In a bid to face the new market challenges posed by Apple’s new iPad2, Asus has launched a sleek tablet powered by Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS. Pet named EEE Pad Transformer, this 10.1 inch tablet is notable for the optional keyboard bundled with it.
The keyboard is lighter and usable than other keyboard docking options due to its flexibility and light weight. The EEE PadTransformer gives a range of options like ten finger touch, Flash supported video viewing and e-booking reading functionality. Bundled with the keyboard, it costs $600.
Asus is launching the Eee Pad Transformer convertible Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" tablet to rival Motorola Mobility's Xoom and Samsung's Galaxy Tab slates. The Transformer features dock. Asus March 25 unveiled the Eee Pad Transformer, a convertible tablet and the computer maker's first slate based on Google's Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" operating system.
The Eee Pad Transformer will compete with Motorola Mobility's Xoom and other Honeycomb tablets such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, which will launch in June. In concept if not in form factor, the Eee Pad and it's dock resemble the pairing of the Motorola Atrix 4G smartphone and Motorola Laptop Dock. When connected to the Laptop Dock, the Atrix 4G's content is ported to a larger computer display, and rendered accessible via a Webtop application and Mozilla Firefox browser.
Asus also stresses the Eee Pad's qualifications as a machine for media consumption, including support for Adobe Flash Player 10.2. Separately, the dock costs $499. If Asus follows the same model, the dock and Transformer could cost $799 or more. Asus on Friday launched its brand new Android-powered 10.1-inch Eee Pad Transformer tablet that comes with a full keyboard dock that gives a laptop-like experience. The convertible Android 3.0 Honeycomb-based Eee Pad Transformer’s 10.1-inch WSVGA LCD offers resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels. The screen has IPS technology and capacitive multi-touch support.
The list of the tablet’s striking features include 1GHz, dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 16GB/32GB of built-in flash storage, 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR.
It also has 2-in-1 audio jack, SD/SDHC memory card reader, mini HDMI port, an internal microphone, one docking port and 2 stereo speakers along with a battery that runs for 9.5 hours on the Eee Pad itself. In addition, the manufacturer has equipped the tablet with an HDMI-out port to allow users to display content on an HDTV. Currently, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is available for pre-order in Taiwan only. It will hit the UK store shelves on March 30, and then be available in the US.
