First, ASUS hints at a $400 price point for the Eee Transformer Pad that could pretty well pull the rug from under the likes of Motorola Xoom and iPad 2 and now, it’s gone and released the source code of its yet to release tablet – the first look see into a Honeycomb tab.
ASUS is not pulling any punches to market their Eee Pad Transformer. The tab’s definitely not lacking in specs – Honeycomb OS, Tegra 2 dual core processor, 10.1″ LED WXGA(1280×800) Screen with Gorilla glass, front and back camera, HD video playback, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, unlimited ASUS Webstorage, Flash support, mini HDMI, etc. Plus it has the very nice keyboard dock that adds 7 hours to the tab’s battery life and includes a microSD card reader.
ASUS has even got the support page up for the Eee Pad Transformer ahead of schedule. Click on the Download tab here, select Android as the OS, and there you have it. For all of you who love to play with kernel code, ASUS gives you the opportunity to get a head start.
The Eee Pad Transformer is slated for a mid-April release in the US and frankly, we can’t wait to get our hands on this baby.
