ASUS ramping up production for the Transformer

For those that can't get a hold of the Transformer here is some good news.

Quote:
... We got a concrete response of an expected 100,000 units in May and 200,000+ units to be hitting the streets in June.

...

...Rumors around component shortage causing the tablet to be in short supply we not confirmed. ASUS simply didn’t expect such high demand for the 10 inch tablet with docking station, so the shortage is actually being caused by the high demand. Chang stated that “It really depends on the demand. The current demand surpasses our expectations by far.” So they are ramping up volumes next month, and looking at their projections for Q2 they are on track to achieve and surpass current sales goals of 300,000.

I'm patiently waiting for my local retail outlets to replenish their ever so short supply-on-hand.

A couple of years back, I bought the ASUS eee PC 1000H netbook when it first appeared and other than the location of the shortened right-shift key, I've been quite impressed with ASUS products! (I've used their motherboards for 10+ years!!!)

I do see that this time around their dock keyboard for the Transformer has "corrected" that right-shift key issue (location is now on the left of the up arrow key )

Thanks, =X=, for helping me plan the spending of my tax refund so wisely...

p.s. I bought one now, but it might be defective. A certain section of screen is not responsive to touch :

I've posted about it to the xda-developers.com forums here. I may end up returning it...

p.p.s. I'm back in business!!!!! My replacement TF arrived without these issues; it's a keeper!!!!!!!

This is good news. I'm looking forward to finally being able to play with one.
