Was there any doubt that ASUS was leading the pack in tablet shipments in the US? After all, the Eee Pad Transformer is the best-priced Honeycomb tablet and is just as good as any of them out there. ASUS generated tons of buzz around the tablet after announcing its keyboard dock and a very attractive starting price. Since its launch, it has been the hardest tablet to find in stores but ASUS has since ramped up production and is looking to get things balanced by July.
Furthermore, DigiTimes has heard that ASUS is certainly working on a sequel to the Transformer. We’ve heard this rumor before, but it’s nice to see corroboration. This sequel, so to speak, is rumored to have Tegra 3 inside. That belief lines up perfectly with NVIDIA’s claim that Tegra 3 tablets will be here sometime in the second half of 2011, though we can’t imagine summer will hold any surprises for us. Earlier, ASUS was also rumored to be working on an Android-based netbook. [DigiTimes]
