Rumour Mill – ASUS Eee Pad Transformer production limited

Time to don your hunting gear – this tablet will prove tricky to find in the wild

If you’re in the market for an Eee Pad Transformer then be prepared for a search. Rumour has it that ASUS is only managing to churn out 10,000 of the transforming tablets a month, which is a massive chunk less than the 300,000 that the Taiwanese electronic company were hoping to produce.

The reasons for this appear to be that there are simply not enough parts available, which could be due to the recent Japanese earthquake. Luckily production is said to slip up a gear in June, so you can wait until then, search desperately for one now, or find the AllSpark cube and birth a whole host of transforming gadgets to do your bidding. Good luck.
