While Android 4.0 is the best version of the OS yet, unfortunately for the TF700, it still lags behind iOS in app support. Things have improved over the last few months, with Android getting some big game releases like Max Payne Mobile concurrently with iOS, but for every Max Payne Mobile, there are tons of great iOS games being released on weekly basis. Google still has its work cut out for it in soliciting more app developers, especially those willing to take advantage of the Tegra 3 processor.
At $500 for 32GB and $600 for 64GB (that's without the dock, with pricing subject to change before the July launch), the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 effectively replaces the Tranformer Prime in its price range. While the iPad is still the best overall tablet on the market, the TF700 succeeds despite the current Android market's lack of support and is the choice for those looking to take the premium Android tablet plunge. Those who already own a Prime, however, will be better off saving their money for the next Transformer iteration.
As we hinted at earlier, the best thing about the TF700's keyboard dock is that, well... you don't necessarily need it. Back when we reviewed the mid-range Transformer Pad TF300, many readers were upset to learn that they couldn't re-use their OG Transformer dock, meaning if they wanted to upgrade they'd have to buy a new tablet and a new keyboard, to boot. Here, there are no such compatibility issues: the TF700 will work with the dock belonging to the original Prime. That's good news for fed-up Prime owners who've had enough of the GPS issues but don't have a reason to trade in the dock, per se.
That 8-megapixel camera is also capable of recording 1080p video, and we were similarly pleased with the level of detail in slower-moving clips. Unfortunately, though, you're likely to notice some ghosting once you start recording more high-octane scenes, like bicyclists riding by at a fast clip. As for audio quality, we appreciated that the dual mics picked up on background noise such as conversations and street music, but unfortunately they don't do nearly as good a job canceling wind noise (or, in our case, the sound of a mild breeze).
You know who hasn't given up on $500 tablets either Toshiba, of all companies. After striking out with its Thrive lineup, the company has mostly found its way with the Excite 10, a $450 tablet that offers longer battery life and a slimmer design. Without question, it's the best tablet Toshiba has made to date, but is it the best Ice Cream Sandwich tablet at this price Not really -- not when you take into account the Excite's performance hiccups and lackluster camera.
If it is a crisp display you're after, you'd be foolish not to at least consider the new iPad: For the same money, it offers a stunning 2,048 x 1,536 panel -- and it doesn't suffer from as many performance hiccups as the TF700 either. Still, if you're in the market for a new Android tablet, specifically, the TF700 should absolutely be on your shortlist: It's among the best Ice Cream Sandwich tablets you'll find at any price.
I bought my Infinity TF700T some 11 months ago. Sorry to say have had a lot of trouble the tablet has been back twice to Asus. Once for the tablet (new screen etc) and then for the keyboard. Having lost all my info during this. I want to transfer all info from my old PC again what is the best way of doing this A MicroSD card I would also want this info stored on the card.
Not to worry - Crackling sounds are actually normal for tablets as they heat up and cool down during use. The glass screen and case components are actually expanding and contracting. You may want to try a reset to factory defaults to refresh your tablet as well. Be aware that you will lose all the information that was previously stored. So this is a complete system refresh. With Android tablets, it is not uncommon that one of your loaded \"apps\" is creating a problem as well. Please contact ASUS directly for technical support in troubleshooting and remediating the issues you are experiencing.
As far as AT&T goes there must be an app you are using that is requiring a subscription that has expired. Carefully check the apps you are currently using and determine which ones may have expired. Another possibility may be that you have exceeded the amount of downloads allotted under your AT&T service agreement via W-Fi if AT&T is your internet provider. In that case - please consult AT&T for the remedy.
Mercury seems to have best responses, although Firefox does fine also. Just downloaded Mercury maybe 2 days ago so I'm still learning how to use it. Its good speed assures one it's worth the learning curve.
The sides of the tablet were a bit loose and I even included that in the complaint, their tech guy was so arrogant that he even stated that he is the last person who gives the decision and he's the dead end for my case. Talk about VIP treatment. PSH.
