Do i need a Simcard to use this device ? And how do i buy things through android ? credit cards ?
When I use the USB ports to connect a USB thumb drive, it works fine. If I connect my HTC Desire Z to it and set my phone to connect as a USB drive, the Eee Pad does not recognise it. All it does is charge my phone.

To connect it to a 3G dongle/adapter you have to use a Mifi (Mobile Wireless Router) like D-Link DIR-412

I just picked this up with the keyboard dock, it's running prefectly as far as I can tell so far, and it's got Androdi 3.2 installed. No issues at all. Runs smooth as silk. Highly recommend!
Amazingly surpised with this device.!Especially the screen and the design is amazing.
I believe that it is amongst the best hw/sw devices.

Mr Alertboy, 19 Sep 2011Warning!! To all owners/users of Aus Transformer 101. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT upgrade your un... moreI have one myself. I upgraded it to 3.2 when I got it and it runs perfectly smooth.
The newer transformer stock that is being sent out direct from Asus has 3.2 pre-installed.
Warning!! To all owners/users of Aus Transformer 101. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT upgrade your unit to Honeycomb 3.2. The current operating system (3.1) is perfect and all apps run smoothly and without a hitch. But the moment you upgrade to 3.2, disaster strikes. The tablet becomes slow and jerky, scrolling is slow and late to react, and almost every app that you have will begin malfunctioning. The tablet becomes absolutely useless, as you will not be able to run a single app. Even the live desktop backgrounds become slow and jerky.
I took the unit back to Asus but they were unable to roll back the OS to 3.1. (They tried very hard, but it didn't help).
So please stay with 3.1. The unit works perfectly with that and it is a worthy competitor to Apple iPad. But with Honeycomb 3.2 you will have a useless piece of kit on your hands.
I feel that the NVidia Tegra chip is unable to handle Honeycomb 3.2, but Asus is not admitting that. Google and other deice producers using Honeycomb have go to clarify this issue so that their cistomers don't fall into this trap. More importantly Google needs to either produce a fix for this or a way to roll back to 3.1.
Just got it recently, and loving it. With the optional keyboard dock it is really versatile, especially due to the 2 USB slots. The software is really good too. A really good device

1-this tablet has a full size USB or ... moreYou need to purchase the keyboard dock in order to get the USB ports. You get 2 of them.
The tablet has Google Maps included and access to the Android Market to download other apps.
If you want to get the tablet plus keyboard dock, I recommend the Eee Pad over the Galaxy Tab. I have seen poor reviews about the Galaxy Tab's keyboard dock. The reviews of the Eee Pad's keyboard dock have been good.

Personnally i would go with the Asus. With the Asus you can add a micro SD card wich you can't with the samsung.

Best Android tablet so far.
Screen very responsive and fast interface.
Keyboard dock turns it into an android honeycomb 3.2 netbook.
16 gig internal storage, 32 gig micro sd and 32 gig full size sd card (on dock) for a grand total of up to 80gig storage.
Just bought one, well impressed!! screen is very responsive and sharp and the docking station is a excellent add on
