Hey guys, I'm considering whether to get an ipad3 or eee pad transformer prime? any opinions?
I don't see face unlock function in 4.0.3 (ICS) update.
may be I'm so blind and didn't notice that function.
Can someone suggest for me, how to config face unlock?
thx for answer.

i want to buy this tablet
but I have 2 question
can I buy a dock for it after buy the ta... moreyes you can buy the dock after you buy the tablet only if in tablet package isn't including the dock.you can separetly buy the dock for 150 dollars i think depend of the market.you can choose the color to match the color of the tablet.and when you're buying the dock make sure you don't buy the previous dock for the older version of transformer,you would be able to see the picture it is slimmer for the transformer prime and it's not made from plastic it is from aluminium.best wishes
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2012Wireless tethering to your phone... why do you need 3g in a tablet and your phone.seriously, guys.. pls read my previous opinions first about tethering b4 u make repeated comments on why i need the 3g version.
i simply dun prefer tethering/ making my phone portable hotspot cuz it will also consume my phone's battery. i'm mobile most of the time while there won't be any free wireless n i dun wanna my phone dead due to tethering cuz i need it to receive/ make a call, that's why i need a tab to do other things like browsing, gaming, etc so that i won't have my phone dead while i'm mobile.
n extra battery isn't good solution 4me cuz it's a pain in the ass to always change ur battery in the middle of sumthin'.
that's why i need 3g version badly. i dun care if i have another 3g internet for my tab cuz i dun have any contract whatsoever in my country, only need to pay $10/ month. wireless isn't everywhere here.
mix, 25 Feb 2012For what you need 3g version?
If you have cellphone with wifi you can make hotspot, you dont ... morei dun like tethering cuz it will consume my phone's battery also n i'm mobile most of the time. u certainly dun wanna have ur phone outta battery when u're mobile n u wanna make a call/ message just bcuz u use it for stupid tethering.
then why should i buy another tab for browsing n other things besides calling/ messaging if i'm gonna use up my phone's battery along w/ it? better use my phone only then, if u get what i mean.
for me, it's better to have another 3g internet cuz it's cheap here, only $10/ month. we dun have any contract whatsoever in my country.

and if I buy a dock for it can I connect dock to the tablet?
Transformer Prime wins over iPad 3 in every aspect except screen quality. Wonder which I'll buy. $499 for them is a great price.
Would have considered if there was a 3g version. Heard it has some wifi and gps issues. I'm happy with my galaxy tab 10.1
Excellent tablet. Played around with the iPad and Galaxy Tablet. The Transformer Prime's performance trumps them all. The design is beautiful. Build quality is top notch. Love all the ports. Display is vibrant. And then there's ICS. A pleasure to use.
had two of these units and they were both as glichy as eachother. I returned both of them. Poor wifi, no gsp reception and a host of other faults. Returned it to the shop and got the samsung galaxy tab 10.1 and i have never looked back. Dont get fooled by specs, not all its cut out to be. A new samsung fan.
fumozhe, 23 Feb 2012can't agree w/ u. this thing has no usb port, only the docking port has. n if we hafta connect... moreWireless tethering to your phone... why do you need 3g in a tablet and your phone.
fyi, 05 Jan 2012When you say 1.3 ghz quadcore, you dont get x4 1.3 ghz cpus, instead, you get 4 cpus clocked a... morenvidia tegra 3 has a total of five cores in it in which 4 are high performance cores and 1 is an companion core. when a single core is active the core runs at 1.4ghz and when a maximum of 4 cores are required by the application the each core runs at a speed of 1.3 ghz. its not like each core adding up to make 1.3ghz. if it was like that then the android interface will lock up and lag heavily and also the application which doesnt have multi core support they will perform like shit in this resolution. the only way the interface stays this smooth is when each core above 1ghz. main thing is that androids main ui doesnt require multiple cores and it even doesnt call up multiple cores when there are no application running. only application optimized or support multi core processing calls up multiple cores every others applications just uses an single core running at 1.4ghz. the power management for the cores are done by nvidia firmware on the nvidia soc its not the android that doing that. there are very few application on the market that makes use of 2 cores or even less when making uses of the full 4 cores. you can find that tf101 and tf 201 perform almost same on ics when its running just the ui and no background tasks. u will find tf201 much fluid bcoz of the speed bump and there is also and bump on the gpu but thats not much.
apple's hardware also works in the same principle.as far the graphics performance goes power vr SGX543MP2 is essentially two sgx 540. sgx 540 considerably higher performance than the geforce ulp in tf101. the geforece ulp in tf201 has an speed increase but it has not surpased the sgx540 it will be the almost the same.
its an very fine piece of hardware and nvidia has done a very good job with the power management in the soc.
as far as the graphics benchmarks go its just a difference of mere 1-3 seconds and 2-3 fps it doesn't make a difference on the end user. i just useful on the paper or argument purpose thats it.
