Asus Eee Pad Transformer

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is one of the best-selling Android tablets thanks to a reasonably low starting price of around $400. Asus also offers an optional keyboard dock accessory which adds a full keyboard, touchpad, and extra battery life to the tablet. But one thing the Transformer currently doesn’t support is 3G mobile broadband… at least not yet.

Last month we saw a listing for an Eee Pad Transformer with 3G show up in Italy. Now Dutch site Tablets Magazine has received a tip that the 3G model will be available in that country in early October.

A 3G tablet with 16GB of storage and now keyboard will sell for about 499 Euros. You’ll have to pay extra if you want the keyboard or 32GB of storage.

The rest of the specs look identical to the WiFi-only tablet: 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, Bluetooth, WiFi, microSD card reader, and front and rear cameras.

There’s no word on if or when the Eee Pad Transformer with 3G will be available in the US.

Interestingly, this isn’t the only new Transformer we’re expecting this fall. It’s also possible that Asus could bring a next-generation version of the tablet with a new processor to market before the end of the year.

  1. I just hope when it arrives in the US it is NOT on AT&T, that will ruin it.

    1. This is what happens when I blog from a small computer — the URL got cut off and I didn’t bother looking at the end. Thanks!
