Just played with the Asus Transformer Pad 300

When I met sir Abe of yugatech.com (one of my idol in the blogging world) for the first time, it was an awesome experience for me. Such a very fulfilling one on my side, I don’t know but that’s how I just feel. He’s someone I just wanted to call a master. Plus, aside for the prize I got from the recent MyApps Mall blog contest, I got a pretty decent bonus, to play with the upcoming Asus Transformer Pad 300.

The Asus Transformer Pad was set to be released on the 22nd of this month. For the price, the price of the Asus Transformer Pad will be officially announced on its official launch date, on the 22nd, though we already had words about the pricing of this pad, still we are not allowed to disclose it until that date yet.

Here are the specs of this Asus Transformer Pad 300:

I do not know much about Android tablets, especially these Asus Transformer series. The only thing I knew about this Asus Transformer tablets are, it has dock-able keyboards so the tablet is a laptop/netbook as well. That was what I want to do with my netbook, as I was at some times, like to read webpages or even watch movies on my netbook while I am lying in my bed.

Asus Transformer Pad and Prime

They also got the Transformer Prime, so as to compare those two tablets. Not looking so closely, you can barely tell any differences. Though, there are a lot, so as to make the Transformer Pad, a cheaper tablet than the Prime.

The Transformer Pad is made out of plastic, while the Prime is on aluminum. The Pad is a bit thicker and heavier as well. The display seems the same, the Pad lost the camera flash. Sir Abe also has brought his The New iPad so as to compare it with the Transformer tablets as well.

I just got a short time playing with it, and indeed its worth it.

Here’s a better and much detailed story from my master himself, fresh from yugatech blog here.
