Amazon Releases ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, Sells Out in a Matter of Minutes
If you’ve been excited about the launch of the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer…well, you apparently weren’t the only one, and we hope you’ve already grabbed yours. Amazon made the Transformer available for sale in the US early this morning…and was sold out within just a few minutes. Likewise, Target lists it as “unavailable” and BestBuy.com already has it showing up as “backordered.” We don’t know how many were made available for this first-round release, but apparently it was not enough to meet the demand for the product.
Honestly, this isn’t that surprising, given that it’s basically a Honeycomb tablet that docks onto a keyboard to make a nice laptop-like device when you want that experience. It’s a very cool device concept, and it’s priced at a VERY competitive $399. That is, if you can find one.
Stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted.
