However Opera works fine without any keyboard lag so I realy recommend you to use Opera.

Hope this helps.

I'm currently considering the Eee Pad and the iPad 2. The iPad 2 seems to have a better touch screen interface. I really like some of the gestures that I see in iOS that Android doesn't have. Pinch to zoom on a video automatically changes it to full screen. The gestures used on some web sites seem to do what I want more so than on the Eee Pad and other Android tablets.

I am familiar with Android, as I have an Android phone. Those advantages the iPad 2 has isn't a deal breaker for me. What I really like about the Eee Pad is the keyboard attachment. That's what is really drawing me towards the Eee Pad. I tried an Eee Pad at the store and found that on the Android Forums web site, the keyboard (virtual) lags a bit much like my phone (before my phone got a firmware upgrade). I'm thinking that a firmware upgrade would also resolve this issue on the Eee Pad. It's not a deal breaker for me as I probably would be using the Opera browser which doesn't exhibit this problem.

Just wondering if anyone experienced any lag when using the virtual keyboard. It only happened on that one site. Other sites are fine.

Hi, I'm still undecided between this and the Acer Iconia Tab. @_@

I like the keyboard dock option but it's a little expensive for the additional features it brings. . .

The only solution i can see. Is to go back to the store to get a replacement. You should have a 1 year garantee.

This weekend i went to a local store nearby to try this tablet. And for 399$, i was surprised by this tablet. I also tried the Moto Xoom and the Acer Iconia and BBerry Playbook.

Personally, i would go with this tablet without hesitation. I guess you get a good value out of it.

Have a nice day and please enjoy your summer !

It's mostly on this site because GSM Arena is growing to be more about mobile computing than about mobile telephony. Telephony is just a feature these days. Connectivity isn't an issue these days because, let's face it, 90% of us here would have a smart phone to tether it to, and there's any number of wifi hotspot solutions from pretty much every carrier. Only having wifi is hardly an issue, to me. Given that Asus have kept the price $200 cheaper than the nearest XOOM, I'd say it's a pretty good effort. The overwhelming sentiment from most reviews seems to be "I can't believe this has the same internals as the XOOM", referring to how quick and responsive the Transformer seems. The biggest criticism I see for it is the slightly wide bezel, to which I have to say "god, man up!". The Transformer dock is to be compatible with future models of the Transformer, so they added a little extra to the size of the current tablet, just in case they couldn't keep future ones down, and so the current tablet would match the existing dock in width, to keep it from looking too stupid.
