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. Shen believes Android 4.0 will mark a major step forward for Android based tablets and he expects Asus to ship between 1.5 and 2 million tablets this year.
