ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF101 Review: Assemble!
6 September 2011
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.
Conclusion: The Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 distinguishes itself from the sea of emerging Honeycomb tablets with its aggressive pricing, and an optional accessory that turns it into a virtual notebook.
Pros: Currently the most affordable Honeycomb tablet. Speedy Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. Honeycomb features strong multitasking, e-mail and calendar notifications. HDMI out for HD video and mirroring. $150 keyboard dock accessory turns the tablet into a virtual notebook.
Cons: Honeycomb interface can be cluttered. Virtual keyboard is slightly modified and doesn't handle predictive text well.
[Review] ASUS Eee Pad Transformer - A Month With A Tablet In Disguise
5 August 2011
Summary: If you just want a thin, sleek, and sexy tablet, you'd best look elsewhere (the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a good option). If you expect to do a lot of typing and are looking for something centered more around productivity, you should absolutely consider the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer. My time with it has left me genuinely impressed - Michael Bay wishes he could make Transformers half as awesome as this one.
Excerpt: Android 3.0 hasn’t really set the world on fire as yet, but with the launch of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet, things are certainly going in the right direction. We decided to grab ourselves a Transformer to give it a full going over and find out exactly how far the still-fledgling OS has come so far.
Conclusion: Overall I am really excited about the Asus Transformer. My biggest complaint is about the docking port being the only way to charge the tablet. This is on par with other tablets, so it is not something I can fault Asus for. Everything else about the tablet is exceptional and I look forward to using it every day.
Summary: Androidbook. With the Eee Tab TF101, Asus hopes reap the benefits of both notebooks and tablets. The concept of an Android tablet with an optional keyboard dock to transform it into a laptop has been around since at least the last Cebit trade fair. But now we take a closer look at one of these fully-functional transformers.
Pros: Attractive Case Design, Various Ports on Keyboard Dock, Good Screen, Runs Silently, Office Software Included, Above all, the docking option. Those who spend hours upon hours typing will find themselves satisfied with this Android-based tablet.
Cons: Reflective Screen, No 3G/UMTS Available Yet, A more competitive price. Even with the keyboard dock included, the TF101 should be considerably less expensive than the Apple iPad—then some real competition might flare up.
