Brilliant iPad Rival,
This review is from: Asus EeePad Transformer TF101 10.1 inch Tablet PC (nVidia Tegra2 1GHz, 1Gb, 16Gb eMMC, WLAN, BT 3.0, Android 3.0) (Personal Computers)
While Apple was the first to really hit the tab market with the iPad, this is definitely a challenger for their current crown. The screen is crisp and bright and the automatic brightness function works seamlessly, saving battery power in lower levels of light and allowing you to still see the screen in broad daylight.
Browsing is fast and the flash integration works great, providing an all round better web experience when compared to the iPad.
The pre-loaded Asus apps work great and allow for access to backed up files and control over PCs in the house which is great for home theater systems and playing music around the home.
The speakers are relatively poor but provide a recognisable sound and is definitely listenable.
Downsides include the Music app which is in Beta from Google which for me and some others crashes when in use but this is being fixed. There are currently plenty of apps however, not many have yet to be developed for the larger screen of a tablet, however, this does not often matter.
Overall, this tab is brilliant, the update to Android 3.2 is a must get as soon as you receive this tab!
For the quality and usability of this device for this price, it is a must buy. As "Stuff" magazine said 'If you want an iPad get an iPad, but, if you want a deeper experience get this.'
