I’ve always been one of those whose thought tablets are pointless pieces of shit.
They haven’t been that much more powerful than the top mobile phones, so besides the bigger screen I haven’t really seen any major advantages. My claims aren’t entirely unfounded; I’ve had some firsthand experiences with both the iPad 2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10’1.
Frankly the iPad left me unimpressed, and basically confirmed my suspicions that it was a glorified iPhone. The Galaxy Tab gave a somewhat better impression, but was akin to an out of proportion Galaxy S2. Needless to say, neither device won me over.
Something was lacking, to me tablets just seemed like oversized smartphones .. minus the phone part.
The new Transformer Prime did catch my eye though. The powerful hardware, super IPS+ display, keyboard and around 18 hours of battery life simply put it a step above the competition. I wanted to get my hands on the device that, in previews, was basically touted as a cheap tablet PC.
