Email

Like many Honeycomb tablets, the Asus Transformer Prime TF-201 has a native email application that allows you to sync and operate your POP/IMAP/Exchange accounts via your tablet (it will guide you through setup). This interface is fine enough, and even though it is somewhat basic, it does the trick.

Also included with the Asus Transformer Prime TF-201's updated software is a GMail application, which merges the client's web redesign with the existing GMail app. While it does look a bit stretched, all of the basic functions of your GMail account are there, and fully functional.

Web Browsing

Google decided that their Honeycomb browser wasn't broke, so they didn't fix it. Users of Google's Chrome browser will love the browser on the new Android OS Ice Cream Sandwich. Not only can you make full use of tabbed browsing, but multiple windows, incognito browsing, bookmarks, history, and flash support make this browser a very nice and integral part of the tablet experience.
