Asus EEE Pad Transformer launched in the UK – from £379

If you fancy an Android tablet that stands out a little from the monolithic army of black slabs, perhaps the EEE Pad Transformer might be the one for you.

UK retailer Comet is stocking the thing right now, with an asking price of £379.99 attached to it. For a 10.1″ Tegra 2 powered Android 3.0 tablet with Flash Player onboard that’s not a bad price – although the docking QWERTY keyboard part is not yet on sale.

    It is listed on Amazon with the keyboard for £429.99 and with out for £379.99 which makes the keyboard £50 which imo isn’t to bad for a full query keyboard that adds an extra 8 hours battery life.

    Would like to see it before I buy it but this one has me tempted… lets see what HTC pull out the bag tomorrow!

      I’ll have £5 on HTC revealing a 10.1″ tablet running Android 2.1 for about £1200.

    I played with this tablet at Comet’s just yesterday. it was very cool, but not as responsive as I would have liked. I jumped on the web browser and got fed up typing and the Honeycomb keyboard isn’t all its cracked up to be. I do have to say though that I have been using the SWYPE keyboard on my HTC Desire for months and months and am not used to tapping again.
    It was a huge improvement to running 2.2 on a tablet (looking at you Samsung – please offer a 3.0 uprgade for those who bought the Galaxy Tab). I’m sure with some practice I’d get teh hang of it. Anyone know if Honeycomb supports SWYPE? By the way, if you haven’t tried SWYPE I highly recommend it. once you learn how to use it you wont want to go back to tapping either.
