The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Android tablet can now be had for only $299.99 from Best Buy online. This is the original Transformer tablet, which will soon get a shipping successor in the form of the Transformer Prime. Still, the Transformer is a very capable device even to this day, and it’s now cheaper than ever (well, except Black Friday).
So if you’d like to purchase a tablet this holiday season and think the iPad is too expensive and the Kindle Fire too limited, here’s your perfect choice. The Asus Eee Pad Transformer comes with the added bonus of a promised update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which should happen really soon. We say that since the Taiwanese company has the best track record with regard to tablet OS updates so far in the Android world.
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer has a 10.1-inch 1280×800 capacitive touchscreen, a 1 GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 16 GB of internal storage, a 5 MP rear camera and a 1.2 MP front-facing camera for video calls, Wi-Fi, and comes with a mini HDMI port. You can grab one right now from Best Buy if you so wish.
