ASUS announce Eee Pad Transformer for Australia, $599 for 16GB Wi-Fi model

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, Australian launch tomorrow!

| Mobile Devices News | Posted: May 24, 2011 2:53 am

ASUS has announced local pricing for the upcoming Android-powered Eee Pad Transformer, are you ready for this? It's $200 more than the $399 US-based price, at AU$599. Even with the stronger than ever AU dollar, we're still being ripped when it comes to local pricing. Although, the Transformer looks like a bloody good tablet and I'm sure it will still sell like Eee Hotcakes when it is finally on Australian shelves.

The Transformer will be available tomorrow (!) at retailers including Harvey Norman and JB Hifi, with the 16GB Wi-Fi model setting you back $599 and for $799 you can grab the 32GB Wi-Fo model with optional keyboard and dock included. The keyboard dock accessory has not got a separate pricing yet, but it should receive a pricing of $199.

 

If you haven't seen the Transformer, I suggest you check it out - it is an amazing-looking tablet, relatively cheap (even at AU$599) and if you get the optional keyboard dock, it turns itself into a great portal touchscreen tablet/netbook.
