Default Transformer wins Gadget of the year.

Beating iPad2.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-15559778

Braindead media experts are in shock that their beloved Apple did not win it.

However anyone with any sense already knew this. I mean the Transformer beats the iPad2 in every respect.

* 7x the camera megapixel count.
* 20% more screen resolution.
* USB2 ports
* Dock with double battery life
* Lower cost

A win for great technology over average technology and slick marketing.

"Despite the iPad 2 being a finer tablet in the purest sense, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer offers so much more," Stuff's consulting editor, Simon Osborne-Walker, told the BBC.

:/ ifag much?

but seriously the TF deserves it

Asus is expected to launch a successor hybrid device within the coming weeks. Analysts say the new version is likely to include a faster processor and the latest version of Google's Android system.

are these so called experts living under a rock or something?

I'd love for them to define how it's actually "finer tablet in the purest sense,"..

I mean if any other company launched a tablet with a main camera with a pathetic 700k pixel camera, when even cheapo smartphones have 5Mpixels camera, they would be absolutely slated.

It's a vicious cycle of course, all these "experts" only know iPad2, because they simply can't be bothered to look elsewhere (and many of them get complimentary review iPad2 units to keep, so why bother..), so just assume that it's the best because it's best selling, and it's best selling just cements that further...

No ****, I'm married to one. She won't even consider Android anything anymore. She has made it clear her next phone will be the iPhone 5 and we sold the iPad and she is using my Transformer and bitches about it EVERY SINGLE DAY demanding she get an iPad 2. Yet...one of the main things she wants to do is Skype (with family) which is much better on the Transformer due to the camera but she just doesn't get it. Oh, did I mention she has never even used an iPhone before, but she said she just knows its better...

So, in an effort to stave off a domestic violence situation and/or divorce...we are buying a stupid iPad 2 today.

I love her in every other way...but her understanding of technology is a disappointment. I guess no one is perfect...well...except us here in the forums.

Who will pay? If you then do not buy! Ask him why Apple is the best and if the answer is so foolish, he is a believer in Apple. Apple fan boys and girls are the worst. Android is in many ways better than iOS.
