lodcyder, 14 Oct 2011hi, usually in gsmarena for phone if it support OTG. it will list out. but this don't have. so... more1. Not sure about USB OTG as I don't use it. Only the keyboard dock has USB ports. You can stick a USB thumb drive on it. There seems to be some issues when trying to connect phones that can function as a USB drive. My HTC Desire Z doesn't work and also there are reports other phones don't work either. I have no problem with my USB thumb drive.
2. There is no micro-USB port on the tablet. To charge it you need to use the special charging cable that comes with the Eee Pad. That cable is able to plug into a regular USB port such as your PC. The Eee Pad also comes with a power adapter to plug into your power outlet. It has a USB connector for the charging cable. The charging cable end that plugs into the Eee Pad looks proprietary. It is a wide flat connector similar to the ones you see on Apple devices (but not the same).
3. You do not need a PC at all to use the Eee Pad. Just set up your WiFi connection and update your firmware.
4. I have had no issues with my WiFi reception. It seems the reception is better than my phone (HTC Desire Z) in certain corners of my house.
5. There is currently no 3G version. I have heard that there is one due out. The Transformer II is also supposed to be announced some time soon. I have no official links to confirm this.
hi, usually in gsmarena for phone if it support OTG. it will list out. but this don't have. so m very curious bout this.
1.) does this support OTG function? can it open external HDD?
2.)can i charge it through microusb?
3.) can i straightaway update its firmware in this tab without using laptop or pc.
4.) how is it wifi reception. is it strong.
5.) does asus comes out with 3g version?
i'm using my transfromer for about a week now and it's running 3.2.1 and no issues at all. the tablet is still the same when upgraded to ver. 3.2.1 and i'm perfectly happy with it.
Anoymous, 01 Oct 2011Do i need a Simcard to use this device ? And how do i buy things through android ? credit cards ? This is a WiFi only tablet, so no SIMM card is required or even possible.
Purchasing apps requires a credit card. Free apps do not need a credit card.

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.
Asus Eee Pad User, 24 Sep 2011hi, im using this tab and it has full size USB point on the right side of the keyboard dock an... moreSorry friends, i was misguided by the vendor.. the two USB ports on the keyboard dock are for file sharing and storage only..
To connect it to a 3G dongle/adapter you have to use a Mifi (Mobile Wireless Router) like D-Link DIR-412
