Conclusion: Note that up until a few weeks ago the only product able to match the price of the Eee Pad Transformer was the Acer Iconia Tab A500 ( read our review ) with all other tablets selling for $500 or more. Lately though, we've had the HP TouchPad fire sale and other Honeycomb tablets like the Toshiba Thrive dropping in price. When compared to the iPad 2 , the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is roughly $100 less.
Asus EEE Pad Transformer review – best Android tablet so far, but…
23 September 2012
Conclusion: All in all, there are lots of things we like about the Asus EEE Pad Transformer. It’s definitely a solid piece of technology and is well built, good looking and powerful. Comes with nice connectivity options, nice features and an amazing IPS high-resolution display, the best you can get on a tablet right now. We also find the pad quite comfortable to use for a longer time, because of its wider ergonomic body and rubbery finish on the back, that allows perfect grip.
Excerpt: Much like the netbook market, tablets have come of age and everyone seems to want one. Also similar to netbooks it seems that the market is saturated by tablets from many different manufacturers. Asus can be credited for making the netbook market a reality and for offering some of the finest netbooks made. Today we take a look at the Asus Transformer TF101 tablet to see if Asus has kept the tradition of offering an excellent product in the tablet market.
Summary: The Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101g is a dream come true which pairs a very good Android tablet with a tried-and-tested netbook keyboard to create one great product. It's sleek, stylish, and extremely practical and well worth its asking price.
Pros: Beautiful IPS display, Detachable screen, Premium look and feel, Good keyboard
Excerpt: ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is a 10.1-inch Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet with NVidia's dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 5-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera (for video calls), Wi-Fi connectivity and a memory card slot. What makes the Transformer special is a detachable keyboard, which effectively turns the tablet into a smartbook.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Conclusion: We were surprised by the Asus Eee Pad Transformer; it’s easy to shrug it off as a desperate attempt at marrying an Android tablet the the keyboard-based convenience of a netbook. But it charms, and is a great standalone tablet - more stylish and stable than the Motorola Xoom, yet more rugged than the Galaxy Tab range. The keyboard is great; but that docking mechanism could be smoother; it’s agony to hear the tablet scrape and squeeze into the dock connection.
Excerpt: The Asus Eee PC Transformer TF101 is the first Android tablet of its kind. One one end, it’s a Honeycomb tablet and on the other, it’s an Android netbook. Its design and form factor gave it a bit of an edge that no other tablet can match. Read on and check out our full review of the Asus Transformer after the jump.
Excerpt: Tablets may be the darling of the tech industry, but they’ve also received their fair share of criticism as well. One of the most consistent barbs throw towards them is the tablet’s inability to serve as a competent platform for content creature. While it’s technically possible to write a document or edit an image on a tablet, it’s certainly not enjoyable.
