Using a USB keyboard and mouse with the ASUS EeePad Transformer

Sometimes you just have to have that desktop experience. I use a laptop for my everyday computer. But when I can, I use it in the more traditional sense -- with a full keyboard and mouse -- plus a nice, big second monitor. And that's another feature that we're loving in the ASUS EeePad Transformer -- proper USB support.

The Transformer's got not one but two USB 2.0 ports for you to use on the keyboard dock. (There's another reason to shell out the extra $149, eh?) Friend or a co-worker have something to show you on a flash drive? Just pop it in. Want to use a USB keyboard or mouse? Go right ahead.

And it's that simple. You just plug them in, and they work.

  • I wonder how long it will take before this ability is brought over to the Xoom?
  • Awesome :-)
  • Hi, can you plug in a printer and get it to work?? without using wifi or bluetooth, just by usb...
  • Can we have a Xoom vs Transformer video
