Asus Transformer (US) Preorder/Future Review - Page 4

post #31 of 74
Got another question- Can it charge through USB while using it? Secondly, how does typing feel with the on screen keyboard? Maybe compare if youve used a xoom or ipad/2 and then a standard keyboard. Im a fast type and if its awkward I may end up buying a keyboard for either device (the keyboard/dock if I get the asus).

No it does not have USB charging options, however it most certainly can be used while charging

The typing is done on a Chicklet style (read iMac keyboard). It isn't very easy to type, my wpm went from around a 70wpm to low 60s. But that was using a similar chicklet style on the Toshiba Protege 750 laptop. I will do an analysis of the dock once I get it. In the mean time anand techs review goes indepth with the keyboard, it's usage an feel. I have used the original iPad extensively (my mother owns one and a keyboard dock for it) aswell as a few hours of usage of the ViewSonic Gtablet and 15-20 minutes of usage of the Motorola Xoom, also used the Galaxy Tab with it's keyboard dock (Whigs was awful)

When I do the keyboard review, I will compare it to my standard rubber dome keyboard, the Microsoft SideWinder x4

Sub. I've been eying this tablet after seeing those at awful commercials a few weeks back. Luckily, I stuck through it.

It looks like an excellent replacement for my netbook which was exactly what I wanted at the time, basic and mobile computing power. Waiting on your thoughts after purchase Spykerv.

I'm a horrible person I know.... But there may be a delay in purchasing the tablet. I'll buy it tomorrow thats for sure, but my ride bailed on me, and while I could easily drive there illegally (waiting for the appointment with the DMV, coming out in 4 weeks) i rather not risk it. I'll be purchasing at the local walmart hopefully which is in walking distance (best buys like 10 miles away) or purchasing online.

Sorry if you gives hoped for a review on release date, I'm extremely sad myself, more so than you guys can imagine. But you guys will have it, and it will be indepth, so ask me what you guys want and keep making suggestions, I will deliver.

Its okay I actually went to my BB today and played with one. I love the aluminum body, I dont like the weight and size though Weights just about the same as the Xoom IMO. Felt very fast, loaded videos faster than the xoom.

What I didnt like too was the front facing camera. With it being off centered, when you go to take pictures or video with it, youre off center so you either have to angle it or hold the tablet off to the side.

I found out that it can support external hard drives, and you just need to format it to fat32.

Well according to one of the comments in the post you linked, retailers won't even have any listings till tomorrow. I hope this is at least true.

Anyways, let me know if you need any help with testing anything when I get mine from Amazon as well. Whenever I get it...

Do you know where I can get a case similar to this?

It is around 4:20.
