Asus Eee Pad Transformer said to be coming for $399 by the end of April
This is in accordance with a previous information we reported - that Best Buy and Newegg briefly listed the Asus tab for the same price, only to remove it from their sites a few hours later. Now, citing an Asus contact, tech-blogger Joanna Stern says the 16GB Wi-Fi version of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is to be available stateside by the end of April.
This is great news as there is not much difference spec-wise (and these are some really, really good specs) between this tab, the Acer ICONIA TAB A500 and the Motorola XOOM, as they all pack a 10.1-inch screen with 800 x 1280 resolution, 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, 1024MB of RAM, two cameras and the tablet-optimized Android 3.0. There is a difference in the price of these devices though, as the Acer ICONIA TAB A500 costs $500 for the 16GB Wi-Fi version, while the better known Motorola XOOM is priced at $599 for the 32GB Wi-Fi version.
The amount of money it costs aside, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer has one (potential) advantage over its rivals - you can buy a $149 keyboard dock designed for the tab, which not only turns your Asus Eee Pad Transformer into something that closely resembles a laptop, but also extends its battery life to the impressive 16 hours. Sweet.
