Although little is known about the Eee Pad Transformer 2 it is likely to feature the latest Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, to improve efficiency and number crunching power over the Tegra 2 chip found in the first edition.

Analysts believe that Asus will sell a million Eee Pad Transformers in the third quarter of 2011, more than doubling the 400,000 it shipped in the second quarter of the year.

The keyboard dock which makes the Eee Pad Transformer a hybrid of a tablet and a laptop is likely to remain a key feature of the second iteration, although there is no word as to whether backwards compatibility between second generation tablets and first generation docks will be possible. It is likely that Asus will win over fans with the Eee Pad Transformer 2 as its tablet proficiency increases.
