The Asus Eee Pad transformer Prime is what, exactly? Is it a laptop or an Android tablet? Well, the truth is, it is both. It comes as a laptop at first glance, but its monitor can be detached, turning it into an Android tablet. And this was amazing. Everyone talked about it even before it was released. It was also rumoured to be the "iPad killer” because it was an amazing competitor for the iPad.
Asus has never had a halo product before this. And it became really good for them to have a product that made people look their way. The Eee made Asus a household name. Their Eee Pc’s were far from perfect but this gave them the opportunity to be in the spotlight. The only problem was that the Transformer Prime was a disappointment.

Not that it was a very bad gadget, if anything, it was a promising product, which made it a little more disappointing that it lost its sizzle almost as soon as it started. As soon as the product hit the retailers, users and developers discovered that their system was locked and the hardware was buggy. Knowing that it was, after all, Android, it was in total opposition to Android being "open.”
That was the problem. Asus locked their system down. Apparently, there was a 128 Bit encryption employed to keep owners from accessing key components of the tablet laptop. Although this might have been a form of protection, it disallowed the customers to maximize the potential of the gadget. Instead of enjoying all its features in the greatest possible way, you ended up just discovering other problems because of the gadget’s limitations.

And it went on from there. Consumers are now reporting that the GPS on the new Asus Prime Transformer’s GPS function is nearly unusable and the Wi-Fi support just adds weight to the frustration. And of course, since they locked their software, the owners of this gadget would have no choice but to purchase applications that will be beneficial. Although, this would be normal if you were using an Apple product, for Android gadgets, there shouldn’t have these kinds of issues.
From there, it’s safe to say that you should make sure that the gadgets you release are worth every penny. The Asus Eee PC Transformer Prime was, indeed, relatively stellar, but it lost its battle when it came down to the technical aspects of the gadget. The hardware itself was cool! You had a laptop screen that became an Android tablet once detached. Who wouldn’t want that? But because people expected a lot from the gadget, and one of the most important features was that the system was open, we were all sad about it. This was supposed to be the time that Asus would rule, and fight against Apple. But unfortunately, the gods were not in their favour when it came to that.
