    Just pre-ordered a 16GB from J&R. Hopefully, that was a good choice. :)

    Hmmmm... that would be cool. I guess that would lock them into a specific size and shape, but it would be nice for the consumer.

    Where did you hear about this? This is the first I've heard it.

    On the Anandtech review they mention it. They heard this straight from Asus. Supposedly that's why the Transformer is a little bit longer than other tablets, so it will fit in the dock perfectly.

    Okay, after all the reading and other videos that's the only one that has mentioned it.

    That's pretty nice! I love when companies future proof their hardware. It shows they stand behind it and are more likely to update it for a long time.

    Report: Asus Limited To Only 10k Transformer Tablets Per Month Due To Component Shortage

    We hear by way of our good friend Sascha Pallenberg that a component shortage is to blame for the low initial volumes of the Asus Transformer. Apparently Asus is running well below of its capacity and only outing about 10k units per month, rather than 300k. The shortage is reportedly expected to remain until mid-June. No word on exactly which component is to blame here, but it doesn’t really matter as the damage has been done. The Transformer is just the latest sob story for Android fanboys everywhere.
