While official accessories exist for lots of non-Apple products, actually finding those accessories in a store is a whole other story. Some of these companies aren’t great at distributing their main products, so once you get accessories in the mix it just gets worse. Our original post on this accessory has comments to prove that. That’s why I actually find it newsworthy when the official (whether or not that is true or not) Asus Transformer USB adapter hits a webshop that most people have a realationship with at this point, dx.com aka Dealextreme.
The adapter will add a full sized USB port to the Asus Transformer and Transformer Prime, something that is nice to have on a tablet where the dock is what normally has the USB port. That opens up for a lot of new accessories to be used, including (I would think) Asus’ own USB GPS dongle. The adapter is $32.20, which is a bit steep, but that also includes worldwide shipping, so it’s not all bad – and if you’ve been looking for this for a while, it should be worth it.[DX.com]
