ASUS Transformer

I bought one - its good, very good :)

The keyboard dock is particularly impressive - far better than the keyboard on my netbook.

I really like the look of them - I was sort of dithering between the transformer and the one with the slide out keyboard, and then didn't do anything.

I still think that the ideal size for a tablet is not 10inches - maybe 7 or 8 - but I liked the clip on keyboard too much to ignore.

I have not cycled it enough to get a real idea of battery life yet - but supposedly you can get 16 hours when used in the dock.

The keyboard will even pass its charge to the tablet, which is a neat idea - a recharge without a power point being there :)

yep - that will be most welcome - particularly the USB compatibility feature.

At the moment Honeycomb uses MTP instead of UMS - which means transferring files over a normal USB cable is a bit of a pain for Linux users.

Really nice form.  However, much as I like android it does limit the use of the device a bit.

Not sure I understand - are you suggesting that an Android device has its use limited because it uses Android?
