Judge: Asus Transformer Isn’t Infringing On Hasbro’s Trademark — And Asus Reveals Embarrassing Sales Stats

I find this kind of hard to believe.

  • AvantGuard

    How is that possible? I still have a hard time finding them in stock. If they only sold 80k, they must have only MADE 81k.

    • Taylor Wimberly

      Ditto. They have been sold out since launch last year. Sad they couldn’t produce more to meet the demand.

      • Anthony Domanico

        making tablets: ASUS is apparently doing it wrong.

      • droidsam

        The reason its been sold out is because nvidia has had issues with the production of the tegra 3 chip. That’s also why we really have not seen any other devices with tegra 3 chips until recently.

    Does anyone know what the usual number of tablets a manufacturer would make on a first run? After taking my tablet a full 2 months after ordering it to be delivered I find this extremely difficult to believe.

    This is insane. The Prime is hands-down the best tablet I’ve used thus far. Really sad that it isn’t doing well.

    My assumption is that Asus isn’t very well known. I’ve only seen 4 or so TF101s on campus not including myself, 1 slider (my mom is playing word pop on my tf101 so i’m borrowing a slider XD ), and 1 transformer prime. Only a few laptops too. Of course that observation is extremely limited.

    At the place I work at I recommended the Asus transformer for its flexibility, ports, price, speedy updates, and quality but all 3 in the market for a tablet bought the galaxy tab instead.

    Asus tablets also get downplayed in popular media too. Every time I browse CNN, Huffington, or just about any news blog I see Ipad fuckin bananza and Galaxy Tab orgies. They either just don’t know there is better out there or they don’t know what they are talking about.

    It doesn’t help that they have basically silent releases. Only the techy people hear about them.

    The Prime is the BEST out now but it just doesn’t the coverage it deserves TToTT
