Default ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Tablet/Notebook Hands-on

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://blog.laptopmag.com/asus-eee-pad-transformer-announced-handled-on-video?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+LaptopMagazineNews+(LAPTOP+Magazine+-+The+Pulse+of+Mobile+Technology)' target='_blank'>http://blog.laptopmag.com/asus-eee-...ile+Technology)</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"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."</em></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/V6HrifUusMg&amp;feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/V6HrifUusMg&amp;feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" /></object></p><p>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!</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
