The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is expected to launch in April, making it the first 10 inch slate computer from Asus. It also happens to be the first tablet from Asus to feature a dual core NVIDIA Tegra processor and a detachable keyboard that allows you to use type on the device as if it were a laptop.

While Asus hasn’t set the official pricing or launch date yet, the Android tablet will likely hit the streets sometime next month for between $399 and $699. And yesterday a computer that looks like it may be the Eee Pad Transformer showed up on the FCC web site in advance of that official launch.

There’s nothing all that interesting in the FCC filing yet, unless you count a picture of the back of the tablet showing where the FCC label will go. But the folks at Notebook Italia noticed that the Eee Pad TF101 model number used in the FCC filings is the same as the model number used for the Transformer on the Asus support and drivers web site.

  1. This is probably one of the best tablets coming. Not only is it a good tablet from everything I’ve seen it’s also a netbook. It will have Android Honeycomb and the Tegra 2 with a dock that “transforms” it into a netbook. Personally, I think this is by far the best way to design a 10″ tablet–give it a nice clamshell that adds double the battery life and protects the screen when traveling and allows it to be as fully functional as any netbook/laptop. Hopefully Asus did the right thing with all the ports–standard USB, HDMI, SD on the tablet and dock!

    1. Yes! I’ve looked at all other tablets and this one shows big promise. I know this will be perfect only if they keep more on the pure android experience and don’t add too much junk apps.
