Asus Transformer 16GB and 32GB In Stock at Walmart (Updated: All Gone)

If you have been waiting impatiently for an Asus Transformer to show up as “in stock” somewhere, then you may want to pop over to Walmart immediately.  They have both in stock, but for whatever reason are not calling theirs the “Transformer.”   It’s definitely it though.

32GB model (out of stock now)| 16GB model (also gone now)

Cheers Davies!

     I bought a 32GB version and Keyboard/dock from Fry’s (frys.com).. their online stock check showed it was not available.. but I called the store and they checked inventory and held one for me.. I’ve had it for about 2 weeks.
    Some myth’s debunked..  Tablet slides onto the dock and locks in place w/o issue.. just remember to firmly push down until silver slider moves fully to the right.  It’s responsive and sweet.. but doesn’t sync to corporate exchange (android level issue, not asus)…  Awesome video playback, awesome book reader, awesome ssh /rdp terminal to my beefier servers/desktop..   Get the sleeve and a 10″ netbook clamshell case.. both dock and tablet fits in a case even when they aren’t attached.

    If the Transformer is selling out this  quickly then how is this a true statement?

     “Sure, the XOOM and Transformer are quality products, but you can’t with a straight face say that they have been a success to either Motorola or Asus.”

    I would say we need to give them both a chance and wait until there are more apps designed for them before passing judgement. If you want a fair assesment between them and the *pad compare them to the sales of the *pad1 in the first few weeks. I’m just hoping to catch the Asus during one of these 2 hour “in-stock” windows!

    their delay has caused me to look at other options.. like that rumored Tegra 3 – yes 3 – chipped tablet from Amazon called the Hollywood coming this summer. Or even the Toshiba ANT with all kinds of USB and card readers and removable battery… or the 10.1 Tab.. just sayin

     Man this would be a great option to have in my classroom. Add some drawing apps/ photo editing apps and were all set.. not to mention the small footprint

     Hmm, this or Xoom? Or Galaxy 10.1?

      I’ve got the xoom, and love it, but if I could sell it to somebody, with the portfolio case and bluetooth keyboard, for $650 or so (and it’s the 3G model), I’d happily do that to get the Transformer… I’d love that dock for taking notes in law school

      • Jeffmassey803

        With the keyboard and a Bluetooth mouse, isn’t it the same thing? That’s what I have and it works great.

        • Anonymous

          It will be similar once they release the portfolio keyboard dock, but I find
          it awkward to have it in two pieces on a desk. idk. maybe I’m just a
          complainer lol

     I got this 2 weeks back from BB, not completely happy though. May be it is Apps available for HC. It seems like not there yet. Compared to iPad2 the Battery life on ASUS Transformer is not good. It goes for a day without any serious work. I think the first round of tablets will be just like this one

    Sorry for writing a completely -ve review but can’t help. I love Android phones but still looking for the same in tablet area….. :(

      turn off live wallpaper (even though the google maps one in satellite view is awesome).. it uses up alot of battery.. also the normal setting out of the factory seems to keep the tablet on all the time.. I have it sleep after 5 minutes.. I’ve gone 2 + days w/o charging with moderate use (.. trying to drain/charge the tablet for max battery life).  As for Apps, for my use case, I only added Evernote (screen cap embedded in notes is awesome) especially since it sync’s with my pc..  pulse and terminal emulate/rdp apps.. everything else is already there (also added flash 10.3.. as 3.1 is not out yet)… 

      What apps are you looking for .. I also have an iPad2 and the Transformer is making it gather dust (not.. as my older son is actually borrowing it more now).

    Anyone think it be better to hold off for Galaxy Tab 2 since it’s around the corner and very sexy?

      No.  No microsd slot, no usb or HDMI ports, no GPS.

    This is what I call fast.  See tweet from DroidLife that this thing is in stock at WalMart online.  I go to link provided.  Add to Cart button is present.  I pause for a moment (10 secs).  Add to Cart button disappears.

    That’s fast people.

      FTI Computer says they are “drop-shipping” from manufacturer… might be worth a call to see what type of time that takes. 

    • hoser

      Use the site “nowinstock.net” and it will alert you when there is stock.  That is how i got mine two weeks ago.  You better be ready to act fast!

     I really want htis but with the problems ppl over at xda are having, im definitely gonna wait for asus to fix em. They arent even sure if the “sleep of death” problem is hardware or software related at this point.

    • Anonymous

       I have yet to experience the sleep of death. People at xda only report problems, people who dont have problems arent posting about how much they love their device.

      • Anonymous

        Whoops i clicked like instead of reply…Don’t get ‘em wrong, ppl on XDA love their Transformers even with the sleep of death issue, maybe even more than ppl who dont know what XDA is. But as far as shelling out hundreds of dollars for something that could have a major hardware issue the day you buy it, i just cant do it. Im gonna wait til they at least determine the root cause of it. For anyone who doesnt know, people with stock, non rooterd TFs are experiencing the issue as well as rooted and ROM’d users. Basically, their TFs are getting stuck in sleep and a forced reboot by holding the power button is the only proven fix. For some, it happens on a daily basis.
