Asus Eee Pad Transformer VS. Toshiba Thrive…
Two of the best selling Honeycomb tablets out right now. The two are very similar, specs-wise they’re playing in the same league. The Asus slate can be transformed into a tablet/netbook, with its optional keyboard dock.

Both of the tabs come with a 10.1 inch capacitive IPS 1280 x 800 pixel resolution displays. They also both have a front-facing camera, while the Transformer camera resolution is a little lower with a 1.2 megapixel resolution compared the 2MP the Toshiba Thrive features. A draw for the camera on the back, as they both have a 5MP camera with autofocus and geo-tagging but without flash.

HD video recording is not a problem on the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer. The device is capable of recording HD video in 720p unlike the Thrive, which is unable to capture HD video content.

But Toshiba has 3 models of it’s Thrive with different internal memory capacities. While ASUS’ tablet is available in 16GB and 32GB versions, Toshiba’s Thrive comes with 8GB, 16GB or 32GB of internal memory.

If you’re looking for an increased portability, the Transformer is with 13mm thinner and with the weight of 680 grams also lighter compared to the Transformer with weight of 771 grams and 15mm.
Both come with 1GB of RAM, and the Adobe Flash support. While an ASUS’ 3G Transformer model has been spotted, Toshiba fans still are waiting on an 3G Thrive announcement.

A really nice thing on the Toshiba Thrive is the ability two change the battery yourself. The ASUS does not have a removable battery.  Check out more differences in the comparison video below:

    and I still can decide! If you were buying for a HS senior who would then take it on to college, which one would be able to record lectures the best and transfer over to onenote?

      my pick is the asus eee pad transformer, its the first tablet with the android 3.2 OTA upgrade and its sure to not disappoint
