Hopes to compete in $499 market
Asus CEO Jerry Shen dismissed reports claiming Asus was planning to drop tablet prices and delay the launch of its next generation Eee Pad Transformer.

Shen said Asus was on track to launch the new Transformer later this year, with a price tag of $499. Asus is clearly positioning the Transformer as a premium product and it will probably be the first tablet with a quad-core processor, courtesy of Nvidia.
