As you guys can see 3 of the Tabs specs are quite similar but still there are advantages in each individual Tab itself.
Let’s start with Xoom.


-  The 1st Tablet with 10.1 inch and The 1st Tablet equipped with Honeycomb.
-  Video and sound quality is superb compare to other Tabs
-  Receive updates faster than other Tabs

-          Heavy
-          SD slot not supported even though with the latest update v3.1 from Motorola
-          Difficulties to turn on the device because of the power button located at the back of the device
-          Laggy when scrolling around the screen even with Honeycomb v3.1

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

-          Lightest and Thinnest Tab yet
-          Smooth scrolling towards screen
-          Sleek Design compare to other Tabs

-          No SD slot
-          Back Camera only 3MP
-          Price are too high compare to other similar spec Tab
-          Weak Battery Life ( Rumors last about 4hours maybe related to the design itself )

Asus Eee Pad Transformer

-          With IPS screen
-          Got 2 SD slot ( 1 for Tab and the other on Dock Keyboard )
-          Good Battery Life ( Tab can last for 9 hours and 16hours with the docking )

-          Surfing the internet seem have problem etc beginning it’s ok but after awhile the page was slow or unable to load.
-          Quite heavy after connected to the dock (weight around 1kg )
-          Battery bug sometimes when connected to docking it will cause battery drain. ( Hopefully the next v3.2 update will solve this issue )

So here it’s guys the hottest Tabs that in the market right now. Specs and the current price are quite similar, what left is the design and user experience to judge with. May The Droid be with you guys and till next time!

Hard case bag for Asus Eee Pad Transformer.

Hi how Guys doing?? ok just now I was walking around in mall to look for my Asus Transformer case and guess what I found 1 costing around SGD 45.00. 

GenMob no idea what brand is this haha

Front look
This is a 10.2 table case so its fit pretty good .

Not Bad eh? ok will post again very soon ... Adios~

Asus Eee Pad Transformer

     Hi Everyone, for my 1st post I would like to do some review on the latest tab for Asus (Asus Eee Pad Transformer) which is quite popular in the state right now and arrive in Singapore around April. Ok lets FIRE UP!!

Model: Asus Eee Pad  Transformer

Display: 10.1 inch with IPS display and LCD screen

Touch Screen: Capacitive

Multitouch: Yes

Light sensor: Yes

Scratch-resistant Glass: Yes

Android Version: 3.1 Honeycomb

Processor: Dual Core,NVIDIA 
                    Tegra2, 1Ghz

Memory: 1GB RAM

 Sorry for the bad quality picture as I taken this picture by using my Desire. ok as you can see the box included both tab and the keyboard dock, unlike the U.S version they sold separately.          
I bought this is in Singapore so there're only 2 version which is 16gb with the dock and 32gb without the dock and both version cost around SGD 799. Only available wifi version and no 3G version in Singapore yet.

What's in the Box : Charger, USB cable and Manual  honestly I'm quiet disappointed because there so few stuff in the box)

Sleek design for both of the Tab and the Dock, it's also slightly heavier than some of the other tablets around. At 680g it's still not exactly heavy, and with the keyboard dock attached it feels about the same weight as a decent netbook.

There are two camera which located at the front 1.3 mp and back 5mp. The Quality of the camera and the video itself are NOT BAD at all and by thinking of it honestly who really care about their tab camera quality anyway? 


                                                      Indoor during Night time ( by the way this is not me hehe)

                                                   This is the video that I captured and ya it's running 720p.


The Battery life for the Tab can last for 9hours and when it connected to the dock it can be last for 15 to 16hours. There are also sd slot for both tab and dock which can supported to 32gb, 2 USB slot on the right and left side of the dock. 

My Comment:
For me it's really a nice Tab for daily use and it's different from others because of the additional keyboard dock that really helpful when doing some chatting or searching and ya it's run smoother than Motorola Xoom. For the price of SGD 799 it's really worth it. I really love the display , the colour are so crisp and it has the same IPS display technology with the IPAD 2. Really enjoying using this Tab so much and I'm giving this Tab a 4.5 stars. 

That's all folks for now. I will do another review about apps and games for this Tab and other junks in future time. Thanks for reading this and Have a nice weekend!!
