    [Rumor] Quad-Core Asus Eee Pad Transformer 2 May Launch November 7th


    If this one turns out to be true, it will be a bit of a surprise. According to some industry intel, Asus' Eee Pad Transformer 2 quad-core follow-up product, could come as early as November 7th. The leak comes from a UK component shop called LambdaTek which actually listed it on their site. The tablet was referred to as model number TF201-1I020A, and is already priced at 537.85 including VAT. It also showed an in-stock date of November 7th.

    Even if you adjust for conversion and different market dynamics, this price is a bit steeper than the $499 that the CEO of ASUS, Jerry Shen, recently indicated. Still, who knows how the pricing will actually break down once it hits North American shores. The specs on this device are pretty beastly:
    • Quad-core Tegra 3 processor from NVIDIA
    • 32GB of storage
    • 1GB of RAM
    • 10.1-inch display
    • Android 3 Honeycomb

    What do you think of this news if it turns out to be accurate?

    Did you snag the Newegg tablet+dock/keyboard deal? It stings a little to see the quad core, but other than 1080p and maybe some games, I'm not sure the quad core offers more than bragging rights for a while. Hopefully it *will* be $800 -- at least for early adopters.

    It looks like a nice tablet ... but I think I would rather buy 5 Kindle Fire Tablets for the money.

    I think these tablet manufacturers will find that they are going to struggle without the "fruit" branding, a massive content delivery structure like Amazon or just amazing specs for a dirt cheap price.

    Agreed, Sammy most definitely needs fruit branding! Pineapple anyone? watermelon would be legit too! xD

    I would think someone will figure out how you can make a lapdock yourself for $100-150, some time and elbow grease. I mean, the guts and software are pretty much all on the phone.

    And I'd love to see one of these where your phone docks in such a manner that it becomes the touchpad. Perhaps a bit too large, but an extended battery and perhaps a nice SSD, maybe put some really nice speakers in?
