SlashGear Week in Review – Week 19 2011

Welcome to this week's edition of the SlashGear Week in Review. We had some interesting things going on in the tech world during the week. One of the interesting stories was the white iPhone and if it was thicker or not. Apple's Phil Schiller insists that the white iPhone is no thicker than the black one, but it does use a different sensor and camera design. The biggest news in the world this week was the fact that Osama Bin Laden was killed. One man unknowingly tweeted about the raid when it was going on mentioning a helicopter hovering, which wasn't usual.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Review

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Review

ASUS has been plugging away at tablets for years now, experimenting with convertible netbooks and trying to coax some semblance of finger-friendliness out of Windows. It's taken Android 3.0 Honeycomb and the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF101 to actually deliver, however: an eye-catching hybrid offering the touch-usability of a slate and the content creation flexibility of a Keyboard Dock. Has Eee Pad outclassed iPad 2 or do the ASUS Transformer's two halves not quite add up to a whole? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer vs Acer Iconia Tab A500

Motorola's XOOM had its chance to sweep the Android 3.0 Honeycomb market; now the low-cost slates from Taiwan are here to steal its thunder. Acer has priced its 10.1-inch Iconia Tab A500 tablet this morning at an iPad 2 undercutting $450, while the eagle-eyed spotted ASUS' Eee Pad Transformer at a mere $400 last month before the listings were pulled. Both are expected to hit the US later in April, but how do they compare?

Best Buy yanks ASUS Transformer iPad smack ad

Best Buy yanks ASUS Transformer iPad smack ad

Best Buy didn't call out the iPad by name in their ASUS Eee Pad Transformer promotion earlier this week, but the intended identity of their "generic" comparison tablet wasn't exactly well hidden. An iPad-style slate duct taped to a keyboard, the retailer was pushing ASUS' battery-blessed keyboard dock for the Transformer.

Best Buy mocks iPad in Eee Pad Transformer promo

You can't accuse Best Buy's marketing department of being afraid to shoot the golden goose. The company may be one of the few retailers to offer Apple's iPad 2, but that hasn't stopped it from taking pot-shots at the iOS slate in its new ASUS Eee Pad Transformer promotion. Showing the new 10.1-inch Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet paired with its nifty battery-toting keyboard dock, the retailer contrasts it with what's clearly an iPad taped to a keyboard with the headline "Like That. But Better."

Eee Pad Transformer landing this week in Taiwan

Eee Pad Transformer landing this week in Taiwan

It's rather refreshing to see a launch date moved UP for a change. I am used to seeing things get delayed for one reason or another. You might recall that Eee Pad Transformer Android tablet that turns into a netbook we spent a bit of hands-on time with back at CES. If you liked what you saw in that video the Eee Pad Transformer has had its launch date moved up to this Friday rather than April.
