Reboot issue[edit]

As someone who experienced the reboot issue earlier this year, Asus released several updates a few weeks later and I did not encounter it again, before ending up putting Cyanogenmod on my device sometime after. Unless someone who still has the TF101 on stock to confirm or can reference evidence of it existing, I suggest it be removed from this article. 167.30.56.43 (talk) 06:19, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Hello! I have the TF700T model of this and I encounter random reboots when it struggles to do things. I'm not sure if this is unique to the TF700T model or if it can be triggered on other models.24.243.176.19 (talk) 11:59, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Image[edit]

i dont have privileges to add an image, kinda new to this, if anyone can please add.

Added that image for ya; well, going to soon. It'll be up fairly soon, Walkop (talk) 03:42, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Unfortunately that image could be replaced by a free one, as the product is commercially available. Free images (under the appropriate licence) can be uploaded to Commons under commons:Category:Eee Pad Transformer. -- Trevj (talk) 14:43, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

About the USB and SD card interface.[edit]

In section "Docking keyboard" At: "The USB ports support USB-Memory of any kind and also NTFS-formatted media with files larger than 4 GB. Also the SD-Card slot supports NTFS-formatted Media.[5]"

According to "SD_card", "USB_flash_drive" and my knowledge, the Filesystem support is a software feature or related issue and not a hardware specific feature or issue.

The storage media and corresponding hardware interface (the USB and SD in this case) are oblivious of the filesystem. The NTFS filesystem being, more or less, an exclusive Microsoft software feature.

I believe that the filesystems supported should not be mentioned in this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yo6ial (talkcontribs) 07:55, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

That depends on how you look at it, granted, accessing filesystems is a driver thing, but it may as well be part of the keyboard-dock, being in its own internal BIOS, as there was recently a flashrom update for the Keyboard-dock. Fact remains that the Asus Transformer's Keyboard-dock is capable of hosting & powering standard 2.5 SATA/IDE HDDs via USB-bridge and accessing formatted NTFS-filesystems on them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.163.64.43 (talk) 18:51, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101[edit]

Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101 review

3G / UMTS connectivity[edit]

Could sb. update the correct information? In the text we can read: "but lacks 3G connectivity; a 3G variant will be available in the coming months.[6] In a direct question to ASUS, Australian representatives stated that they are planning a 2011 Q3-Q4 release of the 3G variant. [7]"

It seems that there is a 3G version, but only with 16 GB memory, not with 32 GB memory:

http://www.toppreise.ch/index.php?a=244621 (Swiss webpage) http://eee.asus.com/en/eeepad/transformer/specification/ Doest anybody know, why? Does anybody know what the technical reason is for that strange decision?

For the next version "Prime" there is no 3G / UMTS version. Does anybody know what the technical reason is for that strange decision? http://eee.asus.com/en/eeepad/transformer-prime/specification/

Redirect from Transformer Pad Infinity is incorrect[edit]

The Tranformer Pad Infinity is the next generation after the Eee Pad Transformer and probably shouldn't redirect to this particular product Sniper Fox (talk) 13:55, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Merge discussion[edit]

I'm proposing that the Transformer Prime and any other variations of the Same Asus Eee Pad Transformer be merged into the main article. There is a new version TF300, which doesn't deserve its own page, but should be discussed as a section of this page. My model for this change is things like Thinkpad, Ideapad, iPad which has sections for variants, and model years, concatenated into a single, comprehensive article.

