Good :

At $400, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer has the lowest price of any Honeycomb tablet. Also, its high-quality screen and relatively cheap keyboard/dock make it an attractive option.

Honeycomb is the next version of the Android platform, designed from the ground up for devices with larger screen sizes, particularly tablets. We’ve spent a lot of time refining the user experience in Honeycomb, and we’ve developed a brand new, truly virtual and holographic user interface. Many of Android’s existing features will really shine on Honeycomb: refined multi-tasking, elegant notifications, access to over 100,000 apps on Android Market, home screen customization with a new 3D experience and redesigned widgets that are richer and more interactive. We’ve also made some powerful upgrades to the web browser, including tabbed browsing, form auto-fill, syncing with your Google Chrome bookmarks, and incognito mode for private browsing.

Bad

Disappointingly, the Eee Pad Transformer without its keyboard dock accessory doesn’t have a full-sized USB port or even a micro USB connector. The only ports on the tablet itself are a standard headphone jack, a mini-HDMI port (for connecting a high-definition TV or projector), a microSD card slot, and a proprietary ASUS connector that doubles as a USB and charging port. Though the proprietary connection is a pain, it offers two benefits: it connects the tablet to the keyboard dock, and charges much faster (around one hour) than a regular micro USB charger.

On the right side are the microSD card slot, a Mini-HDMI port, a microphone pinhole, and a headphone jack. On the left are the power/lock button and volume rocker. The bottom houses the 40-pin connector for charging the battery or connecting to a PC for data transfer, but unfortunately, no USB port is included. This is may be an intentional oversight that may incentivize the purchase of the keyboard/dock accessory.

Attempting to properly connect the keyboard to the tablet can be a highly frustrating experience. There are no markers to assist you in lining up the two pieces, and you essentially have to slide the tablet around until you feel it connect. Also, in order to get the tablet to lock into the dock, we had to push down fairly hard on it.

Working with Eclipse windows 7 64 bit problem

 

So in my efforts to start working with mobile devices one of the esseseties is Eclipse .

I’m new to this .

I’ve downloaded the biggest eclipse available from here .

For full list go to this link

 

So I’ve downloaded and extracted the zip . Pressed the eclipse.exe and..

GOT A FAT ERROR :

—————————
Eclipse
—————————
A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK)
must be available in order to run Eclipse. No Java virtual machine
was found after searching the following locations:
D:\MyDocuments\MyInstallers\Eclipse\eclipse-jee-indigo-win32-x86_64\eclipse\jre\bin\javaw.exe
javaw.exe in your current PATH
—————————
OK  
—————————

What’s that all about ..

Started digging around and found this post at the stackoverflow .

I’ve done it all -  all the anoying suggestions about altering your path and building java home , and letting the java.com decide for you what to install ..

Got dispeared and went home .

At last went on the suggestion about downloading different java for 64 bit at this link

 

Apperantly if you use IE that installed as x86 then it will install 32 bit java version that won’t work with 64 bit Eclipse .
