Asus Transformer Pad (TF300) Tablet Review
The Transformer Pad is a decent pick for buyers on a budget that still want a lot of bang for their buck.
Linking your tablet to your email accounts is very easy to do on the Asus Transformer Pad TF300, by using either the native Gmail app, or the separate email app used for POP3/IMAP/Exchange inbox formats. Both offer just about the same level of options and features that your normal email inbox has, though the Gmail app in particular does a lot to make the experience a rewarding one. Needless to say, you can also compose mail, and attach files that are on your tablet if you wish, and even download large files.
If you leave the sync option enabled on your Google accounts, your mail will automatically be sent to your tablet, which is a huge boon if you elect to use your tablet for this sort of thing. As pictured above, our intrepid robotic hero of the audio lab, HATS, has recently gotten his email hacked into in order to show what the interface looks like.
Android 4.0's stock web browser is a very sleek-looking, Chrome-esque program that allows you to browse the web with multiple tabs and windows. While many of the developer's options that are enjoyed in Chrome are absent, the level of control over your browsing experience is quite good, as long as you know how to call out the menus.
If you pine for the days when you could simply right-click a page element and call out a menu, you're in luck: holding down your finger on a page part for a duration of a second or two will call out a menu with all of your options. While most users are unlikely to need this option, it's still a good thing to have for those of you who like to save content, or use the full potential of the browser.
