    I got a ASUS T300 on Friday and it didn't come with a owners manual. (I had to get one from their website) It did come with a guide that showed how to plug it in and charge the battery but that's is. Did I just get a bad box or are then just not included. I couldn't find one on the tab either.

    Being new to Android it was a bit frustrating trying to figure out what was what.

    No, you didn't just get a "bad box". They only provide the rudimentary stuff to get the purchaser going. I can see their point, in the age of online communication/access it is very easy to download the requisite manuals, as you did in the end anyway. Also, it helps safe a few trees by not printing the manuals and keep the cost down; well the TFP TF300 is a very keenly priced product. Several other large household names do the same thing, in particular Logitech; I bought one of their keyboards which comes in a plain cardboard box and pretty much nothing else in the the way of tradtional paperwork.

    I can understand no printed manual, but a PDF on the home screen would have been nice. Well, at least I know I wasn't missing anything.

    There was a manual on my tablet, I don't remember where and have since moved it to a location that makes sense to me.

    Mine did not come boxed with an owner's manual, and it was sealed new; regardless, I absolutely love my tablet.
