One of the coolest Android 3.0 tablets around

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Gets Official

We have heard a lot about the cool Asus Eee Pad Transformer for a while now. The little tablet was spied back during CES and now Asus has gone official with the thing. If you have missed all the other coverage, this little Android tablet can be attached to an optional docking station that turns it into a small netbook.

The Transformer will run the Android 3.0 operating system and it packs in Tegra 2 dual-core processor for power. The 10.1-inch screen uses IPS technology and Gorilla Glass for rugged durability. The viewing angles on the tablet are 178-degrees and the screen resolution is 1280 x 800.

The tablet has SRS sound technology and is only a hair over half an inch thick and weighs 1.49 pounds. The front-facing camera for video chatting and calls is a 1.2MP unit and the rear-facing camera is a 5MP camera that can record HD video. The tablet also has a HDMI output so you can shoot video content out to your big screen.

That optional dock has a full QWERTY keyboard and has Android function keys to allow the keyboard to operate the Android OS. It has a touchpad underneath for controlling the cursor, a 3.5mm headphone port, dual USB ports, and an integrated SD card reader. The docking station also has its own internal battery making the Transformers already impressive 9.5 hour battery life even better at about 16 hours.

Other features of the tablet include 1GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of storage, 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and 3G is optional in some areas. It has a g-sensor, light sensor, gyroscope, e-compass, and GPS. The tablet measures in at 10.6" x 6.9" x 0.51" with the battery installed. The normal battery is a 24.4Wh lithium polymer unit.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
