ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Tablet selling like crazy

I just read a PC World article about how the healthy sales figures for the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is “surprising” and I couldn’t resist making this post. Why wouldn’t the Eee Pad Transformer sell well? Why is it’s 400,000 units per month sales figures surprising? It’s cheaper than most other tablets, offers many features like USB connection and expandable memory that consumers have been clamoring for plus the icing on the cake which was written off as a gimmick by some is it’s docking feature that allows it to take on the form factor of a laptop while extending battery life and adding even more ports and connections.

Look beyond the brand

I fell in love the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer from the minute I saw it and elaborated a little in my posts – ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is a winner. My only concerns were build quality and whether updates to the Android OS would be available quickly. While the build quality isn’t A+ it does deliver for it’s price and software updates for the Eee Pad Transformer have come out even before some of it’s competitors like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Motorola Zoom.

Do your research before buying

The success of the  ASUS Eee Pad Transformer proves that consumers should make well researched choices when making tech purchases and not be influenced entirely by brand names and hype. This is even more important in emerging segments like tablets. Apple may be king with the iPad, Samsung and Motorola may be more well known but it’s lesser known brands like Asus where much of the deals lie. So next time do some digging and not be “surprised” like PC World was.

    Now that you mention the whole lesser known brands are the ones which seem to be making waves in the Tablet market it seems that Viewsonic also has from what I have heard of techies who have been following Tablets good features and value for the price of the item. I think the Viewsonic VPAD was the one that was mentioned and I’m now hearing them talk about the “Acer Iconia”, I’m not sure what level they are on though. But in all fairness when I think of Asus I have always thought of quality mostly in regards to Asus Motherboards but separate and apart from that Asus is basically viewed as the Father of Netbooks they basically placed Netbooks on the map and then companies like Acer joined the fray, so to hear that Asus is now dominating Tablets I’m in no way surprised.
