BRWC has been sent a ASUS Eee Pad Transformer to play about with, and blog the findings and results…
We’ll tell you all about it, and if we liked it or not in the next couple of weeks or so.
Basically, it’s a little netbook with the screen being able to detach itself from the keyboard and be used as a 10 inch touchscreen tablet.
Here’s some bumpf -

  • 10.1-inch WSVGA IPS capacitive pressure-sensing multi touch display for brilliant HD entertainment and intuitive navigation
  • Lightweight and made with ultra-tough glass for easy portability and robust durability
  • Powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2 mobile processor for best Web experience with upto two times faster browsing, hardware accelerated Flash, and console quality gaming
  • Front (1.2 MP) and rear (5 MP) cameras for face-to-face video chats and on-the-go video and picture capturing
  • Mini HDMI port to supersize your entertainment to compatible HDTVs and external displays
Amazing eh?
I haven’t had much time with the Eee Pad as of yet, but I have found that the build quality is excellent.  It feels real solid in the hand.  It looks pretty good as the netook, with the detachable keyboard, a clever touch I think.
The screen is pretty good to be fair.  Now I haven’t owned any of these tablet slate things before, so I have nothing to compare it with, but the quality is there to see.  Nice size – 10 inches and the resolution is in HD.  Perfect for films.  I managed to watch a few clips from its’ YouTube App and it was really nice.
I did have trouble connecting to my WiFi mind you – it took ten attempts….!
I’m gonna stick some apps on there later, so we’ll see what it can do!
Like a dodgy cigarette, this little badboy is going to be passed around some of the BRWC team to see what they think.  Of course, you’ll be the first to know.
