While not exactly a docking station, this is clearly more than just a keyboard. It comes with:

- USB 2.0 port
- full size SD port to complement the tablet's own microSD
- charger port on the left side but no actual charger
- extra integrated battery pack to power the tablet


The keyboard attaches itself to the Transformer tablet and, once attached, the 2 are fully integrated. The keyboard's battery adds to tablet's to allow for about 16 hours of playtime. The Transformer 'sees' the keyboard SD and USB ports and, once something is attached, the OS adds the proper buttons to the tablet's screen. With a 32GB SD card on keyboard's slot you get quite a bit of storage. Even better, the 2 battery packs will easily power a USB-attached HDD for hundreds of GB of storage.

The touchpad produces a mouse pointer on the screen. Tapping emulates mouse clicks. If you are typing you can turn off the touchpad's input.

Of course, all these extra goodies are available for as long as the keyboard stays attached.


Anyone used to tablet-size keyboards should feel comfortable with this one. Probably more comfortable because this is a well made keyboard and, of course, because it comes with the touchpad. The keyboard comes with dedicated buttons to open up the browser, for settings, brightness and volume control and for locking/unlocking the screen.


This is not a 'cheap' keyboard in any way. It's quite expensive but it comes with enough features (battery, ports, touchpad) to make it well worth it IF you are planning to use the tablet with the keyboard. And, even if you don't, its extra battery pack and its ability to connect with USB devices still makes it well worth the expense.

I am very pleased with our Transformer and the keyboard/dock makes it an even better device.

If you are traveling with your Transformer Prime this is a must-have accessory. The keyboard is a perfect match for your tablet, it feels just like the back of the TF Prime, and it is as well made as the tablet itself. The keys are very comfortable to type with given the size of the keyboard, and they are spill & crumb resistant. The keyboard dock add 6 hours of battery life, can act like a stand for holding up your tablet, adds a full USB port and full SD Card slot and of course makes it significantly easier to type on. It also adds hardware keys for most tablet settings such as screen brightness, wifi toggle, volume, video playback and other controls. The keyboard will also protect the screen when traveling with the tablet in your bag or whatnot.

The only negatives I have to say about the keyboard dock are minor.

The most annoying (for me) is that the trackpad is set to "tap to click" so I keep accidentally selecting items while navigating with the track pad. Currently there is no way to turn off this setting, however there is a keyboard button to disable the trackpad itself if you want to use a normal USB mouse, which works perfectly with no drivers.

The second minor irritation is that the keyboard is lighter than the tablet itself so if you are are using the keyboard on your lap or another uneven surface the tablet will tend to fall backwards unless you keep your hands on the keyboard.

All in all this dock is an amazing addition to the Transformer Prime tablet and if you have the tablet I would definitely recommend this accessory over any other.

Before buying this I was not sure I would find it that useful. But I bought it anyway because it looked cool. I have been very pleasantly surprised. It's a very nice little keyboard and totally transforms the machine (as advertised!). It has a good trackpad and a slightly stiff chiclet feel, and lots of useful dedicated function keys. The layout is very similar to a standard PC keyboard - it's not another unfamiliar layout like all of the onscreen Android keyboards are. I have been impressed by the attention to detail (which may be to Google's credit or to Asus's - not sure) - e.g. CTRL + backspace does a forward delete; the search key is placed to the left of the space bar and functions like the Windows key in that you can press it and type to launch an app or search.

My only criticisms are relatively minor: there is no "wake" key on the keyboard so you still have to use the one above the screen, the lock key is close to the backspace key so you can accidentally lock your screen while typing, and the left shift key is small and takes a bit of getting used to.

Overall I'd recommend this strongly to anyone with a Prime, especially as it contains a second battery that significantly extends your (already excellent) battery life.

First, let me start by saying that I'm not using this dock with the Transformer Prime TF201. I'm using it with the Transformer Infinity TF700. I had read several reviews on the Infinity before buying it and they all said that A) The Infinity works with the Prime dock and B) The Prime dock has a larger battery than the Infinity dock.

Everything on this dock works perfectly with the Infinity. Keyboard, sd slot, usb port, charging, trackpad...everything. It's a little bit tighter of a fit than it is with the Prime but really, all it means is that there's less play between the dock and tablet and you have to manually slide the lock all the way over...no big deal.

The keyboard itself is better than most netbook and all folio-style tablet keyboards I've ever used. The only one that beats it, in my opinion is the keyboard on the Lenovo Ideapad S10-3t net-vertible (10.1" Windows 7 tablet pc.) Probably mostly because I've used it so much as to become quite comfortable with it. I've only had this dock for a few days but I'm happily using it to write this review, along with the review I just did on my Infinity.

Bottom Line: Considering the fact that this dock has a larger battery AND is about $50 less expensive than the Infinity dock, I'd say it's the definition of "win-win."

P.S. I've seen several complaints about hitting the trackpad when trying to type. In the top row of keys, fourth from the left is a button to disable/enable the trackpad. Use it and save yourself some frustration. This thing's got a touchscreen...no need for a trackpad. If you really like the trackpad, just get used to turning it on when you need/want it.
