Asus Eee Pad Transformer minus the keyboard dock. Getting a hold of the whole package has been a challenge, but today we’re happy to be sharing our first impressions of this underdog Honeycomb tab with its Xoom beating price and cool keyboard dock that transforms the tablet into a netbook.
IPS screen technology found in the iPad 2 and a high resolution of 800x1280 pixels, it’s safe to say the Asus Eee Pad transformer, with its Gorilla Glass screen jumps to the front of the queue as far as Honeycomb tab displays go.With a 10.1 inch display adopting the same
Inside, you’ll also find a 1GHz dual core Tegra 2 processor and 1GB of RAM as well as a 16GB internal SSD. With a microSD card slot on the tablet and a standard SD card slot on the dock, this opens you up to a whopping 80GB of potential storage, impressive right? As if that wasn’t enough, there’s a miniHDMI on the unit, a proprietary charging port and on the keyboard dock, 2 USBs and another battery to keep you going for up to 16 hours.
There’s a lot more to be said about this cool tablet in the full review. Keep an eye on phoneArena, it should be up in the next couple of days.

I think this device is the model for what the computer industry is going to transform into within the next few years. With windows joining the tablet race by the end of the year and rumors suggesting that Google's new chrome os will eventually be transitioned to become their prime tablet os it seems like a device like the Asus will become the nirm sooner rather than later.

I would not buy an Asus for anything. My school district bought 6000 Asus Eee computers. Within two years the keyboards are going down like crazy. Sure it's an easy $25 - $40 dollar fix. But multiply that by 6000 and then in 2 years we will have to do the same again. They really hurt the schools who are trying their best to get our kids affordable technology that can help them be prepared for the future. Asus has offered no help and think how much of the taxpayers money they made on a inferior product.
