Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101
Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, wow, I feel the Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 is a superbly powerful tablet made as practical as a laptop by the keyboard dock. Sadly, it’s let down by its outdated operating system — it’s premium in hardware, but not in software.
The Eee Pad Transformer runs Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), which immediately gives it an edge over devices 7with larger screens running Android 2.x versions.
The processor, Nvidia’s dual-core Tegra 2, is the same as that in the LG Optimus 2X, and it’s supported by 1GB of RAM. There was 16GB of internal storage in our review sample, and the microSD card slot can be used to add a further 32GB. The USB and SD slots on the keyboard allow for further storage expansion.
There’s no mobile broadband connectivity, but Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n), Bluetooth (2.1+EDR) and GPS are all present. The screen rotates automatically as you turn the tablet in your hand, and it is very responsive
Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101 Specification
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is an impressive marriage of tablet and keyboard. The design is generally good, although the system’s top-heaviness in clamshell mode is a worry.
Sadly, the older version of Android is a big let-down, making it premium in hardware, but not in software. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for an update in January
