Asus Eee Pad Transformer now available in the UK, already rooted

Craving for that sweet Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet, are we? Well if you live in the UK, get that credit card of yours ready as the slate has just become available. Comet has it in store and despite being a few days early it doesn’t charge a premium price for the Eee Pad Transformer – it’s still the expected £380.

The bad news is that the keyboard/docking station is still not available so you will have to wait a few more days to get the full set. Still you now get your chance to experience the Tegra 2 prowess on a Honeycomb tablet on a price that’s not prohibitively expensive (we are looking at you Moto XOOM).

And there’s more good news for the Transformer fans coming from the Modaco forums. Apparently users PaulOBrien and BumbleDroid have already managed to root the Eee Pad Transformer. The solution isn’t publicly available just yet, but that should happen sooner rather than later.

You can order your Transformer from Comet by following the source link below. Other retailers should get it soon too.
