Asus Eee Pad Transformer – A First Look

Simon Woods –

Had an email through a month or so ago asking whether I’d like to road-test something called the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. All I had to do was do a few reviews saying how I was getting on with it and then I could keep it – or sell it! I’ve had it a couple of weeks now and…well, have a look at the video below and see how I got on.

I’ll be doing another video in a few days, so if anyone has any questions about the Eee Pad, do fill them in on the comments section below, and If I’m up to it, I’ll try and address them in the next (non-wine) video.

And if you’ve arrived here for techie rather than wine reasons, Hi there, don’t go without reading this post.

    Everything for everybody else  may start with an Eee. but can  it for  me…?

    Well the more i read about the Asus Eee tablet. the more i want to know..

    It is a vast improvment to my normal reaction to technology..

    Which is usually. why so many keys ?  what do all these flashing lights mean ?

    Well today. Im Asking for the first time in my life…

    What can technology. what can the Asus Eee… DO FOR ME ?

    And again for the first time in my life…. I WOULD TRULLY LOVE TO FIND OUT !

    Just stumbled across this page on google. this looks awesome! i always found that when playing around with my friend ipad during lectures that a keyboard would have made life so much easier for when trying to take notes quickly, instead of faffing around with the onscreen keyboard. i see this as a more professional and useful alternative! cheers for the heads up, will definitely have to look into it.

    from the looks of it the tablet was not made for video chatting and
    taking pictures. you easily see in the video that it was not made for
    that. this tablet works good for games with its high-end processor, and
    is great for watching movies because of its nvidia graphics card so you
    can get the full hd experience. also it is running google android 3.0,
    which give the whole ui a nice touch. all around though this is a great
    tablet and in my opinion its even better than the ipad!

    Please press like!!

    A nice honest review, I particularly like the technical ineptitude interlude!  Simon shows it’s easy to use (even when you’re using it upside down!).  Had a play with one in a shop at the weekend, no keyboard though.  It’s not really a ‘transformer’ without a keyboard is it?!

  • Simeon Baker

    Not sure if he exactly sells it …?

    Transformer is simply the best due to this i want my transformer as soon as possible.So i said my brother to bring a transformer from US because its not available in my region.And i’m just waiting for my Pad masterpiece.

    I want to know the user interface of Transformer.Is it ASUS waveface.

    I purchased an Asus Transformer TF101 on Friday 17th June 2011. I plugged the Asus USB cable into an Apple USB extender cable on Sunday the 19th June 2011, to transfer data from my mac to the tablet. Because of the design of the Asus USB cable having extra pins in compared to a standard USB cable, the cables locked together, and I cannot separate them. This is the only way to charge the Asus TF101 Transformer. Therefore, I cannot charge the Asus TF101 Transformer – and Asus customer “support” have been useless. Actually, “useless” would be an improvement on my experience.

    You cannot purchase the USB cables anywhere, as Asus have not released them yet, and they cannot give a date for when the cables will be released.

    So I have a £430 tablet, which has died due to the lack of a cable. 

    I am commenting on this blog in the hope that I will win an Asus TF101 Transformer, as this appears to be the only way I will get a replacement cable without purchasing a whole new machine.

    Thanks Asus.

    Great to see it in action … it’s one thing to read about it but another to see a video review. I’d love to get my hands on one of these!
