ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, análisis

 

Tras varios días de experiencia con el flamante Eee Pad Transformer, nos hemos quedado con un cierto sabor agridulce. Entre las características que más gratamente nos han sorprendido se encuentran la versatilidad de su dock, por ofrecer teclado,...

Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101

 

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.

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...

Honeycomb interface can be cluttered. Virtual keyboard is slightly modified and doesn't handle predictive text well.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF101 review

 

Back in the fall of 2007, ASUS decided there was room in people's lives for a highly portable, secondary computer that could handle basic tasks — surfing the web, checking email, listening to...

Entire package is affordable ; Great quality display ; Over 13 hours of battery life when paired with the dock ; Comfortable keyboard

Overly plasticy construction ; Tablet is longer than others ; Poor camera quality

At $399, the Transformer is the most affordable Honeycomb tablet out there, and even beyond that, it’s actually one of the best

Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 Review

 

We give ASUS a lot of credit for the Eee Pad Transformer TF10, which beats the Lenovo U1 Hybrid to market as the first Android tablet that connects to a keyboard dock. In addition to making typing easier, the Transformer's $149 dock adds a battery life...

Fast Tegra processor, Elegant design, Wide viewing angles, Long battery life, especially with dock, Keyboard dock adds versatility, Lighter than other 10-inch Android tablets

Touchscreen less responsive when docked, Some software glitches, Docking should be easier

Review Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 Tablet/MID

 

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...

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

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

Review Asus Transformer Eee Pad TF101 vs. Acer Iconia A500 vs. Motorola Xoom vs. Apple iPad 2

 

The big tablet comparison test. The autocracy of Apple's iPad is slowly coming to an end. Meanwhile, there are a few vying products in retail or are waiting at the starting line for their launch. We've looked at three strong iPad 2 opponents and call...

We also measured the Asus Transformer's temperatures after a long 3D game load. The tablet gets warm, but not overly hot with 39?C (top) and 36?C (bottom)

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Review

 

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...

Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101G Review

 

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.

Beautiful IPS display, Detachable screen, Premium look and feel, Good keyboard

Touchpad on dock isn't the best
