Asus iPad 2 Competitor In Stock From £361

Comet has the Eee Pad Transformer Android tablet in stock again for as little as £361, down from £380; you will have to use the code WILL5 at the checkout to get the £19 discount.

Supplies of the tablet appeared to be severely restricted with the official release dates having been postponed at least once and Amazon still sticking to a June release date.

The model on sale comes without keyboard and 3G feature. It does however have a glorious 10.1-inch 1280x800 pixel IPS capacitive touchscreen display (which allows for an ultra wide viewing angle) with 16GB onboard storage, 1GB RAM, Wi-Fi, a five-megapixel rear camera and a front facing HD ready one, an HDMI port, Bluetooth and a microSD card reader.

Like many of its competitors, it runs on the Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset clocked at 1GHz and is powered by Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

You can expect a battery life of up to eight hours which can be almost doubled thanks to the handy docking station that converts the tablet into a netbook for £55 and also adds two USB ports.

The Kesa-owned online retailer (as well as Laksys) seems to be the only one to have stocks of the tablet. Both Ebuyer and Amazon for example are only taking preorders for the tablet.

Asus has also included a few more add-ons including its own proprietary MyCloud, MyNet and MyLibrary as well as unlimited ASUS WebStorage and Polaris Office.
