Tech Tuesday: More than Meets the Eye

So after much waiting and a lot of page refreshes, I was able to put in an order for an Eee Pad Transformer last Thursday.  Unfortunately in my haste (it's been selling out within minutes of it being in stock) I selected 3 day shipping.  Well with the weekend away it finally arrived today!
So far it's awesome!  Everything I hoped it would be.  The tablet is actually lighter than I thought it would be and the screen is very nice.  Of coures, Android 3.0 Honeycomb is really fast and powerful.  I was easily able to re-sync all my apps from my EVO straight to the Transformer.  Thanks Google.
The keyboard dock is also awesome.  The tablet locks into place very securely and it really looks just like a netbook.  Very cool for standing it up to watch a video or to type something more substantial than a quick email.  In fact, I'm writing this whole post from my Transformer with it's keyboard dock in the Blogger app for Android.  The other great thing is that since I already knew my way around Android I was right at home.  I never even had to plug it into my computer once.  All of my music is streamed with Subsonic, my photos sync with Picasa Web, my Contacts, Email, Calendar all sync with my Google account.  In fact, I don't even know what I'd need to plug it in for period.
Right now I'm still getting aquainted.  I've played a few quick games on it and they worked very well and I'm still finding out new cool things about it.
More to come later!
