What about the antenna problems that Michael H. pointed out did they happen to ask the vendor about that?

Dont get me wrong, I really love the tablet and hate all the stupid apple law suits, but from the front this looks VERY similar to the iPad 2

Once again they have issues with the radio and gps due to the fact they used a metal case. They know of the issue but yet refuse to address this. Why would anyone purchase a device that comes to the market with a major known flaw?

Because most people won't be using the tablet for Gps.

true but the radio signal is still vital for LTE networks and CDMA when not in a LTE zone. The radio and gps goes hand in hand and neither are standalone items.
so with a flawed radio due to the case design you will always have signal issues.

Isn't this WiFi only model? I don't think it has Verizon cell data radio.

2 months ago I wanted the original transformer....now I want the Transformer Prime! I like how well built it is and with the keyboard, this is a possible netbook or even PC replacement. I may be at a stretch with replacing the PC, but there are apps out there that have the ability to give a tablet the feel of a PC

If I get this, I need to get a wireless printer and call it a day
