Asustek Transformer shipments top 400,000 units a month

Monthly shipments of Eee Pad Transformer tablet PCs from Asustek Computer have reached 400,000 units, making the company's goal to ship a total of two million tablet PCs in 2011 sustainable, according to sources at upstream panel suppliers.

Asustek's tablet shipments are expected to grow further in the third quarter, the sources said. The company has requested its touch panel providers supply a monthly target of 400,000-500,000 units during the quarter, the sources noted.

Asustek internally set a more aggressive goal for boosting its tablet shipments in 2011, the sources revealed. The company reportedly has placed contract orders of as high as 4-4.5 million units for the second half of the year, the sources indicated.

Asustek's tablets reportedly are assembled by Pegatron Technology.

In other news, Pegatron's June revenues grew 51.7% sequentially to NT$45.64 billion (US$1.58 billion), the highest since December 2009. Market watchers credited the significant on-month growth to strong sales of Asustek's Transformer devices.
