    Yeah. Old, old news. Not really an killer anything, though, even if it didn't have problems. They claimed the first version was too.

    It's almost like there's an entire thread, on the first page of this forum, about the Transformer Prime and which deals extensively with those issues.

    Oh wait.

    Also... as I said in that thread, I haven't used the bluetooth or GPS on my Prime, but the WiFi works just fine. Everything else is fantastic, it actually has an microSDHC slot, and the internals run circles around the iPad 2. That said, the iPad 3 will likely be coming out soon, which will reverse that last point. Also, you know, it runs ICS instead of IOS, which can be either a selling point or a negative, depending on your tastes.

    Do I think it's an "iPad killer?" No, but I do think it's marginally better than the iPad 2 for the way I use it.

    Due to the metal backing (assumed), my Transformer had zero wireless technology problems and was AWESOME at GPS.
