Production of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is now limited to 10,000 units a month

Still trying to keep up with consumer demand, Asus is doing whatever they can at this point to satisfy the growing appetite of consumers all around with their surprisingly successful Asus Eee Pad Transformer. However, it now appears as though production will be limited to only 10,000 units a month – compared to the 300,000 that was reported to happen previously.
Apparently, the Taiwanese based company is running into issues trying to source the supplies required to manufacture the tablet and keyboard combination. In the near term, we can expect to see only limited quantities of the tablet, but production will increase dramatically in June.
Therefore, you should consider yourself extremely lucky if you happened to scoop up a unit by now. For the rest of us though, we can only drool and envy those who are flaunting the tablet.

It's not surprising that it's a huge success, it's a great value and a good brand!

This tablet would appeal to me if it had Windows on it. It's a beautiful tablet and a great dock to go with it.

the only problem with windows is the battery. since windows OS was developed to work on constant power source

i aint wrong with the thing in my mind: japan is still the leader in technology and almost all chipsets, displays, name it all, that is needed to make our precious gadgets. if i were you, id better buy japanese products as our way to help them recover.

Word on the street is that Apple used part of its $60B surplus and tied up production of key tablet parts to hamstring competition in exactly this way. Considering such a move violates anti-trust laws( even if your name is Jobs) one should ask why they are getting a free ride on illegal moves such as that...
