Not something that would’ve been expected when it first came rolling onto the scene, a recent report from DigiTimes mentions that shipments of the popular Asus Eee Pad Transformer have moved pass the mark of 400,000 units per month. Undeniably a monumental feat for this Honeycomb flavored tablet, it seems that there is no slowdown being foreseen in its future as anonymous sources at touchscreen display panel suppliers hint that the number is going to increase even more during the third quarter – potentially hovering around the 500,000 units per month mark!
Keeping that in mind, Asus is hopeful about shipping approximately 4 to 5 million tablets across its portfolio during the second half of the year – with possibly 3 million consisting of the Transformer alone. Although some analysts have said that sales are diminishing due to being overstocked in some channels, this new report completely turns it around by showing its continued demand. Either way, there is absolutely no denying that Asus has a hit on their hands.

its the #1 selling Honeycomb tablet for a reason: It doesnt pretend that they can get away with charging the same as for an Apple tablet even though it has comparable hardware, Apple is known to charge a premium for their name and software. Its doing like how PCs got ahead of Apple, it does the same stuff but for a lower price. Hopefully the other tablet makers like Samsung and Motorola gets this through their thick skulls.

I adore the hardware and all the original design with the dock, but it would be more facinating if they could include the support for 3G/4G in it. And the other thing is, it's still not world wide,some part of the world still does not have their Asus Eee Pad Transformer sold in the country yet.
