Friday saw the pre-order launch of the Eee Pad Transformer in Taiwan. What we missed was the ticking UK launch counter on the English ASUS Eee Facebook page.
Right now, the UK Eee Pad Transformer launch counter has just less than 4 days left. In another wall message, ASUS is also announcing a separate launch campaign in 'the following days' for the US as well. With worldwide availability and warranty, the Eee Pad Transformer is hitting the market much like any other personal computing product. This is actually a first for Android tablets, as most other major tablets tend to launch with mobile carrier exclusivity and a mobile data service contract. As such, it is a major milestone for Android tablets emerging as the evolutionary replacement for personal computers.
