Asus has posted an extensive update on its UK blog covering the
newly-announced EeePad Transformer
TF700 tablet, along with details of how the widely-reported Wifi and GPS
issues with the original Transformer Prime
TF201 affect UK users.
Firstly, ASUS says that the Wifi problems experienced by some Prime owners
stateside don't affect any of the units sold in the UK. And on the subject of

their tablets within 30 days for a full refund. To sweeten the deal for those

on the device from 12 to 18 months. If you want to take them up on the offer,

The Kindle Fire entered the fast-flooding and highly competitive tablet space last year like a breath of fresh air, and has settled down admirably in its own niche, holding out extremely well against the likes of the Ipad 2, the much touted Motorola Xoom, the Samsung Galaxy Tab/s & the Asus Transformer, despite running Gingerbread, which was considered a step behind at the time.

Worldwide Developers Conference. The iOS version is limited in functionality
compared to the desktop version, but still serves as a functional search system
for the popular mobile range of devices.
