bumpin this up one time .....
I've seen a few threads about what features the next transformer after tf700 might have. As an ASUS customer I've never gotten a survey about what I want even though I've bought a few of their tablets. Just throwing the topic out wondering about a "wish list" for the next tablet....
My wish list no meaning to the order of it;
1. same or better battery life.
2. MUCH MUCH MUCH Better wireless, bluetooth 4, nfc, wifi, optional 4g...
3. same keyboard dock but with backlit keyboard.-preferably a bundle sold with tablet+keyboard+connector dock for the desk!
4. better OS or overlay like samsung for floating widgets and side by side apps.
5. Much better screen high res with 11" edge to edge -same form factor.
6. Increased storage option, pay $ for more ram and for better faster larger ssd 32gb-256gb ssd.
7. Get rid of polaris office and perhaps sell with a $25 google play credit...
well wishlist now ends for the night!

Nothing more than a discussion thread regarding a wish list for asus's next series of tablets. For some reason Asus makes a decision that seems to upset fans but perhaps they do it for shrewd business reasons? For example they made the padfone II without a keyboard dock. I hope they continue the docks for their other new tablet. I should have also added on the wishlist better design+build. I'd rather have that than looks (see endless threads on prime's aluminum casing and very poor wireless performances).
As intense book reader I wish ASUS would make 8" tablet. I love my Infinity but I've bought ARCHOS 8" tablet for reading. I would have enjoyed much more purchasing ASUS 8" device. Maybe someday ASUS will discover this niche.
Asus makes the Nexus 7 which is pretty much in that niche.

1. Battery could be improved, but as it is now it works rather well. It could be improved upon but not that many users are complaining about the battery life.
2. The WiFi has already been improved with the plastic strip integrated into the top of the tablet. My TF700 get very good reception, better than some notebook computers.
The Bluetooth is excellent in my opinion. It has better range than the Bluetooth dongle I currently use on my desktop computer. Optional 4G connection could be offered as an upgrade.
3. Having a backlit keyboard would only add to the price of the dock which is pricey to begin with. The vast majority of users who use keyboards do not use a backlit keyboard.
4. Each manufacturer of tablets tweak the Android OS to their own specifications. This enables them to provides unique features compared to the competition. Too much of a copycat would possibly open the door for possible lawsuits.
5. The 10.1" current display format works fine for the vast majority of users. Going to an 11" would only increase the price and and especially the weight of the tablet. It would also entail manufacturing an odd-sized
screen which since the demand would not be nearly as great, would therefore cause the tablet to be more expensive.
6. This one I agree with in some aspects. Installing 2GB of DDR3 RAM would be a boost in performance. Increasing the internal storage capacity would only increase the price. 64GB is large, but definitely no more than
96GB or 128GB. There really is no reason to go larger. Besides one can always use a larger microSDHC card.
7. Polaris Office is not that great of an app I agree. I don't think you'll see ASUS remove it though. They probably receive a bit of monetary incentive to install it on the tablet from Polaris. Much like the PC OEM
manufacturers receive some compensation for installing software on their computers.
I never learned from a man who agreed with me.

its weird how with asus's offerings they go from 10.1" to 13" (transformer book with windows 8). I thought acer was coming out with an 11 inch edge to edge screen tablet. How difficult and costly could this be?
