    There seems to be a lot of Android Tablet news out today. ASUSTek's website for their Eee Pad Transformer went live recently. Here are the full specs on the intriguing device:
    • NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2 1.0GHz dual-core CPU for excellent multitasking & 1080p video playback
    • Android 3.0 Honeycomb O.S. with Adobe® Flash® 10.2 support*2
    • Full QWERTY keyboard, touchpad input with Polaris® Office® for mobile productivity
    • 16*1 hours long battery life for all day computing with docking station
    • Brilliant IPS panel with ultra-wide 178⁰ viewing angle made from scratch resistant and super tough glass
    • One year of Unlimited ASUS WebStorage, two USB ports, SD and Micro SD card readers for easy sharing & storage expendability
    • 3D stereo with max bass response with SRS premium sound
    Also, not necessarily to coincide with the new website, Best Buy has an ad for the device that pokes a bit of fun at the Apple iPads. The ad cleverly suggests that you could get your iPad to be just like the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer with some duct tape. It'll be interesting to see how the device actually stacks up to the competition when it is finally released.

    Love that Best Buy has the balls to make a little fun at the iPad 2 since they are amongst the few to sell them outside of Apple itself. Pretty good comparison in my (not so humble) opinion.

    Looks like BB has pulled this ad. Not surprised, and I still think it was a ballsy move.
