ASUS EEE Pad Transformer - "quick & dirty" review

Having used the transformer now for over 24 "on time" hours, I've been able to put together some likes and dislikes. This unit will be replacing my windows 7 laptop, with the exception of one program, which is on PC, but not available on android for a few more weeks. Once I receive the keyboard dock...

Re: Eee Pad Transformer

Just one other question, how would is your experience with the battery life so far? Right after the first charge, I was able to get 8h with 34% to spare. During that time, I was installing apps, testing games, playing flash video - basically doing everything. I'm quite happy, but I often use my dev...

Re: Eee Pad Transformer

Well Adobe put out another update for flash yesterday and it has further optimizations that will be made available in a future Honeycomb update. I'm not sure how much more they can optimize, but the flash experience is great. Was even able to watch a show on the Megavideo site without problems :)

Re: Eee Pad Transformer

Sounds like a great device. If they only had a 5"-7" model I would probably give my Archos 70 up for it. 10" is just to big for me, would be nice to have around at home though. Thanks for your review WMTOANDROID, any chance of a video of it in action? Yes, I'll even admit that 10" takes some gettin...

If you are in the market for a 10" tablet - this is the one to get. Selling my Archos made the purchase easier. Got any devices you can sell? :)

Re: Eee Pad Transformer

I've been playing with the transformer for a few hours now and I only have wonderful things to say about it. Honeycomb takes some getting use to, but it's not that complicated. Everythingmy archos tablet did, the transformer seems to be able to do better. I haven't tested everything that, but so fa...

Re: Eee Pad Transformer

Getting back to the original post.Hope someone gets an EEE pad soon so I can get reviews from members here I should have mine tomorrow - no dock, though, as it's not available yet. I'll likely be formatting and selling my Archos device pretty soon after I receive the EEE Pad, so I don't know if I'l...

Re: Eee Pad Transformer

Everyone talking about Honeycomb does realize that it was rushed to be produced on the Xoom, and is still buggy... right? It is not even a finished product yet. I would rather be on Gingerbread or FroYo until Honeycomb is complete, rather than be running to my nearest store just because a device ha...

Re: Eee Pad Transformer

My god, did someone pi$$ if your cereal today? Are we comparing tablet to tablet or tablet + all it's accessories? I think the Ipad has a few thousand accessories for it, should we say that it's a $20,000 device? Get real. The keyboard dock is an ACCESSORY. If you are looking for a Honeycomb tablet...

Let me ask you. If I was in the market for a Honeycomb tablet in the next two weeks, which would you recommended? You can speculate all you want about what's "around the corner", but if you know anything about how the technology industry works then you'll realize that something better and cheaper i...

Re: Eee Pad Transformer

I'm sorry, where is this going? I couldn't care less if it cost them $0.01 to make the keyboard dock - I VALUE IT at $150+ because of the benefit of using it for work. If you don't need it, it wouldn't matter what it costs. As far as the price goes. Are we talking about the same device? The Asus wil...

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

This update was brutal! Did an OTA update like usual. After the update downloaded, it asked if I wanted to install it. I hit yes and the device rebooted - only it didn't... I had to hold the power button for 10 seconds and turn the device back on. It did the firmware update and then it got stuck on ...

Re: Eee Pad Transformer

The Transformer keyboard is HUGELY overpriced, but that's Asus pricing strategy, they want to make most people pay more than an iPad. HUGELY overpriced? I'm not sure I understand. The keyboard is customized to take advantage of honeycomb (special buttons for android specific functions), so it's not...
