Love it! 08/18/2011
1. light sensor can adjust backlit and it can use in the blight sunny day.
2. light (1.42 lb).
3. super easy and non-destructive upgrade the firmware.
4. supports external memory card and hdmi for TV.
5. free Polaris Office 3.0 office suite comes with the device. Polaris Office is very compatible with Microsoft Office file and you can control and scale the fonts with your fingers. It opens and read PDF files much faster and is much easier to use than Acrobat Reader from Adobe.
6. wide screen and picture quality is excellent.
7. Cheaper than the fruit brand and has a lot more features, and it can multitask unlike that fruit brand.
1. the two cameras are kind of so-so. Good enough for webcam kind of use, but not much else. But I don't really care for it.
2. When use the device to play music, it goes to sleep after a while. If you want it to continue to play, you need to touch to power button to wake it up. It would be nice to have an option to turn the mediate player into an endless whining machine. I think this is an Android 3.x issue and is not specific to Asus.
Upgrading the firmware is super easy. The device downloads the image in the background and lets you know there is any update and ask if you want to proceed. You can proceed with the upgrade or postpone it. After upgrading the firmware, all of your configurations and customizations are there untouched. No need to redownload any software, no need to change anything.... it just works. Very nice! I bought this bad boy at the beginning of June and have been using it on my commute everyday, and a lot of times, I use it at home to do some light web browsing, and for watching youtube. Highly recommended.
