Dearest tech hungry Canadian: you will have the privilege of being able to acquire what is looking like one of the best Android tablets of 2011 on April 26th!
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer has been called by many of the biggest tech sites “the best Honeycomb tablet yet”. While time will prove if these bold assertions are true, we are inclined to agree. There have been several comments here at Android Authority that the Acer Iconia A500 has a superior offering simply by virtue of the fact that it has a full-sized USB port on the tablet itself, whereas the Transformer does not. Either way, the Transformer features a color popping and wonderfully appointed IPS Display, and is one of the most responsive Honeycomb devices out to date.
You will be able to get your sweaty palms on one of them at one of these locations, Canada wide apparently:
While we don”t have any idea on the number of devices available on the Canadian market, this tablet is, in many ways, still under the radar so i’m sure if you pay a preemptive visit to either Visions or Staples, that you will be able to ensure you get one on launch day! The Asus Eee Pad Transformer sold out within a matter of days in the UK, and we expect it to be the same in Canada and the US. Good luck and let us know if you manage to get one!

Anyone find one of these in Canada?
- Called 3 staples stores, 2 had never heard of the transformer, 1 knew what it was but said they weren’t selling it any time soon.
- Someone from Canada Computers said the ASUS distributor wouldn’t give them the time of day about when these were coming
- Gentleman from NCIX hadn’t a clue.
Pretty lacklustre launch. To think I was considering showing up a few minutes before opening to grab one.
I have been all over the place today, Staples aren’t getting them in the stores, can computers is unsure as to the time of arrival, and ncix are dumb as nails, “did you or are you getting the asus transformer?” “What’s that? ” “the new tablet from asus” “what’s a tablet? ” WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO stupid, just gunna keep checking with can computers
“the Acer Iconia A500 has a superior offering simply by virtue of the fact that it has a full-sized USB port on the tablet itself, whereas the Transformer does not.” – the Transformer has 2 USB ports actually :)
and it’s not available in Canada yet :(
the two USB ports are on the keyboard dock, not on the tablet itself.
It’s the end of May. Anybody seen one in any supplier in Canada yet?
