After having looked at this lovely new Android tablet in person yesterday, it connecting nicely to its keyboard bottom and hosting a nearly final build of Android 3.0 Honeycomb, we’re quite excited to see it popping on on Best Buy for a mere $400. One of the contention points for recent Android tablet announcements has indeed been the price, prices inevitably compared to Apple’s $500 wifi-only iPad trumping most of the competition, but here we’ve got a possible price competitor!
This tablet is still not available for pre-order yet, and there appears to be no Best Buy release date, but “coming soon” might be encouraging enough to wait by our screens clicking reload. Is it for you? Here’s some specs for if you’re unaware: 10.1″ IPS display sizing up at 1280 x 800 pixel resolution covered with Gorilla Glass. Inside you’ll find a fabulous NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB flash storage.
Additionally, there’s a 1.2-megapixel webcam on the front, 2x USB 2.0 along the sides, Bluetooth 2.1 inside, and it’ll be connecting along 802.11 b/g/n Wifi. This unit weighs 2.2-lbs and has a thickness of .5-inches. Feel free to take a closer look with us in our ASUS Eee Pad Transformer first-impressions video and photo gallery. Then of course get the rest of the prices and release dates from our price and date guide.