  • Merge Having multiple pages for Asus Eee Transformer tablet just because they have slightly different specs and model names is confusing for readers. David Spalding (  ) 14:00, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose - iPad has an article for its two most recent models. Marcus Qwertyus 08:50, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. Er, this isn't the Ipad? There's a lot let interest and coverage on the various iterations of the Ipad than for the Asus products. 842U (talk) 10:55, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Merge There's no point in having two articles; the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime article lacks a lots of relevant information that's in the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. There isn't enough information on the former to merit a separate article either. HuGo_87 (talk) 06:37, 10 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose - The iPad has an article per generation and so does the Galaxy S and the iPhone. --Mr link (talk) 14:47, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
Nowhere is it stated that iPad article should be used as a model for every other article. iPad articles are separated due they large amount of information they contain. Look at the amount of mobile devices listed here, for example, that don't even have an article. If you follow your reasoning, we should split all those into separate articles as well. Or al least each generation. It's only useful when a single article grows too large with too much information; this isn't the case here. HuGo_87 (talk) 18:24, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Merge ... for now. If the article becomes too large it can still be split up later. Right now I believe it gives readers a much better overview to have the TF101 (Eee Pad Transformer), TF201 (Eee Pad Transformer Prime), TF300T (Transformer Pad) and the upcoming TF700T (Transformer Pad Infinity) in a single article. -Ralfioni (talk) 14:12, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
    • Apparently there is already a third article available (TF300T). TF700T currently links to the TF201 page. I changed the page Asus transformer from a redirect into an overview page. This page could be a consolidated page with all information and a comparison of the models. -Ralfioni (talk) 14:46, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose - the text is long enough to have a separate article as it is with Samsung Galaxy Tab and Apple iPad tablet generations. --GreenZeb (talk) 13:27, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Comment - This article has enough length and notability to stand by itself, but other iterations such as the Asus Transformer Pad TF300T and Asus Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T) are too short to merit their own articles, so for the sake of keeping things simple and cohesive, I think it'd be better to merge all the Eee Pad Transformers/Transformer Pads (TF101, TF201, TF300, TF700T) into the same article (Asus Eee Pad Transformer), but the article title should be updated to something like Asus Eee Pad Transformer series. - M0rphzone (talk) 04:23, 29 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Different models, different articles. The name has also changed from "Asus Eee Pad Transformer ____" to "Asus Transformer Pad ____", so a single article would be misleading. Each has its own infobox (or needs to), and reception/review section with concurrent timelines, so a single article would be confusing, lengthy and/or messy. The reason why some people are referencing the iPad article (even though that's much more lengthy so a completely different case), is because the proposer, David Spalding, mentioned it as the model for his proposed change. Feudonym (talk) 01:21, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
Merge per Hugo. 1exec1 (talk) 17:55, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Merge ... for now, I came looking for information about the TF700T, but I think info about the whole range belongs here with sections for each model. If any model section gets too big then move it to it's own article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.134.160.234 (talk) 09:19, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose - Guys you definitely have no idea what you are talking about. ALL of transformers are different. Completely different. Lets make Wikipedia so people would find EXACTLY what they are looking for. Otherwise lets join WWI and WWII .. they only differ by 1 number! More pages more chances for people to find exactly what they are looking for. As mentioned above iPad does have a different page for each generation. And they differ by home much exactly? like what? 2-5%? Let transformer breath, it was a revolutionary tablet, compared to your iPad. 23:04 June 18, 2014

Custom Roms[edit]

please report if linux / ubuntu runs on the TF700T including a link to a working example — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.225.44.41 (talk) 12:12, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

This is is a wiki, you should do the research yourself, and edit the article/add the references yourself, rather than demand that someone does it in such a way. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hugo 87 (talkcontribs) 12:18, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Windows 7[edit]

A friend showed me a ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF101 and claimed it was running Windows 7. It was not, but had some attributes of Windows 8 (which I have no experience with). The confusing thing is that the screen wallpaper was Windows and several of the icons were Microsoft Windows icons or incorporated the Windows logo. Is this someone just messing with the GUI, or is there a Microsoft OS that can run on this platform?
If there is an official Windows OS for this device, or a hack to run a Windows OS, then perhaps this should be documented. I am not seeking support, but if alternate Windows (or other) OS can run on this platform, then this should be described and (ideally) if and how to set-up dual boot.

replace official page link with archive?[edit]

archived page is https://web.archive.org/web/20121215171706/http://www.asus.com/Eee/Eee_Pad/Eee_Pad_Transformer_TF101/#specifications. But I don't know how to update this. DSLeB (talk) 19:53, 13 September 2015 (UTC)
