The launch of the EEE Pad Transformers was very successful… Launch day we sold all our 2 units we got we the North York location. (too bad I was not there to sell them.. sigh..) Then people started coming in to put deposits on it to make sure they got it. We still have that list and it seems to be growing. With little units being allocated to our store.. The EEE Pad Transformer seems to be more popular than our other tablets.
We got the Creative Xiio tablets running Android 2.1 (Creative released the 2.2 update already) but we haven’t sold any of them. And we got an early shipment as it would seem of the Acer Iconia 10″ honeycomb tablet. We received 5 units, only sold 2..
Then theres the one Samsung Tab tablet from Bell. Still sitting in the Bell glass waiting to be bought. (with purchase of a 3 yr contract you get $100 In Store Credit which can be used on anything in the store)
We also got the playbooks too but we havent sold one.. We received 2 of the 16GBs, one is being used as a demo and a 32GB unit.
Out of all the Tablets we’ve been receiving the ASUS EEE Pad Transformers never sit in our stores for more than a few hours before the buyers come and buy it. lol I didn’t expect them to be this popular since Honeycomb isn’t as widely known as the Apple’s iPad 2 which is the most popular tablet on the market.
Someone… come to the North York store and buy the tablets!!! We also have the white iPhone 4 for Bell for sell if people are still interested in the finally released iPhone 4.
It’s been 2 weeks since I got my Motorola Xoom tablet and so far I like it. The Motorola Xoom is the first dual core tablet to run the Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS from Google. Developed by Motorola with the help of Google it was meant to be the iPad killer. Which so far does not look like the case market wise. Not too many people know about the Android platform as they do with the iPad. Regardless I am an Android fan and I will choose the Android platform over the iOS platform anyday.
Anyway. So far my experience with the Xoom is pretty good. The screen is responsive and the quality is pretty decent. The battery life is great and I can use it for a couple days before having to recharge it. The only issue I had at first with it is with the flaw with the Tegra design. Supposedly it is unable to decode high profile encoded videos therefore making mkvs pretty much useless. The only way around it is to convert it to mp4s and lowering the resolutions of 1080p movies to 720p in order to watch it on the xoom. There is also an issue with the fact that it doesn’t seem to like video files over 4GBs it has trouble reading it. Most of the time it refuses to read it.
Overall I am enjoying using my Moto Xoom. But i might still pick up the Playbook.. Don’t know yet.
