Slashgear reported thatÂ another Android version of the Transformer launch this fall. The rumor about Asus Eee Pad Transformer 2 quoted from â€śsourcesâ€ť in Taiwan in the supplier chain. The sources claim that the Transformer 2 will land in October or November this year.
The new version of Asus Eee Pad Transformer 2 is said to run the NVIDIA Tegra 3 chipset and Android Ice Cream Sandwich. The sources claim that with big orders for Tegra parts that Asus will become the largest customer of NVIDIA passing up Acer. Acer is having issues moving its tablets in the numbers it expected and has been cutting expectations for its offerings.
The sources also claim that Asus has a PadFone with Tegra and Ice Cream Sandwich coming as well. I think the PadFone is doomed honestly, it doesnâ€™t seem that interesting to me. Asus will be tossing more tablets onto the market in the coming months with the Slider packing its keyboard underneath the screen comes in July and the MeMo Pad expected late this year. Interestingly, the sources also claim the Transformer wonâ€™t make money for Asus and will be sold at break even. The hope is apparently to make money off the cool notebook dock.
