Email

Included in the Android 3.2 OS is a Gmail application, as well as another email client for POP/IMAP inboxes if you choose to manage them outside of your browser. Both interfaces are well-laid out, allowing you to read incoming emails, or compose and send your own. It does waste quite a bit of white space, though, and you really don't need that kind of screen area for many of the functions, but we've yet to see a client on a 10-inch screen that we're fans of aesthetically speaking.

Web Browsing

Browsing the web on the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is about as simple a process as you can ask for on a tablet, as Android 3's browser is very minimalistic and streamlined, while retaining many of the more popular features like bookmarking and recording page history. In addition, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer supports flash (while Apple still has yet to embrace the ubiquitous file format), and allows you almost unfettered access to popular online media.
