nice looking device, but my question would be, is it child (2-6) proof?

I'm not sure anything is really toddler proof from experience, I think the only way to keep these things safe is to keep them out of reach.

Legacy?

What's legacy about the Android on the Transformer? My first generation Transformer is running ICS, from an official OTA upgrade from Asus.

Transformer

This will be out end of June, Transformer Infinity will be out early June.... Hrm, wonder which one will win (also considering the new Tosh tab is the same specs as the current Transformer Prime....).

More CPU grunt = more battery required = bigger and heavier. It's better surely to wait until you can upgrade the hardware without needing to add more bulk.

Otherwise tablets are just going to grow into laptops and what's the point of that?

Not quite. With the Penta-Core, if demand is low, it runs on only the low power 5th core - thus saving battery hugely.

Only uses the big guns when needed.

Tosh Tablets

I've been looking a lot at tablets and from what I can gather the Tosh tablets seem to be very well spec'd and perform well in comparison with others, but they suffer from a shorter battery life than most, it'll be interesting to see what the reviews say on this one.
