    Component Shortage Holding Asus Transformer Shipments to 10k Per Month



    The Asus Transformer went on-sale briefly last week through online retailers, but as many of you know by now, was sold out within minutes. There were rumors of component shortages, and according to new sources, those same shortages could plague this tablet’s life through June. Asus is reportedly only able to make/ship 10,000 units per month when they originally expected to make upwards of 300,000.

    Be patient and good luck if you're like me, waiting to get my hands on one of these bad boys. If you don’t mind waiting though, feel free to pre-order one from Target using coupon code TCA27BAR and you’ll save $40.

    I wonder how many preorders they allowed before pulling it? I got mine in but it said 3-6 weeks before delivery estimated.

    I heard that iPad had nicked all the touch screens. If so, isn't there any way you can file an unfair competition complaint against apple.

    Apparently, it's not a slowdown in production...

    According to John Swatton, marketing manager at ASUS:

    "Various sources are saying that production has slowed, this is untrue. Production has been increasing steadily since the first shipments left the factory, and we will continue to see increasing quantities delivered to UK retailers. We have implemented a number of additional testing procedures for the Eee Pad Transformer to ensure an unrivalled user-experience. This has resulted in delays to a number of shipments"

    I don't know if this only applies to production for UK or the world but if this is true, streamlining testing procedures would be easier to overcome than a shortage in components.

    I have mine ordered from J&R in NY. I have no idea when it will actually get to me, but I am going out of my mind waiting.
