ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Review: Android tablet that offers no deception

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is surely one of the best tablets on the market to date and would appeal to consumers with its sturdy aluminium body, large 10.1-inch display (with scratch-resistant glass), preloaded with the company's proprietary apps such as MyCloud suite and MyLibrary, good features and performance. But that's not all. True to it's name, it can "transform" to a mobile computer with the optional keyboard dock and type your messages and navigate the cursor easily. On top of that, the dock also comes with an integrated battery that provides additional power to charge your tablet, as well as USB ports and memory card reader for your use. While getting the dock is one's personal preference, we feel that it would feel more complete to use the Eee Pad Transformer with the optional accessory.

On battery life, the tablet can last slightly more than a day on normal usage and a couple of hours more with the optional keyboard dock. Overall, the Eee Pad Transformer is responsive, and is great for multimedia playback. It is priced at an affordable S$699 (approx. US$560) for 16GB model and S$799 (approx. US$640) for the 32GB model. The 16GB ASUS Eee Pad Transformer with the keyboard dock is priced at S$799 (U.P. S$898 or US$720) during the promotional period. Considering its features, performance and pricing, we decided that the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer deserved the VR-Zone Editor's Choice award.
