    Reading on a ASUS Transformer...

    Hi

    I am confused...

    I just spent a day with the iPad2 and a Galaxy Tab (the first edition) have to say I was very impressed with reading PDF books from the iPad but not so much from the Galaxy which is running 2.2

    I am Android through and through and want to stick with an Android but want the experience I had with the iPad2 when it comes to reading ebooks from it.

    I have been looking around and the Asus Transformer looks impressive with a decent price.... I also know it has Honeycomb as I understand its more tailored for tablets than the previous versions and the experience is far better. Much better than what I have used with 2.2. One thing from my research that lets Android down is there are not many apps which are tablet ready but slowly this will come.... That's not too much of an issue for me as my primary use will be ebook reading and internet use.

    I dont see the point in buying just an ebook reader, for a few extra hundred I can get something which will offer a lot more and features that I would make use off.

    If anyone uses the transformer as a book reader. What are you thoughts?? Is the experience good. I held one the other day in a shop and it felt initially quite bulky but I suppose I could get used to that....

    Thanks

    i prefer my kindle for reading on the screen is just much easier on the eyes being e-ink rather than the transformers lcd. Having said that it does a good job of pdfs ive found. personally if i had to give up my epad or my kindle the epad would go with no hesitation
