If you're using a power inverter, then yes. The power adapter doesn't require much wattage, maybe 10-15. I plan on getting a cheap cigarette lighter adapter power inverter for travelling.

I've had no problems connecting and staying connected to a variety of wifi routers and wifi security types.

answer 2
Yes and no. You can get a 12v USB (cigarette style) USB adapter. Most have two USB ports.

But - this needs 10 watts to charge while running, and these produce only 5 watts. (the same issue exists to charge an iPad).

So you can only charge them when they are off. Both of these work with any WiFi you find, and support encryption and web based post connect logins. There are even apps for Boingo wifi connections.

By the way: I'm not aware of a lot of Android sailing/boating apps, but there are a ton of them for the iPad.

If you have an inverter to produce 110V then yes. It draws 15V so won't charge from a battery directly. You can get a decent inverter from walmart for less than $30.

It will connect to any wifi except adhoc (which is computer to computer direct) and many functions, like GPS will work without wifi as long as you download the maps first. Books can be read offline too. Just don't get it wet.

If you have the proper inverter on the boat, it will charge. (If you can run other devices i.e. TV/DVD, laptop this will use the same type AC plug. As for Wifi, yes this will show you available Wifi networks. You select whichever you want to join and "connect" to it. Nothing hard. The process is very similar to how you would connect a laptop to a new Wifi network.

The keyboard "dock" is an ADDON feature you buy separately. It does appear in one of the pictures, but at this price (399.98) it is not included. The dock costs 160-180 depending on where you get it.

There MIGHT be a few things bundled differently, but the actual device is identical. The amount of storage space can vary (i.e. 16GB, 32GB), it might be bundled with the keyboard or might not. But it is the exact same device Walmart 16GB version=Target 16GB version, etc.

You can, but only with the optional keyboard dock. If you're looking for native USB device support, one of the only options currently available is the Acer Iconia pad, which has a full sized USB port built in.

Yes. But it also has a microSD slot which is easier. To connect portable harddrive you'll need the keyboard which has a normal sized USB. 8GB microSD is less than $20 and you can easily move it in and out.

Transformer, hands down. And you're not limited to the "apple" world. Many customizations and 'rooting' options available.
answered 3 years, 3 months ago

answer 2
Depends on what is more important/useful to you.

One design is simply, with little to no built-in upgrade path (adding more memory) or USB ports. = iPad

One design allows adding much storage, cheaply and has USB ports in the keyboard dock. = Asus

iPad = has more apps specific to iPad, granted not all are great. Depends on your needs, but in this area, iPad is stronger

Asus = has some apps, many NOT optimized for tablets. Some will work some will not. If there is something critical for you to use, search first for apps online for a good fit.

Tough call. Ipad is better, but more expensive. Transformer is more affordable, has a lot of the technical features of Ipad and runs Android. It really comes down to what you want to do with it.

answer 4
Depends on what you are looking for, Apple has a great product and many partners for software to run on the device.

As for hardware the A5 processor on the iPad 2 is very similar to the Tegra 2 processor on this device.

The resolution, sound, and other components are nearly identical. So the real difference comes down to Cost/Value of the Software.

This depends. With the right app, most any file can be played if the device (tablet) can handle it. If not, simply find a FREE converter online and convert file into a .AVI or .MP4 format.
