Also demoed today at the press conference was the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer. Bringing an ultra-versitile option to tablet fans the Transformer will provide both a tablet and notebook experience for the user.

The device will feature a full size QWERTY keyboard with its Mobile Docking Station. The tablet itself is a 10.1-inch device with a 1280x800 capacitive touch screen and will run Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) with ASUS's new MyWave overlay and will feature the company's WaveShare network media sharing system. MyWave looks very slick, and running on Honeycomb, it seemed incredibly responsive.

The device will sport two onboard cameras: one 1.2MP Video Camera on the front, and a 5MP auto-focus camera on the back. Communications and ports include Wireless N, Bluetooth, HDMI, USB and a built in card reader. With its NVIDIA Tegra 2, it is being promoted as "twice the performance while being even thinner than the iPad."

You can pick up a ASUS Transformer for $399-$699 when it ships in April of this year.
