Music & Audio Controls

Using Google's Music app, the Asus Transformer Prime TF-201 allows users to store and sync their home music library with their tablet anywhere they have an internet connection. You can also store your music on the tablet, but for those of you with music collections that take up several gigabytes of space, this is a nice feature.

The control interface is the same, simple interface that graces Honeycomb tablets. You have advanced playlist options, a play/pause button, repeat/shuffle icons, a scrub bar, and prominently displayed cover art. You can also sort your music just about any way you want with a very visually appealing interface.

Music & Audio Management

As far as managing your music goes, there are a few ways you can do it. For starters, recently played tracks can be flicked through via a cover flow (pictured) that calls to memory what it was like to sort through a huge pile of CDs or records. You know, without all the swearing.

Music & Audio Battery Life

The Asus Transformer Prime TF-201 managed to play back audio for 24 hours straight without a recharge, but that's mainly due to the screen automatically shutting off after a minute or two. You're probably not going to be using this as a dedicated MP3 player, but just know that if you do listen to music, it's not going to increase the load on the battery all that much.
