Android-powered device will support a detachable keyboard
some early glimpses
of ASUS' Eee Pad tablets back in December, which were then followed up by an
official unveiling of four devices at CES
one of those devices, the ASUS Transformer, is seeing the light of day -- ahead of schedule, no less.
reports that the Transformer will be released in Taiwan March 25, when pre-orders will begin at 8 a.m.
The 10.1-inch, Android-powered tablet sports a Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB DDR2,
and will come in both 16GB and 32GB storage capacities. What sets it apart from other tablets, though, is the detachable keyboard.
ASUS will demonstrate how the keyboard will work with Android's Honeycomb OS on Friday. Meanwhile, the price has been figured at somewhere between $400 and $700.
The Phonehouse in Spain
is reportedly listing the Tranformer at
399€, or approximately $560, without the keyboard.

I'm betting it will be $400 for the 512MB RAM/16GB and no keyboard version. Adding all the bells/whistles will be closer to $700.
Been holding off on all other pads for the ASUS versions.

I can tell you that the 32GB should be around 499 - 550

The dock also acts as a secondary battery.. giving another 8hrs of battery life.
