Official Asus Eee Transformer Honeycomb Tablet Specs, Price & Release

With the tablet war continually hotting up, its a job to know which device to purchase for your money. Do you stick with perhaps Apple and its new iPad 2 or try out something different such as the Motorola Xoom, BlackBerry PlayBook, HTC Flyer or even the Asus Eee Transformer, and its this very device that we wanted to bring you updated news on. For today, we can now give you its official specs, price and release date.

To be fair, when you look at what Asus has to offer in terms of the above, it really isn’t getting the attention that it quite rightly deserves. Although the Eee was a device we looked at briefly at the beginning of the year, it certainly is a stiff contender against the other makes. Just a few days ago, we gave you a comparison between the iPad 2 and the Eee in terms of battery, and the Asus won hands down.

So what has this little number got in store for you then? Well, what makes this unique to the others first and foremost, is that it can be converted into a notebook when docked into the keyboard, which in turn will up the battery’s potential life to a good solid 16 hours. In relation to specs as Pocketlint reported, the 10.1-inch tab which includes the Corning Gorilla Glass keeping the screen scratch-free, will be running with Android’s Honeycomb 3.0 OS, NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, HDMI port, 2 cameras the first being the 1.2 megapixel front and 5 megapixel rear, 3D stereo SRS sound, 16GB or 32GB storage, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS and 3G connectivity as an alternative and so on.

In terms of price, the Eee will be retailing for £379 for the smaller 16GB model and £429 for the 32GB, with an additional £50 for the keyboard dock, with a release date of the 6th April, although pre-orders are now being taken at Ebuyer and Amazon.

What are your thoughts on the new Eee Transformer? Would you be willing to pay the above prices for something a little different?

    Amazon shows the release date as April 18'th, and the picture is not that of the transformer above..
