ASUS Eee Pad Transformer to cost $400 at Best Buy
A listing for the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer has now shown up at electronics retailer Best Buy. While the device isn't yet available for purchase or even pre-order, and no ship dates are shown, the price for the standard model is set at $400. The device was recently announced for the UK and Taiwan markets, so a US release should be just around the corner.
The Best Buy model has 1GB of RAM and a 16GB drive. Features common to all Transformers include the 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU, 10.1-inch, 1280x800 display and a five-megapixel rear camera and front-facing 1.2-megapixel camera. Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi and an HDMI output are standard. Android 3.0 is preloaded onto the device and will make it one of the first devices with a non-stock take on the OS to ship. [via NetbookNews]
