Asus Eee Pad Transformer Tablet Review
If versatility is your vice, you would do well to pick up the Asus Eee Pad Transformer.
The video controls for the Asus Eee Pad Transformer are the same as they are on many other Android 3 tablets, very much resembling the audio controls, except for the fact that they disappear after a second or two of the user not fiddling with them. On the bottom of the screen is a play/pause button and a scrub bar, allowing you decent control of audio playback.
Videos are managed through the "gallery" function on the apps page, allowing you to tap and browse through your pictures and video. Nothing too exciting here, but it does work fairly well for those looking for specific files on the go.
Keep in mind, that by very nature of the physical resolution of the device, that there are some files (any 1080p files) that the Asus Eee Pad Transformer will have trouble displaying properly. Though the H.264 is most likely where you'd run into this difficulty, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer can support.avi,.mp4, and h.263 files natively. If this isn't enough for you, the option always exists to download another app that contains codecs for additional file format support.
One of the more rewarding things about having a Google-blessed Android tablet is the access they have to the myriad of Google applications and services. Probably the highest-profile service, YouTube, comes installed on the machine right from the first time you start the machine up, allowing you to stream your favorite video clips straight from the web. Should you want to expand your horizons, there are competing apps in the market, and the Asus Eee Pad Transformer 's support of flash allows them to run without any additional software downloads or rooting your machine.
