Asus' EP121 and Transformer tablets to reach UK next week

£429 for 16GB Transformer with keyboard/battery dock

Asus' pride and joy Eee Slate EP121 and Eee Pad Transformer tablets are scheduled to hit the UK, and most probably other European countries, over the next two weeks. The business oriented, Intel/Windows 7 based, Eee Slate EP121 should start shipping as of April 10th while the quite unique, Tegra 2/Android 3.0 based, Eee Pad Transformer is scheduled for April 6th.

We already wrote about these two tablets during CeBIT and in case you missed it, the Eee Slate is based on Intel's Core i5-470UM 1.33GHz CPU paired up with 4GB of memory, a 64GB SSD, a 12.1-inch 1280x800 capacitive touch screen with Gorilla Glass and Windows 7 Home Premium OS. The rest of the features include a 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, 2M web cam, card reader, USB 2.0 port and HDMI output. Asus will bundle the EP121 with digitizer pen and Bluetooth keyboard. The price for the UK is set at £999 which might sound like a lot for a tablet, but then again, it is not your average tablet either.

The cheaper, and probably more interesting one for the average consumer, Eee Pad Transformer is scheduled to appear on 6th of April. And once again, in case you missed it, this 10.1-inch tablet packs Tegra 2 chip paired up with Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS. It comes with a 10.1-inch IPS 1280x800 screen with Gorilla Glass, a 5M back and 1.2M front cam, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, miniHDMI output, and will be available in 16 and 32GB versions. The key feature of the Eee Pad Transformer is its keyboard dock that actually has a built-in battery that could extend the battery life to up to 16 hours.

The Eee Pad Transformer will be bundled with "unlimited" Asus WebStorage and should cost £379 for the 16GB version and £429 for the 32GB one. The 16GB version with the keyboard dock is also priced at £429 which means that the 32GB should be priced somewhere around £479.
