Although Brand is a factor for many people, I’d say if I was in the market for an ipad type device, it would probably be the ipad by Apple.
I have so many of these things >>> “gadget toys” with no real use, that I falter to purchase any more these days.
I have the Nokia 810 and (pretty much) only play games on it. It’s about the size of (a little bigger than, actually) the iphones are these days and has a slide out qwerty keyboard. I also do use it to check how websites look and operate on a small device, which I also do with the iphones we have here. The newest iphone also has a slide out qwerty keyboard (Samsung Indulge).
A double check so to speak on how websites deliver on these devices. But for use as actual “working on business” items, they are not used. Nokia has been a good brand for me as is Toshiba laptops.
My Kindle Fire, that I use each and every day now, is my favorite new gadget. It’s great, I LOVE it and peruse newly built websites on that too. THIS is a never ending cycle with all the gadgets. Sorry, getting windy again.
Since I am a real qwerty keyboard fan (is that old-fashioned?) I think the choice your Mom made in the Asus Transformer Prime is a great choice. Did hers come with the qwerty keyboard docking system? I assume they all do. At any rate, that seems like a great choice to me. Since the prices run a little cheaper than the Apple ipad, that might be my choice too.
IF I was in the market for another “gadget” – plus I don’t know where I could possibly find room for another thing like this! When I got the Kindle Fire last November I was almost bamboozled about where to plug the thing in! Yikes.
