which sweetens up the pot even further.
