Just bought the Transformer
I just bought the Transformer from Best Buy and it should be here next week. I know very little about the Transformer other than it has a dual core processor and a nice screen. What did I get myself into? How does the Transformer stack up to the rest of the Android 3.0 tabs?

Oh, it's absolutely appalling. How appalling is what we're filling threads with here in the forum.
Only joking; depending on your perceived use case, the kb dock makes it dual purpose, much better at content creation. Without the dock, it has a real nice ips panel, which puts the more expensive tablets to shame!
Congrats in advance (assuming you get one that's gone though QC at some point!)

I was gonna wait a week but I just found myself hitting submit on a 16 gig model while they are in stock. I have a spare 16gb micro sd at home that I will use to get to 32 with the rest of you. Excited but slightly disappointed at my lack of willpower lol

@androidASUS - did you just try the netflix app, or did you try the build.prop edits, or did you try the modded versions of the app on xda by ften? Also, my next step will be to look on this forum and see if there is a thread dedicated to Netflix on this device yet - if there is I will post there if not I will start one - we are getting a smidge off topic. (but I really hope it can work)

Just opened a new thread for the Netflix stuff - mods if there is a good thread on this going elsewhere then feel free to delete mine, but I searched and didn't find any on the device forum yet.
@AndroidASUS - In the opening post of that thread I link to an XDA thread that has 3 versions of Netflix APK's that can be sideloaded onto your device - if you have not already could you jump over there and try them and mention in that thread how it goes?
Now back to the topic at hand -
I ordered mine just 12 hours ago and I am already tired of waiting - I think I might be spoiled

Rolling The Dice
Of course, that didn't stop me from grabbing a 32gb Transformer from Newegg on Saturday. It was actually in stock longer than 5 minutes . I saw a demo at my local Micro Center last week (they were out of stock, of course) and just had to have it! I got tired of waiting for Best Buy, HH Gregg, Micro Center, etc. to get the physical tablets in their stores. Also, Newegg has a "Bill Me Later" option (good until May 31st) that sealed the deal!
I got a very pleasant surprise from Newegg last night (on a Sunday, no less) saying that my order has been processed and my Transformer is on the way. I even have that all-important tracking number. Can't wait!!Just a Rebel Masquerading as a Normal Person Sporting the Original Droid Incredible and Asus Eee Transformer

@carguysc you are getting screwed man, I ordered mine yesterday (a Sunday no less) and not only do I have a shipping notification and tracking number, but mine is slated to get here tomorrow! I am pumped! ( sorry if that is rubbing it in )
I will say that it is dumb luck that I live just north of Cincy and it is shipping from central kentucky so it doesn't have to travel far. Oddly enough for very different reasons there are now both an ipad2 and my transformer set to get here tomorrow. I hope mine gets here first.

I made an order through Best Buy at 7:20am this morning and chose the fastest shipping method for like $21 because I'm a Premier Silver member and mine is scheduled to arrive before 10:30am tomorrow morning.
Not sure what's going on with your order Carguysc. Did you by chance just choose the standard shipping option? That would explain our orders being shipped before yours.
I'm going to do my own head to head test and return the loser. I have 45 days to return either unit.

Mine got here yesterday and I'm still trying to get everything set up the way I want. So far I'm really enjoying it and very glad I got the dock which seperates this from all others. Still trying to find the best way to sync my files with my pc once I find the best way it will be happy times.
