[INFO] For those still undecided - my first thoughts mini review
Unit arrived yesterday.
Initial thoughts .....
Honeycomb/Transformer is a very quick combination. everything seems very smooth. Spotted a few bugs in the OS (and a few areas of foreign wording) but these arent huge bugs.
Web browsing is great on the large screen. Rotation is slick. Took a while to get used to the new Honeycomb layout but it now seems intuitive.
The unit is solid. not noticed any screen bleed (although i do have a fine 'gap' between bezel and screen on one side but not enough for me to return it).
HDMI out looked great when connecting iPlayer to a 46 inch TV. Movies look good on the screen due to the extra width - nice widescreen view and room for any menu underneath.
Battery is very good. Trying to run it down fully after the first (8 hour) charge and it lost very little (if anything at all) overnight.
The screen is stunning - although i find it a little dark on the 'auto-brightness' setting but thats personal taste. Very clear and very crisp.
Photo viewing is very quick.
Most apps that i used on my HTC Desire work great - using the same Google ID downloaded all my apps (including paid ones) to my Asus. The web market also instantly recognised my new kit and would ask me which item i wanted to download the item to (desire or ASUS). One or two apps dont stretch to the full screen but im sure the devs will sort that soon.
Camera seemed fine. im not on the latest build (that got pulled) but ive not noticed a huge shutter delay on the rear camera. High quality video was admittedly a bit stuttery but i believe that can be fixed.
The charging cable IS a little short ....
eBooks look fantastic
Even PDF format ones !!!
Music is great - the speakers are pretty loud considering their size (obviously they are never going to replace an Amp !!) and i havent spotted the balance issue that some have.
All in all im very impressed !
Saying "Thank You" is free and only a button-click away ....
