eee pad transformer 

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is listed on Amazon Canada's site as coming May 7. Asus is trying to differentiate it's Eee Pad Transformer from other Honeycomb tablets by allowing the 10.1-inch touchscreen to be used as a stand-alone device or while plugged into a full-sized QWERTY keyboard. 

The spec list looks good for this under the radar tablet as well:

  • 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 touchscreen
  • Attachable full QWERTY keyboard
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core 1 GHz processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 1.2 MP front-facing camera
  • 5 MP rear camera
  • 1080p video playback
  • 2 USB ports
  • SD card reader
  • 16GB model for $399 Canadian Dollars (approx $410 USD) (Amazon)
  • 32GB model for $499 Canadian Dollas (approx $514 USD) (Amazon)

If you've been on the fence about springing for a tablet but unsure, another strong competitor will enter the game come May 7 with very competitive pricing. [Amazon]
