And so the tablet war has begun and every major company is preparing their “A Game” in motion from Apple to Sony we saw it all and all of them look good and tempting but for me this is a tablet I call mine I present ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF101.
It is an Ultra thin and light design in a unique, stylish pattern With a super slim profile of only 12.98mm thick in a frame that weighs only 680g, the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is comfortable to hold from any position. The unique textured pattern offers a better tactile sensation, so it won’t feel as if it will slip out of your hands.
Powerful mini-cinema entertainment on-the-go Powered by the NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2 dual-core processor, the Transformer browses the web at blazing speeds, providing a snappier response time and better performance when multi-tasking. Sporting a HDMI 1.3a port, the Transformer can connect to a HDTV and 5.1 surround sound system, delivering an enhanced multimedia experience. In addition of an IPS Panel made from durable and scratch-resistant glass is viewable at angles up to 178°, and produces a crisper and more accurate color range by up to 50% when compared to other tablets in the market. With 5MP rear- and 1.2MP front-facing camera can shoot and record HD video, which can be played back in stunning 1080p. Output to HD video on HDTVs is also available via a mini HDMI output port, making it a true mobile entertainment device. Built-in SRS Sound technology provides a dynamic 3D stereo audio experience, with maximum bass response and a wide sound field from the discrete speakers housed within the Transformer.
What also draws me to it is… It Transform to notebook mode with keyboard mobile docking and 16 hours of battery life. The Transformer sets itself apart from other tablets on the market by featuring an optional docking station. This provides access to a full QWERTY keyboard along with unique Android Function keys, turning the tablet Transformer into a full-fledged notebook. A touchpad, 3.5mm audio jack, two USB ports as well as a built-in SD Card reader for easy file sharing and storage expandability makes the Transformer a versatile media hub. The docking station also extends the Transformer’s 9.5 hours of battery life up to 16 hours, so users can use it all day for work and play. And it will be Preloaded on the Transformer is Polaris® Office® 3.0, a professional mobile office Solution which enables users to edit various types of office documents including documents (.doc), spreadsheets (.xls) and presentation (.ppt) files, making the Transformer very attractive for professional use. In addition, the ultra-convenient ASUS WebStorage with one year of unlimited storage space provides worry-free cloud computing.
Operating System you say… well it operate on Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS with ASUS Waveshare UI Google’s Android Honeycomb is a revolutionary operating system specially designed and optimized for tablets, and enables users a full web experience for on-the-go web browsing, communicating and casual computing. Supporting Adobe® Flash® 10.2 and the ever growing Android Market, entertainment is a finger swipe away. While ASUS’ Waveshare Interface hosts a variety of unique applications such as MyNet, MyLibrary, MyCloud and more. MyNet easily streams digital media wirelessly within home network devices so HD videos or music can be played on devices such as an HDTV or desktop PCs for an even better experience from the Transformer. And I have to mention for book readers like I d that MyLibrary consolidates downloaded books, magazines and newspapers in to one easy step. Also Music, listen to your music or online radio and bring them wherever you go. The convenient ASUS Launcher also allows users to easily launch software, manage content and access online services and connect devices with a few simple taps. The MyCloud application is a total cloud solution, providing access to digital content such as music, videos and files from the cloud anywhere, anytime. Users can even use MyCloud to remotely access and control any PC or Mac system and access applications or files to extend the versatility of the Eee Pad Transformer experience. And my Highlights for this great piece of tech is rounded in 10 inch touch screen (For my everyday & social network use) with it specially made optimized keyboard (For my Blog use), Surfing the internet and watching the YouTube is never been better, though my bookshelf will be empty of my English Books at least I have a great book reader for it and taking it with me everywhere I want and with so many external storage port for extra space. The Android Honeycomb OS is my favorite for the tablet they done a great job creating this system maybe you will find few things doesn’t add up but there is always an update
So like I said if you looking for a great nice affordable tablet this is the one for you I tested the new Samsung Galaxy Tab from a friend of mine and this is also a good choice for a tablet too if you are considering other tablet than ASUS… So anyway I really love my new tablet and it comes with 16GB & 32GB mine was 16GB & it cost me with it keyboard 2,200 SAR which around 587 USD but if you just need the tablet without the keyboard you can get it 1,800 SAR which is around 480 USD and it got on my scale 4.8/5.
