ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Available April 26th

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
  • HDMI out
  • "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.
