In addition to the high brightness and vivid colors, the display panel sports very good viewing angles, too, though the vertical ones seem a tad wider than the horizontal.

Feasting our eyes on its industrial design, we adore that it has an overall clean appearance, but even more impressive is the fact it’s able to pack everything into its compact 0.41” thick body – and it’s uniform too!

The 1.2-megapixel front camera takes decent shots as well, for what it is: it's brighter than many other tablets, but it's still nothing special.

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.

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.

In that same spirit of borrowing from its best technology to make a compelling tablet, Sony has borrowed the Exmor image technology from its digital cameras to make a tablet camera that's actually worth a damn.

While the XOOM's picture also has a tendency to look washed out and under-saturated, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer raises the bar with bright, vivid colors and good contrast levels, though the screen doesn't feel quite as responsive as the one on Apple's tab and loves finger-prints.
