Asus is pushing out two tablets in the next couple of weeks, the first of which will be the Asus Eee Pad Transformer on April 6th.

The Transformer is a 10 inch slate powered by Android Honeycomb, and is so named because it can be docked with a keyboard to turn it into a laptop. However, the keyboard is an optional extra.

According to an article on PC Advisor, the 16GB version of the device will come in at £379, twenty notes cheaper than the iPad 2. If you want the keyboard with that, however, the price goes up to £429 (which is also the asking price for the 32GB model with no keyboard).

Other specs of the Transformer include a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of Ram, and a screen resolution of 1280 x 800. Oh, and the screen is scratch-proof gorilla glass, too.

The other tablet Asus is springing forth on April 10th is the Eee Slate EP121, a chunky 12 inch Windows 7 tablet which comes with a digitiser pen, 1.33GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of Ram and a 64GB SSD. However, this beast will run your wallet to the tune of £999.
