7notes: Precise Handwriting Recognition App For The iPad And iPhone

Remember when the Asus Eee Pad Transformer was the hottest thing since Laserdisc? Remember when it was hailed as an iPad killer with its fancy IPS screen, low price and sweet name. Autobots, unite! Well, Walmart is currently selling it for $350, which puts it at the low-end of the Honeycomb tab price scale. Jokes aside, it’s actually a great deal for an Android tablet.

The model in question is of course the entry level 16GB WiFi model. It sports a fair amount of inputs/outputs, a great 10.1-inch IPS screen and dual cams. The build quality is actually quite nice. This doesn’t feel like a $350 although someone at Walmart clearly disagrees.

The tablet doesn’t seem to be any sort of special sale. Shipping is only $.97 and at $349, this is the lease expensive of the mainstream Honeycomb tablets. Wally’s World sells the Acer Icona Tab A500 for $398 and the 8GB Toshiba Thrive for $398. Spend more and get less, eh. Looking for an Android tablet and the ThinkPad Tablet is too pricey? Opt for this instead.
