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.

RE: Asus is good at rushing half-baked crap out the door

Most ignorant post ever....
Asus is an OEM that's been in the business just as long as some of these other guys. Remain top tier in reliability charts. In addition, they had to sell off their manufacturing division, due to a conflict of intrest... WHY?
Because they make MB for other OEMs, iphones, PS3.... shall I go on?
They have one of the best tablets on the market period.
