yes it is much faster.
having said that the overall finish and build quality is terrible and their after purchase warranty support is terrible.
please buy this from a physical store and test it well in store to make sure you get a good one is all the advice i can give you.
to list a few
more batt lif with dock
sd card and micro sd card for large space amounts.
usb 3 port for wireless mouse other devices.
most countries dock have d/c issues and other issues like charge failures etc etc.
seems to be abandoned via asus considering they announced 4.4 for the padfones but left this device out of the list.
keyboard dock is made of plastic ???
when docked and upright it falls back as the plastic body of the dock can`t hold the device flat.
stock software (is possibly stable, the screen still changes brightness too much for my liking) mine reboots a lot for no reason. however it`s away for it`s 4th trip to asus and they still refuse to replace it. so the rebooting could be related to my tab being one of the many fail devices out there.
i`m just being 100% honest here.
Please try it at a store as the idea is great and should be a top competitor against ipad and Samsung tabs but asus`s execution and build quality let it down.
