If you have watched our blog closely during the past few weeks, you probably already know that we here at Androinica.com love ourselves a nice bargain. Which is why when we first heard that the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, one of the most popular Android-based tablets ever, is on sale, we had to let you know of it.
The Transformer on special offer is a refurbished 16 GB model and goes for 298 dollars. The deal comes from eBay and, while some of you might be frightened by the possibility of being hassled, you should know that the seller is a trusted and respected one and that you also have eBay Buyer Protection for this particular item.
Now that we have sorted out your concerns (at least I hope), let’s talk a bit about the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. This 10-incher is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, features 1 GB of RAM and sports a 1280 x 800 pixels resolution IPS Capacitive LED Touchscreen.
Even though it still runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb, the Transformer is set to be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in just a few short weeks, as we informed you a while back. Other features include some great dual cameras (a 5 MPx rear-facing one and a 1.2 MPx front-facing), as well as all you could need in terms of connectivity (WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS), but also a very strong battery.
The tablet on sale at eBay comes with a 90-day warranty, which ensures that you will get a fully functional gadget, and the payment methods accepted are PayPal, Bank Wire, but also credit cards for US order with US billing address.
If you are still ‘’not sold’’, you should know that eBay’s price is currently around 100 bucks less than what this 10-incher goes for on pretty much all other online stores right now. So, what are you waiting for, guys? This is the Android deal of the day and a great opportunity to have a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich in just a couple of weeks for only three hundred bucks!
