Summary: The Transformer is the perfect tablet for more than one type of user. It's great if you're just looking for a well made gadget, for example, as it's small, robust and packed with features. If you're yet to be convinced by tablets, however, the Transformer is even better. With the keyboard attached, it really is a close run thing between the Transformer and the current crop of CULV laptops.
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: The Transformer is a very good system, when used as either a tablet or as a netbook. The battery life would easily last a whole work day, unless massive workloads were imposed on the system – either graphics visualisation or complex calculations. Of all the tablet systems we have used, the Transformer was the easiest to work with, a major factor being the ability to use a physical keyboard, rather than an on-screen software keyboard.
Excerpt: The Asus Eee Pad Transformer combines a 10.1-inch Honeycomb tablet with an accessory keyboard that looks to put other docking, and non-docking, tablets to shame. When the Eee Pad Transformer was first announced it drew a smirk from us, but seated on the Pocket-lint reviews desk we have to take our hat off to Asus: the Asus Eee Pad Transformer looks sensational.
Pros: Design, great screen, microSD card slot works, relatively raw Honeycomb runs nicely, some extra additions from Asus add day 1 functionality, keyboard well made, value for money
Cons: Keyboard problems, lack of video codec support
Summary: With the iPad 2 available for less than £400 and full of apps for all occasions, Android needs a hero tablet, and it needs one now. After a few false starts, in the netbook/tablet hybrid Asus Eee Pad Transformer, it's finally found one. With a 10.1in screen and a healthy bezel around the edge, the slate part is slightly longer and narrower but exactly the same depth as the original iPad.
Excerpt: 2011'in ilk yarısında ASUS'un CEO 'su sahnede "büyük bir sürprizleri" olduğunu duyurduğunda tahmin ediyoruz ki kimse Eee Pad Transformer gibi bir üründen bahsettiğini anlayamamıştı. Eee Pad Transformer, Eee Pad Slider ile birlikte netbook ve tablet arasında gidip gelen kullanıcıları bu büyük ikilemden kurtarabilecek melez bir cihaz.
Pros: Q klavye ve touchpad destekli dock, Başarılı ekran, Uzun şarj süresi, Şık tasarım
Cons: Dock takılıyken dokunmatikte ve klavyede takılmalar olabiliyor, Dock'a takma işlemi daha kolay olabilirdi
