    If this one turns out to be true, it will be a bit of a surprise. According to some industry intel, Asus' Eee Pad Transformer 2 quad-core follow-up product, could come as early as November 7th. The leak comes from a UK component shop called LambdaTek which actually listed it on their site. The tablet was referred to as model number TF201-1I020A, and is already priced at £537.85 including VAT. It also showed an in-stock date of November 7th.

    Even if you adjust for conversion and different market dynamics, this price is a bit steeper than the $499 that the CEO of ASUS, Jerry Shen, recently indicated. Still, who knows how the pricing will actually break down once it hits North American shores. The specs on this device are pretty beastly:
    • Quad-core Tegra 3 processor from NVIDIA
    • 32GB of storage
    • 1GB of RAM
    • 10.1-inch display
    • Android 3 Honeycomb
    What do you think of this news if it turns out to be accurate?

    Honeycomb? Why wouldn't it have ice cream sandwich? Oh well, sounds great. But what I'm hoping is that you can get the Transformer 1 for around $300 after it comes out. :)
