The tablet market is becoming more competitive almost by the day. Last week’s launch of the Apple iPad 2 was quickly followed by the new this week that Samsung has cut the price of its Galaxy Tab.

Now Asus – a leader in the netbook arena – has launched its Eee Pad Transformer tablet, which distributor Platinum Micro expects to take a major share of the local market.
“We are already seeing strong interest in the Asus Eee Pad Transformer with its powerful and responsive Android 3.0 operating system and NVidia Tegra 2 dual core processor catching attention within the South African market,” says  Tyrone Grüner, senior product manager at Platinum Micro.
“Expandable with an optional keyboard docking station, Adobe Flash 10.2 support and the intuitive ASUS Waveshare user interface, the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer offers exciting capabilities for content creation, social communication, high-definition media playback and smooth, realistic game play.”
The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer will be available in South Africa in May.
