According to Digitimes, Asus is eyeing an October release for the sequel to its massively successful Eee Pad Transformer. Incidentally, Asus claims that the original is the biggest selling tablet behind the iPad.
In order to avoid the supply shortages that plagued the first Eee Pad Transformer, Asus has reportedly signed up a second supplier in Taiwan to pump out units.
Shipments are expected to begin in the middle of Q3, with volumes increasing dramatically towards the end of September. Yep, Asus will be well prepared for launch this time around.
A whopping 400,000 Eee Pad Transformers were reportedly sold in Q2, and Asus hopes to punt a further million in Q3.
It’s fairly quiet on the specs front, but there are whispers of a quad-core Kal-el processor, with Ice Cream Sandwich doing the OS honours.
It’s not clear at this early stage if the keyboard for the original Eee Pad Transformer will be compatible with its successor.
