Asus Transformer Details (with Photos).

Plastic Back.  Not gloss black boring though.
One thing I hear often when there is a debate between iPad fans and competing tablets is that no one make devices as well as Apple.  Tech pundits who generally are also Apple fans dismiss the clever Asus Transformer as cheaply built. Here are a few photos I took of my Asus Transformer.  You decide for yourself.
Headphone, USB, HDMI, Speaker on right edge.
Volume and Power, Speaker along the left edge.

Dock and Latch slots on bottom edge

YouTube App Cylindrical View

This is just the tablet.  Click on most pictures to see an enlarged view.  Monday I'll be getting the keyboard dock that includes another battery to power the Transformer. Stay tuned.   I also have a showdown between the iPad2, Acer Iconia Tablet, and the Asus Transformer in the works. Links:

  1. Great! Can't wait for the showdown - I'm dithering between the Transformer and the Iconia.

  2. wow looks nice, Im gonna be buying one soon. Do you have the dock for it?

  3. do you have some problem with the built in microphone near the HDMI ?

    The microphone on my transformer sounds very bad and i don'nt know how to fix it



  4. I've only had a chance to test mine with one voice recorder app. My voice sounded pinched when played back. Didn't really expect it to be of great quality, but it does pretty well using it for voice search. No way to fix it but if you are not satisfied and it is a critical need then take it back and test a few other tablets and their mics.
