> In reply to mix @ 2012-02-25 11:09 from miZk - click to readi 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.

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.

> In reply to fyi @ 2012-01-05 15:42 from tWgJ - click to readnvidia 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.

too bad that 3g version won't be released anytime soon. in fact, no statement from asus that they will produce the 3g ones, not even in their work plan yet. hopefully, asus won't regret this.

> In reply to Sensation @ 2011-12-05 17:45 from fqfP - click to readcan't agree w/ u. this thing has no usb port, only the docking port has. n if we hafta connect to docking port to use 3g modem, well why do i bother to buy this while i have my 13" notebook? u certainly dun wanna browse, while standing, w/ a docking port!

tablet is supposed to aim for its mobility. n wireless connection is not available everywhere during ur mobility. tethering is not a good enough solution cuz it'll consume both phone's n tablet's battery, while during ur mobility, u dun wanna have ur phone dead n can't make/ receive a call w/ it.
extra battery? too pain in the ass to always change ur battery.

n did u just say broadband w/ wifi router? outta question during traveling. the thing is u hafta know that not everyone's blessed w/ wireless connectivity anytime, n it won't hurt if asus can consider ppl w/ high mobility as one type of the prospective buyers.
