Asus began showing off this amazing piece of hardware some while ago, but I doubt if anybody has paid much attention to it. If you’re one of those, then stop what you’re doing and start reading this, because this is one awesome gadget that I’m sure you’d love to own. It would be wrong if we call it a Tablet, because it is also a Netbook! Confused?
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is both a tablet and a netbook, thanks to a docking system that converts the otherwise only touch tablet into a netbook. The Transformer, wisely named, is not just a cool looking gadget as it also packs in some Nvidia Tegra 2 processing power and the wonderful Android Honeycomb 3.0 operating system.
Asus finally decided that they’ll be launching this mean machine at the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Launch Event in the coming week and we’ll update you about the pricing and availability then. Until then read below the amazing specifications of the Eee Pad Transformer:
Asus Eee Pad Specifications:
- 10.1 inch IPS LED Display with 1280 x 800 resolution
- Nvidia Tegra 2 Dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM
- Android Honeycomb 3.0
- 16/32GB of Internal storage including unlimited ASUS WebStorage
- 5 mega pixel rear camera with HD video recording, 1.2 megapixel front camera
- Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2,1 + EDR, Card Reader, USB output, mini-HDMI output port
- 9.5 hours battery backup for the tablet and 16 hours with the keyboard attached.
This is ASUS’s first tablet running Android Honeycomb. The Eee Pad Transformer, despite it’s rather long name, will definitely try to compete with the iPad 2 in terms of performance and pricing perhaps. Will this be able to de-throne the Apple iPad when it comes to sales? We’re not sure if the package includes the docking system too or will it be the case of the Motorola Atrix 4G. We’ll update you soon enough once we find out more. Also watch the advertisements released for the Eee Pad Transformer after the break mocking the Big Bang Theory TV-show.
