Internet Apps

Here it is: the wind under the wings of the Asus Transformer Prime TF-201 and all other Android tablets, the Android Market. Though it isn't quite as large as the Apple App Store, it does provide a very wide array of applications used to unlock the full potential of your tablet. Want to replace a function your tablet does poorly? There are applications that can do that. Want to use your bluetooth connectivity for off-label uses? There too. Want a new source for media and streaming content? You're covered.

The Android Market is unique in that it has thousands upon thousands of apps geared towards tens of different machines with capabilities that don't always overlap, but somehow still works on most machines. Because of this, which tablet you buy matters only in that you need to pay attention to what capabilities you want, but no matter what, you are covered by the Market.

Other Internet Features

If you'd like to stream content between your devices at home, the Asus Transformer Prime TF-201 has an included app called "My Net" which will allow you to stream content from networked devices to the tablet, or from the tablet to said networked devices. It's not a groundbreaking thing, but very cool nonetheless.
