Even though the Eee Pad is twice as much, it's worth it. If you can afford it, then it is highly recommended. Both devices are two of the highlights of the Android tablet world to be sure. If you don't believe it, think of it this way; Kindle Fire is one of the most popular items this holiday season, and the Eee Pad has been out for nearly a year and it's still one of the best Android tablets around.
Neither device is perfect, however. Eee Pad Transformer has been out for a while now, and it doesn't have a sexy look to it. It's entirely plastic, with none of the brushed aluminum sexiness seen on other tablets. It doesn't feel flimsy, though, and the guts are what matter for most people. Kindle Fire's biggest shortcoming is that it's not a real full functioning tablet because it cannot access the Android Market. That might not matter to some people, but there over 300,000 apps there, and some of them you might even have your eye of before you buy the device. As with many tech purchases, price is an ever present concern, so Kindle Fire wins that battle easily. Furthermore, if you an Amazon power user, Kindle Fire is an obvious choice too. If you can afford the $400 for the Eee Pad Transformer, though, don't hesitate because no other 10-inch tablet can compete with that price.
