Asus Eee PC

Asus Eee PC Transformer DockThe Asus Eee Pad Transformer is our favorite Android powered tablet on the market today. Not only is it a very impressive solid tablet by itself, it’s the only tablet on the market that is “Transformable” into a netbook / tablet by docking it with its keyboard docking station. This adds a fully functional keyboard, 7 hours of extra battery life, 2x USB 2.0 ports and a SD card reader to the tablet.

But what happens if you don’t want to use, or own the keyboard dock? well, firstly you will lose access the the USB ports and the SD card reader. To combat this Asus are releasing number of new accessories for the Transformer.

These three new accessories are already showing up on Amazon in Germany. The first is a docking station which acts as a stand for the tablet and adds 2 USB ports, a SD Card slot, and a headphone jack. (The Mini HDMI output is already directly on the tablet). This costs 29 Euros or about $40.

The second and third accessories are adapters. The first adds a USB port, and the second adds an SD card reader. Both adapters cost 19 Euros or about $25.

The docking station looks very stable and well constructed and adds the extra ports via the proprietary docking port on the bottom of the tablet. The two adapters also connect via the proprietary port.

    Do you have a link to the docking station? – can’t find this item anywhere other than this review.
    This would appear to be an ideal companion product for the Asus Transformer, but it isn’t being promoted anywhere – looks like Asus would prefer people to buy the keyboard.

    I have to admit, I am confused by your post. However as I may have mentioned, I ended up buying two port adapters for the Asus TF-101. I bought one from Caseen.com which plugs into the bottom of the tablet (where the power cord goes) and allows you to use many USB devices on the table including external hard drives and keyboards and game controllers. I also purchase the same item only it is used to take a full sized SD card from computer or cameras from Amazon. I also bought a 10 extension so I can use the tablet with a dead battery got that at caseen.com also. Cheers….

    I found this article, and have been looking online for nearly an hour to no avail. Trying to find the dock, can’t find it anywhere. Where the heck did you get it? I want one. I want to use my TF as a bedside clock. Links would be great!

      Sorry buddy, I am afraid you are searching in vein. I believe the dock was a prototype and announced but only a few of them were produced. So good luck, maybe you can look for an alternative? I use my Galaxy Note in a bedside dock station. In fact, if you happen to own a Galaxy S cell phone, I have a dock that I will give you. I don’t know if you can find an adapter from USB to 6 pin mini USB. If you see one then perhaps that you could adapt the cord from your Anus and plug into Samsung dock station? It has a 3.5mm sound jack that goes to the little mini speakers from the dock. I don’t need it any more. Cheers

    Defining a particular region for the food choices of these types
    is not at all possible. Place plenty of shredded lettuce or salad mix in an
    over-sized bowl. Try just a little experimenting and come up
    with some HCG recipes all by yourself.
