    Lightbulb Asus EEE Transformer 2 could be coming November 7th

    We know that a successor to the Asus EEE Transformer is in the works, and now there’s some concrete evidence that the new tablet is coming soon. A UK online shop has a listing for the “Asus TF201″, which is probably the model number of the Transformer’s successor – the original’s official designation is TF101. A November 7th release date lines up nicely with previous rumors of a Q3/Q4 debut.

    The original Transformer is one of the most popular Android Honeycomb tablets out there, so it’s no surprise that the update is on its way. According to previous leaks and the store listing, the Transformer 2 will feature a Tegra 3 processor (probably the much-anticipated Kal-El), a full gigabyte of RAM and (at least in this listing) 32GB of storage space. Unfortunately no further specifications or a photo is included. The price in the listing is 448 British pounds before taxes, which comes out to about $700 USD. Keep in mind that retail prices for computers and gadgets are often much higher across the pond. No mention is made of software, but if it really is coming so soon, Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich both seem possible.



    The device is keeping its 10.1-inch screen, presumably with the current 1280 x 800 resolution intact. The store listing refers to the tablet as “gold”, but that could be a rather fanciful description of something like the current Transformer’s amber metallic hue. Keep in mind that stores often list products with estimated specifications and release dates, but the listing itself is a strong indicator that the Transformer 2 is coming sooner rather than later.

    I doubt I need the speed improvement and the Kar-El sounds nice but lets face it where where the games for the Tegra 2 - pretty much dead. So I'm skeptical but I love the fact it can play Lost Planet 2.

    That's about all that's floating about the rumor/report mill up until now.
    .....and that's by far not enough to upgrade for me...

    Cost at launch I do not think will be cheap. I think I recall something about a steeper price as they will no longer compete with the Xoom or iPad, or at least use price as a competitive sticking point. They are looking to the hardware as the major distinction.

    Take this with a grain of salt - You have to love rumours I've been reading a French site (cnet) saying that the Transformer 2 should have the same aluminum back as the newly released UX21 and UX31 and because of this should be lighter. It supposed to come in a 16GB, 32Gb and 64GB version. Anyways, we'll know eventually
