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.
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.
A 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.
Transform to notebook mode with keyboard docking station and 16*1 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.
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.

Love the Android OS on my cell phone so thought I would try a tablet with Android OS. Absolutely no regrets. Easy to use, intuitive, flexible and very powerful if you know how to take advantage of it's features. ASUS has made another fine group of products.
well....now that I own both an Ipad 2 and this unit..heres my 2 cents. The asus is my preferred overall in the end. The wide screen is better for movies and games for me, but the Ipads picture seems a bit brighter and sharper to me.(even after many changes in settings).Just being able to drag and drop files to this unit is huge for me ( not being married to Itunes). Availability of apps n games is similar but Id tip the scales to Itunes for more apps etc usable on the tablet rather than the phone. Android 3 is just the start for the O.S.being designed again for Tablet use instead of a phone.Like the Ipad ...you must convert video files to the format that is native to it...(mp4) or you can use the Vlc app and stream it to your tablet from your pc over your network...which works awesome for me streaming both video or music. At $339 for the open box and scoring a 16GB msdhc card.......its a great deal compared to Ipad 2 for a lot less $.
This would be my first Android system; and i'd like to say its a great tablet to get...tons of apps that u can dl and free. And so far im really liking the number of update s that asus puts into, now at 3.2~Also they are the first tablet that got update into 3.2 before some other brand like acer, and zoom etc etc. Now im taking it everywhere i go; great item to get to pass time and also to impress your friend and with the keyboard dock...works like an small notebook that let u type or take notes if you really needs to. As well as the price isnt that expensive if your comparing them with other tablets out there on the market.
This Asus Transformer is an excellent product. It does what it is supposed to and has excellent video playback and easy to share picks and video's. The adroid market is constantly updating with new apps including skype video which was not available with the original purchase so apps get updated and now with video skype its a hit with my clients at this price point. The casing is solid and has excellent grip. The screen seems solid but would recommeng a screen protector. I would recommend purchasing this tablet.
