Sold out: Asus Eee Pad Transformer
Apparently today, a new tablet went on sale at Best Buy, and it sold out very quickly, according to Android Police. It's called the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, and it's supposedly an iPad competitor for $399 -- or $100 less than the entry-level iPad 2.
Asus is not flooding the U.S. market with these yet, opting instead for a bigger role out in the U.K., according to Android Police. If you have been waiting out on the iPad because you're not impressed with its specs, this Android device -- which runs the Android Honeycomb software version -- has some hardware that the iPad lacks, such as two USB ports and a media card reader. It also hooks up to a keyboard. Clearly, this is meant as another option for a netbook.
