Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 with Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS

By -


Asus EEE Pad Transformer comes with Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS which is specially designed for Tablet PCs and its loaded with Adobe Flash 10.2 support which makes Asus Eee Pad as one of the best Option for you as Apple iPad doesn’t support this Flash policy.

If you have walked past a billboard, or through a shopping centre, been on the internet, or watched TV recently, you’d have seen advertising for the latest tablet PC deals. The iPad; Motorola Xoom; Samsung Galaxy TAB – they’re all here and all screaming for your attention. What you may not have heard, even if you were straining was the voice of the Asus EEE Pad Transformer.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer is a tablet with a difference: it’s a hybrid touch screen computer with an attachable keyboard dock. Attach the keyboard and you have a notebook. Why is this important? Tablets are currently guilty of one major thing: poor on screen keyboard design and response. In some tablets currently making noise in the marketplace their keyboards are hidden away in a location that requires several taps of the touch screen to access, while others are unresponsive to the users fingers, sending the user running to the nearest external keyboard stockist in a cloud of frustration.

There’s also another surprise lurking in this attachable keyboard: Extra battery life – almost double! As a stand-alone tablet the Asus Eee Pad will last around 9 hours. Attach the keyboard after the tablet is fully charged and you’ve got 16 hours of juice. At 10 hours, the iPad’s battery is generally considered to be the market leader, but you wouldn’t get two working days out of the iPad 2.

The keyboard dock of Asus Eee Pad Transformer also houses an SD card reader, two USB ports.

The AsusEee Pad runs Android 3.0, the latest OS from Google’s open source platform. It has five customisable home pages, allowing you to group your social media, apps and content together; or whatever you like, that’s the beauty of it. Android 3.1 is rumoured to be coming soon to the Asus Eee Pad. From Android you have the App Market and from Asus you have 1 year of free and unlimited storage as an introduction to cloud computing.

The OS is powered by the NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2 1.0GHz dual-core CPU for excellent multitasking & 1080p video playback. The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is the fastest tablet processor on earth right now and if you want to say goodbye to the waiting and stuttering common to Windows without spending a fortune, this is the OS for you.

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer has 1.2 mp front and 5mp rear facing cameras that shoot HD quality video. The HDMI 1.3a port connects to a HD TV allowing you to stream entertainment from the web to your TV. Internally, you have 16GB of onboard memory and an SD card slot that will take an addition 16GB giving you total. Asus are planning to support 32GB cards with a later OS update.

So, why is Asus not shouting as loud as the others? I guess it doesn’t need to. Shipments have been limited and the product has been selling from anywhere between $400 and $530, which is still excellent value for an offering this diverse. The European release is set for the summer and as one Amazon customer said in their review “Why bother with the iPad2?” I think they have a point. Definitely Asus Eee Pad Transform is considered as best iPad Alternative.
