Asus only launched its new Pad Transformer on April 26th but its already in short supply. However the shortages are due to production limitations rather then sales. With Asus announcing that due to supply chain problems they are currently only able to produce 10,000 units a month, of their new Eee Pad Transformer. A far cry from the expected 300,000 monthly sales when the tablet was launched at the end of last month.
The new Asus Eee Pad Transformer is equipped with a 10.1 inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, processing is provided by a NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor which is supported with 1GB of RAM. It also has the ability to be docked with a separate keyboard transforming it into a notebook style device with an extended battery life.
Sources close to Asus are reporting the company is having problems obtaining components required for the manufacture of their Eee Pad’s, but little is know about which components are causing the manufacturing woes.
Asus is hoping the problems will be solved within the next couple of months and it will be able to ramp up its production once again in June to meet the demand of its Eee Pad Transformer customers.
