There’s a damn-serious amount of competition a-brewing in the PC tablet market these days, and it’s only getting started thanks—in part—to the introduction of the iPad.
The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF 101 is one of those competitors. Boasting a 10.1-inch, multi-touch LED screen (1280 x 800p), the Eee Pad Transformer features:
- Wireless N compatibility with legacy G and B support
- Bluetooth V2
- AN NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, Android O/S with MyCloud, MyNet, and MyLibrary built-in
- 1080p video playback with HDMI output and wireless streaming capabilities
- Two cameras—a 5 megapixel rear-facing and 1.2 mp front-facing one
- SRS surround sound with 3D dynamics
- Rugged, scratch-resistant glass
- An optional docking station that includes QWERTY keyboard, two additional USB ports, an SD and Micro SD card reader, and additional battery
Furthermore, the tablet’s Android O/S itself is fully Adobe Flash Player 10.2 compliant, and the optional docking station/keyboard combo provides an additional seven hours to the TF 101’s 9-hour battery.
It’s yet to be seen whether the TF 101 is a worthy competitor to exciting new tablets from companies like Blackberry, Samsung, Microsoft, and the reigning king—Apple.
