As we are seeing lots of tablet PCs and touch screen media devices coming out, popular brand Asus has come up with the Asus EEE Transformer. This device is currently priced at $399 for the 16 GB model in wi-fi and $499 for the 32 GB wi-fi version. This is actually the cheapest Android touch screen tablet available in the market. Asus has also announced that they will be coming up with 3G models for commercial release soon.
The design of the Asus EEE Transformer has a lot of similarities with the touch screen devices that have already been released. It has a 10.1-inch display and has a slew of ports, buttons and slots for other media on its sides. It is known to run on Nvidia’s 1GHz dual-core chip and functions on a 1 GB RAM, which is pretty good for a mobile device. It has also been reported that it has Android 3.01 as its operating system as well. The user interface has been greatly improved by Asus to be easier to operate by its users. The device is about 0.5 inches thick and is a bit longer than the other touch screen tablets. This length is good for people who prefer viewing in landscape mode.
According to a lot of reviewers who have seen the Asus EEE Transformer in action, the design of the tablet is well thought of, as the placements for the slots and ports are very user friendly. It does not affect the usability of the ports and actually works well together. As the device also works with a docking station wherein a keyboard can be combined with it to make it like a laptop, it is said to be an interesting design because people can also use it for work and other things. The keyboard has also been improved in terms of design as the buttons were placed intelligently for ergonomic use. It also uses predictive text so that people can easily type without having to complete the whole words as it becomes filled out automatically.
The device comes with a rear and front facing camera. The rear camera is 5 megapixels, which can be used to shoot high-resolution pictures and videos at 720p, but it is important to note that it does not come with LED flash like other tablets. The screen is on 16:10 aspect ratio and the resolution is at 1280 by 800 pixels. Asus EEE Transformer is one of the heaviest contenders as many electronics developers come up with their own version of the improved tablet because of its smart design and features.
