Overall specification is awesome, but lack on 3G connection can be a deal breaker. Device is not ready for internet on go. Android OS lack support for USB internet dongle e.g., tata photo, reliance 3G...etc.
Asus tf101 is a great tablet with a minor screen issue. Its backlight bleeds ie when completely black you can notice some bright spots on the screen.
Mine was shipped with honeycomb 3.1which got updated to 3.2 instantly after connecting to internet.
Very responsive but becomes a little slow on connecting the keyboard dock.
Ips display is amazing.
Regarding screen bleeding, you can watch some videos on youtube too.
I'm using it from past one month and I'm very happy with it. According to me it's d best android tablet out der... and the best part is d keyboard dock which gives u 2 Full USB ports, in built extra battery that provides extra backup, memory card slot and the keys r very much spaced so tat it becomes easy to type making it a tablet/net book... if u r not a windows fan and wanna try an Android 3.2 Tablet dis is it... go for it...:-)
of all the tablet reviews i have read the asus was reviewed as the most productive use tablet since it also comes with a keyboard dock. 3g shouldn't be a problem either a mobile phone can be thethered to act as a wifi hotspot...so that he tab can connect to it thru wifi...or there are also ways through which the 3g dongles can me made to work..bruwse around android forms for that...
what i am concerned is SCREEN BLEED issues...people who have bough this tablet confirm did they had this problem when they bought it in india?
When the TF101 was released, it was undoubtedly the best Android Tablet around with nearly stock Honeycomb and the keyboard dock, after the release of Quad-core tablets like the TF201, it can't be called the best Android tablet but it definitely is the best Tablet for the price. With the new ICS update, it's now even faster, smoother and overall, better than it was with Honeycomb.
If you do decide to buy the TF101, shell out for the keyboard dock as well, as I've learnt, the extra battery life alone warrants the price let alone the fact that it makes writing long documents infinitely easier.
