Exactly a week ago, damn gadget went into a frenzy like ASUS turned the North American release of its Eee tablet Pad transformer.

The sellout situation was partly due to the popularity of the tablet, though later reports suggested that the Taiwanese company only managed to hit half of its planned shipment numbers.

Now there is the German word Netbook News website (via Engadget) that the shortages in the United States may be due to something other than an initiative to gather ASUS hype for its new version. The company seems to have a difficult time getting a hold of the necessary components to build the thing, which limits the production capacity of only 10,000 units per month. ASUS reportedly expected to begin with a circulation of 300,000, but now that he's looking like we will wait until June before the Transformers start appearing in greater numbers.
