Remember the stunning MyWater live wallpaper that was ripped out of the Transformer a month ago, complete with ice cubes floating in water that shifts around when you tilt your tablet? Here it is:

I actually had no idea but apparently the water level changes depending on the battery charge level. Very cool!

This was the only live wallpaper I've ever considered running on my XOOM - it's original, well done, and constantly draws intrigued stares from the people around.

ASUS Is Making a Tablet Phone Combination Thing, To Be Unveiled At Computex

With its Transformer tablet selling like hot cakes, ASUS is probably feeling pretty good about its Android product division right now. Next on the hardware manufacturer's list? A tablet phone sort of... thing. Is it going to be another Dell Streak mini-tablet mega-phone? I don't think so, though these are the images we've got of it so far:

ASUS Says Eee Pad Transformer Delays Are Due To Demand, Ramps Up Production To Meet It

We've all heard the rumors surrounding the shortage of Eee Pad Transformers, but now an ASUS spokesperson has come forward to let us all know the real deal: demand. One would assume that a company like ASUS would be able to predict that putting out the most economical device in its category would generate a lot of demand, but apparently it doesn't work that way.

ASUS spokesperson David Chang said that they would be dropping 100,000 Transformers in May, with an additional 200,000 to be shipped in June.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Shipments Running Low - Quality Control To Blame Rather Than Component Shortages?

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is quickly becoming the darling of the Android tablet world. With all the specs (dual-core, Android 3.0, keyboard dock - the list goes on) and a price tag at $400, this may just be the one Honeycomb tablet to rule them all. Alas, when a great product and a great price meet, there is great demand - and when there is great demand and a less-than-great supply level, there is a high level of dejected customers leaving their electronics retailers with empty hands.

[Deal Alert] ASUS Eee Pad Transformer $40 Off From Target, But With A Catch - It's Backordered

The Transformer is already a pretty great deal in the world of Android tablets - you get the same 10.1" screen and dual core processor as its competitors, for the low price of just $399.99.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Sold Out At Best Buy, Supply Shortages Likely To Blame

Yesterday, we told you that the Acer Iconia A500 tablet was available at Best Buy for $450, but if that wasn't your cup of tea, to wait one more day. That day has passed, and now the 16GB ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is available for $399 making it the most bang-for-your-buck Honeycomb tablet on the market. While the Transformer may be a very economical Android tablet, that doesn't mean that Asus skimped on specs:

  • 10.1 Inch 1280x800 IPS display
  • 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB Storage
  • 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
  • Honeycomb

It looks like the 32GB version isn't available just yet, as I couldn't find it on Best Buy's website.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Goes On Sale April 26th For $399/$499 - Hear That, Motorola?

Looks like at least one company got the MeMO (pun intended) on tablet pricing - ASUS just announced that the Eee Pad Transformer will start at a mere $399. Now, that'll buy you a 16GB model; if you want to step the gigabyte count up to 32, you'll have to shell out an additional $100, raising the price to $499. Still, even when you take into account the fact that the $149 keyboard dock isn't included, that's not a bad deal at all - in fact, both prices shave a benjamin off what Apple will charge for an equivalent iPad 2.
