Asus Eee Pad Transformer Sold Out Limited to Only 10K units per month
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer was released one week ago and was sold out within minutes understandably so with a lower price point than the competition and having specs just as good as the competition.
The Asus Transformer does just that transforms from a laptop to a tablet and has a 1ghz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core proccesor. Android 3.0 Honeycomb O.S. with Adobe® Flash® 10.2 support. Full QWERTY keyboard, touchpad input with Polaris® Office® for mobile productivity. Brilliant IPS panel with ultra-wide 178⁰ viewing angle made from scratch resistant and super tough glass. One year of Unlimited ASUS WebStorage, two USB ports, SD and Micro SD card readers for easy sharing & storage expendability. 3D stereo with max bass response with SRS premium sound. It uses the Corning Gorilla Glass technology to protect it from scrapes, scratches, and drops. Supports up to 10-finger multi-touch support against its 1,280-by-800 resolution screen and a unique (optional) laptop dock that extends battery life. 16 hours long battery life for all day computing with.
Apparently the reason behind the low volume of Asus Eee Pad is component shortages, not sure what component is holding up the production but it is said that the same shortage is causing Asus to run below capacity and are reportedly only able to make/ship 10,000 units per month rather than the original expectation of 300,000. This shortage is expected to be in effect to mid-June.
