Asus has confirmed that its Eee Pad Transformer Android tablet will launch on April 26th. For a mere price of $399, you can own a Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablet. This is for the 16GB version but the 32GB version will run you only $499. The optional keyboard will set you back another $150. However when you consider that the WiFi Motorola Xoom is $599, you can get the Eee Pad Transformer 16GB tablet with the optional keyboard for less than a Xoom.
So what specs will the Eee Pad have?
10.1-inch 1280×800 IPS display
16/32GB solid state drive
Dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
1GB of RAM
"Up to" 9.5 hours of battery life
Android 3.0 (Honeycomb)
The specs sound like every other Android 3.0 tablet. But what means this unique is the optional keyboard that transforms the tablet into a "netbook." At this point, Android tablets need to differentiate themselves in this market. Unfortunately, Android tablets are becoming a commodity.
