Why would I even consider this piece of trash? No 3G means I don't care how cheap it is! Sorry big G, a big pass on this one. Will stick to Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1.
No 3G no sale, it's a simple as that.
If I wanted a device like the nexus 7 I would have purchased a kindle Fire.
Unfortunately the iPad is still king.
Yes it's cheap and the spec tells the story, poor screen, no hi res camera, very little storage, no GSM.
In all it's not happening.
No augumented reality =(
and no calls =(
But maybe worth it, still.
I'm sure Asus probably offered better terms than Samsung and besides the latter has a dangerous monopoly over the android eco-system already.
WJS, 27 Jun 2012Will this be available in the UK?Yeah it will be available in the UK, you can pre order it now, in the google play store
Anonymous, 27 Jun 2012Why Asus? Samsung have experience with tabletsAsus has been more successful in the tablet sector than Samsung.. there's no denial that Samsung has led the smartphone sector, but for android tablet, it has always been Asus..
Come on... With US$ 199 it suppose to be better, @least in Indonesia.
& it suck!
Will this tablet come to stores too? Or it'll be only avaible on the internet?
I was hoping that this tablet will have a micro sd card slot.but unfortunately it doesn't.I will buy the nova 7 elf 2 instead .
AnonD-58198, 27 Jun 2012asus has more tablet experiencebut this is low end tablet based on the specifications (Battery/Camera/internal Memory8-16GB) make me think of it as prototype only for testing maybe the only thing good is the Android version JB... one think for sure i will wait for the new Kindle Fire personally i dont care about the software version
To be honest I don't even know what is the need for poor quality camera in tablet, since everyone has phone with better camera anyway. I have galazy tab and I have never used the camera, and because of Samsungs totally crappy updating polizy I'm changing to this as soon as it's availeable.
nokia man, 27 Jun 2012oh dear bye bye ipad, this looks awesome. top spec and cheap. this will sell like hot cakes.I wish that would be the case but I doubt it will happen. I know it will be 100 times more useful.
