ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Features Videos

"The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is seeing early action in the UK as we saw somebody unbox one the other day and now ASUS UK has their own walkthrough videos touching on various features of the tablet hybrid."

First video provides information on hardware features. Quite impressive!

I'm impressed by how rock-solid everything looks. It seems like the tablet really is locked-into the dock.

Game playing is quite impressive, excellent performance, and sound quality.

Lastly, some information on apps. Android Market is fully supported on this Honeycomb system.

Not a lot of information is available on release schedules for North America, but some early pricing shows that the tablet and dock will probably be sold and priced separately, with the tablet priced at about $400 for the 16GB model (about $500 for the 32GB model) and the dock (keyboard and ports) priced at about $150. ASUS appears to understand that they need to beat the iPad 2 and their Android competition on price, and offer compelling features to potential buyers. After looking at these videos, I personally think that this could be a very, very serious competitor in both the tablet and netbook markets. This is a likely candidate for my first Android device!

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Tablet/Notebook Hands-on

"After showing off the Eee Pad Transformer at CES, Mobile World Congress, and other shows, ASUS finally announced that it has launched the 10.1-inch tablet and the optional keyboard dock that effectively turns it into an Android-powered notebook.. The unique device features a 1280 x 800 display with 10-finger touch support, a speedy Nvidia Tegra 2 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of storage, and Android 3.0."

The hybrids are landing! Is it a tablet, or is it an Android notebook? Add an optional keyboard/dock to a Honeycomb tablet, and you have a very workable, powerful travel companion. Initial pricing estimates for the tablet itself (16GB) are in the $400-500 range, with the dock adding another $100. Details on North American pricing and ship dates are not yet available. Check out the video to get an idea of the speed and features of the Transformer, and note how well the two components work together. Impressive stuff!
