    The new ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is already available in Europe, and supposedly, it has already been rooted too. The full method hasn't been posted because it is still rough and has no backup method, but that should be coming as soon as it hits the US. Android hackers @PauOBrien and @BumbleDroid were the brains behind the hack. You can check out more details at their Twitter posts below.

    I doubt rooting and Android device isn't as hard as an Apple device. Especially one from Asus.

    If this retails for $400, first I am going to totally s#@*. Then I'm going to get out my credit card and buy 3 of them. I can't afford 3. I don't need 3. But that price is just too juicy.

    Pretty much seals the deal for me that this is the tablet to get. I'll still have to play with it, and the XOOM is tempting with LTE but lack of physical keyboard is a killer for me (although I can't imagine good 3rd party BT devices aren't around the corner, but I hear the IPad ones don't work so great, or one reviewer at least said the trackpad is kind of useless).
