As expected the price of the Asus Eee Pad TF101 Transformer has been falling steadily over the last few weeks following its launch in the UK at the beginning of April.

Ebuyer is selling the tablet (via Ebay) for a mere £359.99 including postage, £20 less than the recommended selling price. The tablet has been a roaring success since its launch with the tablet beating the competition at Amazon and other online retailers.

The keyboard-equipped Eee Pad is currently ranked at number two and the non-keyboard at number four in Amazon's best selling tablet list, far ahead of the Motorola XOOM, the HTC Flyer or the RIM Blackberry Playbook.

The tablet comes with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 pixel IPS capacitive touchscreen, an Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC clocked at 1GHz, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage expandable to 48GB, a 1.2-megapixel front facing camera and a 5-megapixel rear one, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth (but no 3G), up to eight hours battery life, a mini HDMI but no USB ports.

The tablet originally came with Android 3.0 Honeycomb but has since been upgraded to Android 3.1 and brings many improvements like a new refined user UI, connectivity for USB accessories, more robust Wi-Fi networking, an updated set of standard apps and more.
