Ice Cream Sandwich brings UI improvements and is a good step forward for Android, though it's not as cosmetically different from Honeycomb as it is from Gingerbread for Android phones.

Images and text are sharper thanks to the higher resolution and higher contrast of the screen.

It’s also worth noting that the new Transformer is more top-heavy than its predecessor as the dock weighs less, so you have to be extra careful not to let it tilt off your lap.

The 263 x 180.8 x 8.3mm tablet is wider than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, although the screen, at 1280 x 800p resolution and 10.1 inches, is the same size.