I have the screen crack issue too, exactly as described. There seem to be a hundred or so reported cases, fortunatly, in the UK and posibly the EU, the place you purchased the device from is responsible for the warrenty and within the first year they have to 'proove' it was your fault, and with 100 other cases being reported exactly the same, I don't think they could do that.
I love my new asus tf700.One thing not mentioned here that might be of intrest for gamers is that i u have the dock u can connect a xbox controller.Say if you want to use it on one of the many emulators.,But the battery is subpar, 9,5 hours is a dream u wil never reach. And the sound is good, but very,very badly placed. They are stereo but with only one speaker located on one side...And there is a construction error in the casing. Never lift it in the top left corner. Do it often enuff and the screen will crack, especially if its in the dock. And that prob is void warranty as asus knows this and says only to lift it by the bottom.So get one and be rly carefulwith it.It is awesome though.
The Transformer Prime (or TF201 if you're nasty) had its share of GPS problems when it first came out. So much so that the company began sending out dongles to fix the issue. Well, that didn't prevent a class action lawsuit from being filed and, as a result, ASUS has settled the case. What does that mean for you Well, if you purchased a TF201 between December 1, 2011 and February 19, 2013 and you didn't get a refund, then you qualify to receive $17 and a free GPS dongle.
With the flagship Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700) release right around the corner and the release of the budget-oriented Transformer Pad (TF300) a few months ago, Asus has filled out it's line-up of 10\" quad-core Android tablets. Obviously, most people would opt for the highest of the high-end (that'd be the TF700) if they were just looking to blow money. Unfortunately, most people aren't just looking for ways to spend as much money as possible, so instead, they spend enough to cover their needs.First, I've provided a handy-dandy chart to let you compare the major (and some of the minor) talking points of each tablet. Next, I'll run through a list of the big pros and cons for each, then copy and paste in the conclusion from my review. I've also provided links to the full-length review of each tablet, in case you need more details or want to get a (hopefully) clearer impression.

We field tested five of the most popular consumer tablets currently on the market to determine which ones make the best mobile photo accessories, and which ones are only good for flinging colorful birds at those meddlesome pigs.
Not mentioning any PC based tablets in the above article is a travesty. Not only can you run the full version of Photoshop, but with a tethered USB connection, using PC based software often included with the camera (in my case 5D MKII), I can exert complete control over many of the camera settings (eg. aperture, shutter speed, shutter release). Effectively making it a remote control on steroids. What a puff piece ( _piece).
Which is the best PP software for tablets now though If it is best value for money on Android from the market then I would look there myself. iPad's resolution is tempting, but you are paying \" premium poser price\" for the glory of the bitten fruit logo.
Misleading title or is it just me I was expecting they were focusing on connectivity with dSLR/SLT/Mirrorless cameras (to serve as a remote viewfinder for either monitoring or capturing), reviewing images (for example, in a photoshoot in a remote site, using the tablet to review images without interrupting the workflow) or processor capabilities to make small edits of full size pictures (and how long it takes to do the same photographic tasks between tablets), serve as backup unit for images (how long it takes to write a certain amount of data) and what tablets offer the best option serving as digital portfolio.
You'll want to take a look at DSLR CONTROLLER. Works perfectly with the google Nexus 7. This combination sets THE standard for how we should be using these tablets in the field. The app is android only, which is a shame as the Ipad retina screen is best but the form factor (and price) of the nexus 7 is actually preferred for this application. Here's some feature's, and it's only in Beta. (the light weight of the Nexus allows me to attach it to my tripod using a manfrotto nanoclamp and a belkin fat gecko.) The 7\" tab actually fits in my pocket and camera bag so I actually take it with me!
I just bought a tablet from CostcoIt runs all of my windows photo programs like Adobe. Plus it has a built in protective cover and an attached keyboard for quick typing. It also had a 256gb hdd, to easily store all the photographs I could ever take on a trip, and best of all, it only costs about $289. It's called a netbook. 59ce067264
