ASUS Eee Pad Transformer outselling the iPad?
- Yes, EAT was tipped off to this story by an employee of ASUS, but we don’t think it’s just PR fluff. There’s been a lot of huff and puff in the press lately about how iPad is slaying any and all Android competition in the great tablet wars that are going on, and yet this screenshot, taken from Amazon’s new tablet store shows that the Eee Pad Transformer is, for today at least, the best selling tablet around.EAT suspects that what this really means is that Transformer stock has arrived in the UK again, and – like every shipment so far – is selling out as fast as it can be got onto the shelves. Plus, we have no idea how many iPads Amazon shifts, since Apple has an equally strong online presence. And it’s been rumoured that the iPad 2 has been undergoing serious stock shortages, possibly related to the fire in one of its Chinese suppliers’ factories recently.Still, it’s not a bad accolade for the device all the same. We’ll check back and see how it’s doing tomorrow.
