no USB port?
I ordered the EEEPad Transformer last week, despite Ebuyer saying it was on pre-order and wouldn't ship til 1st June.
Arrived this morning and have left it charging while having a quick play.
Feels very slick. Android 3.0.1 on it, with the Asus keyboard utility which has a tap and swype version in one.
Haven't plugged the docking keyboard in yet but it looks a nice size keyboard to type on too.
I didn't want to go for an iPad (as the advert says, I don't have an iPad so I don't have an iPad) and I already have an EEEPC so like the Asus build quality. Definitely recommend it from the hour or so I've played
no USB port?
yup gave up on amazon and ordered on from comet on friday got it saturday.
Ive found a few apps that give me issues (mainly as i think they are written for android 2.x so the real radio one for instance just bombs i think its looking to hook into music player in a way 2.x supported but 3.x dosent) and google maps likes to just exit sometimes get to about where you want to go and get returned to the desktop.
Build wise its made like a tank looks like you could drop it and at worst make a mark (not that i have or am going to try it) the screen is clear and bright though i have 2 minor issues its impossible to keep clean and auto brightnes can be a bit odd.
it will stream divx's from my win7 pc over wifi quite happily audio and video are in sync and no stutttttter (using upnplay and rockplayer lite)
keyboard is good for a keyboard that size (its quite weird to see a device say charging when there is no mains plug)
so apart from a few apps not being geared towards honeycomb (and i think the last update to google maps on my phone is similar) its a good bit of kit polaris office even seems quite usable as well. Wondering if i should of hung on for a 32gb 3g version though but i can always shove an sd card (or 2) in it and tether it to my phone (in theory not tried)
ive just installed an RDP util too, so can now RDP to our servers and control them properly too.
haven't tested streaming media yet, will do that at home.
i do like the keyboard the more i use it. and i know what you mean about auto brightness, id left it on and thought "ill just see what full brightness is like" and nearly burnt my retinas out!
just need to find some active directory management apps so i can do password resets etc. i know impero is working on an android console app, so eagerly awaiting that

oooh great now I can order one to try!
If i ever get a job ill probably order one as i do like the eee build quality.
They look really good!
Barely use my laptop now, this has become my internet mainstay.
read some reviews on this yesterday, looks like great git, very nice UI. Always been a fan of android and having had a I-Phone 3GS, a G1 and G2/hero in that order my best phone has been the android units.
Most i've had is 4 days not using it much, but it'll go about 10 hours of constant use.
Constantly cleaning it tho.
