With devices like the Motorola XOOM and Samsung Galaxy Tab stealing their fair share of attention, The success of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer was a bit unexpected. But successful it has been, shipping 300,000 units in June and an additional 400,000 in July. The dual-core Honeycomb tablet wins points for its combination of pricing, specs, and features including a detachable keyboard, the essence of the Transformer.
It should come as little surprise, then, that a sequel is already in the works. Poppa Asus Jonney Shih confirmed as much, going so far as to call the in-development tablet impressive, even at this stage. Without any details to go on, we can only speculate about what to expect and when to expect it. We know one thing: we wouldn’t mind seeing Asus move forward with NVIDIA’s next-gen quad-core Tegra chip at all.
