Asus has issued a press release announcing that its Eee Pad Transformer, which went on sale on April 6, is now completely sold out in the UK.
The press release says: “initial demand for the Eee Pad Transformer has been far beyond our expectations. Please accept our sincere apologies for the difficulties regarding stock availability with our retail partners.”
The Taiwanese manufacturer explains that “additional testing procedures” have delayed shipments, however more units are expected at the end of April or beginning of May.
Asus reiterated its love for the UK, saying: “The UK is the global launch partner and will continue to see the largest volumes of stock globally.” Reading between the lines, that could mean a delay for the Asus Eee Pad Transformer's US launch.
If you’ll permit me to be a selfish bar steward for a moment, it’s about time we got some preferential treatment. Thanks, Asus!
P.S. We'll be featuring the Asus Eee Pad in a review soon.
