ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Vs Apple iPad 2

Just recently, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer was released, and experts believe that this might
outclass the popular iPad 2 in a lot of ways. The iPad 2 is indeed a very sophisticated tablet PC
which is powered by Apple's iOS 4.3 system, while the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is a versatile
tablet operated with Google's new Android Honeycomb 3.0 OS, which can also be smartly
transformed into a laptop with a keyboard dock.

Both tablets seem promising, but which is better? To determine which tablet has the edge, here is
a face-to-face matchup between the two most amazing tablet PCs of the year:

Screen

The iPad 2 has a 9.7 multi-touchscreen display and a 1024 x 728 pixel resolution. The Asus
Transformer has a 10.1 touchscreen display with a bigger 1024 x 800 pixel resolution, but it has
an HDMI slot that allows users to watch HD videos on a larger TV screen.

Storage

The iPad 2 has a 16 GB, 32 GB and a 64 maximum storage capacity, and consumers can choose
any of these according to their needs. The Asus Transformer comes with a similar offer of an 8
GB, 16 GB and 32 GB storage capacity, but it comes along with a micro SD card slot for storage
expansion capabilities.

Battery Life

The iPad 2 has an expected battery life of 10 hours. The Asus Transformer also has 10 hours
worth of usage, but with a keyboard dock in use, you can conserve the battery life for up to 16
hours.

Applications

There are around 300,000 applications in the Apple market for iPad 2. Asus Transformer has less
than 200,000 applications available in the Android market. There are more applications available
in the Apple market, but many Android developers are keeping up with the pace.

Camera
The iPad 2 has a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera, along with a 720-pixel rear-facing camera.
The Eee Pad Transformer, on the other hand, is equipped with two larger ones: a 1.2-megapixel
camera in the front, and a 5-megapixel camera in the rear.

Software

The iOS 4.3 version powers the iPad 2, which functions amazingly fast. Safari browsing and
home-sharing with iTunes allows users to stream and transfer videos, music and movies to five
devices on the Apple network. The Asus Transformer runs with the Android 3.0 honeycomb
platform, which boasts of a new holographic design on the user interface. The Android platform
includes a customizable home screen, useful notification system, attractive widgets and great
multitasking functions.

Pricing

The iPad 2 has a tag price of $499, while the Asus Transformer costs $399-which is $100
cheaper. With the keyboard dock included in the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, the price is a far cry
from the costly iPad 2.

Verdict

The Apple iPad 2 and the Asus Eee Pad Transformer have shown several distinct features.
However, there are still many aspects that are yet to be considered like connectivity, browser and
speed but with basic features that are discussed above, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer might just
be a worthy contender against the unbeatable iPad 2.
