Asus Eee Pad Transformer Goes on Sale for $399, Sells Out Immediately

What do you get when you combine a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 10.1-inch display, 16GB of storage, and a $399.99 price tag? Call that bad boy the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, which is now available for purchase via Best Buy. The Honeycomb tablet manages to grab one of the lowest price points we have seen on a device that doesn’t skimp on the hardware, and as such seems to already be backordered. The order page says units will ship in “1-2 weeks.”

This mirrors the Tranformer’s success in the UK where its first three production runs have already sold out. Either Asus didn’t anticipate high demand and lowballed their stock, or the Eee Pad Transformer is the perfect example of what can happen when you mix powerful hardware, Android Honeycomb, and the right price.
