CeBIT 2011 VIDEO: ASUS Eee Pad Transformer tablet hands-on preview

Share


ASUS have had a strong tablet showing at CeBIT this year, with their entire range on display at the show. Perhaps the most impressive of all was the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer. We give it a quick play in the video above.

Though it’s called the Transformer, there’s little Optimus Prime style robotics on show here. Instead, the name refers to the optional QWERTY keypad docking bay the Transformer can pair with, allowing for hardware controls should you need to do intensive typing.

Running Android Honeycomb, the tablet is powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core CPU. We found the touchscreen to be incredible responsive to touch, easily the equal of the iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab, with swift multi-tasking and impressive video playback. While the argument for and against a keyboard for tablets rages on (you’re only a touchscreen away from a laptop at that point) we came away impressed by the Transformers slick, responsive touch controls, which made it far more user-friendly than many of the tablets we saw launched at MWC.
