Asus Eee Pad Transformer Review: In Depth
16 September 2011
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...
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.
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.

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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
