Asus Eee Pad Transformer

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is a tablet computer powered by Android released on March 30, 2011, with an optional docking keyboard. The device has a 10.1 inch multi-touch screen, a Wi-Fi module, but lacks 3G connectivity.

The docking key board was available simultaneously with the tablet. It has QWERTY keys, a trackpad, an SD card reader, two USB ports, and an extra battery for up to 16 hours of continuous use. The keyboards marketed in Canada have two additional keys, so the Enter and Shift keys were made smaller to accommodate them.

The original operating system was Android 3.1 Honeycomb, but was updated to Android 4.0.3 in February 2012. MyNet, MyLibrary, MyCloud, Press Reader, MyDesktop and Polaris Office 3 come installed. On April 16, 2011, an update for MyZine, a widget shop for weather, e-mail, calender, etc. was released.

On December 19, 2011, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime was released, being slimmer and lighter than the previous models. It had a rear camera with LED flash, quad-core CPU, micro-HDMI port, SD card slot, 14.5 hours of battery life, and a 10-inch display.

The different models are, TF101, TF201, TF300T, and the TF700T.

Accessories include mini HDMI cables, USB adapters, external card readers, screen protectors, sleeves, and other adapters.
