    Hey guys. I was thinking of getting the the Transformer, but could anyone tell me if there are apps (Honeycomb supported) that let me do these things, which I'd need to do on Windows?

    Edit/Create Microsoft Office Documents.

    Extract WinRAR's to devices (Such as my PSP)

    Download Torrents and open the files

    Also, does the Transformer have Full USB Ports like actual PC's?

    Thanks guys :D

    You can create and edit MS Office files with the included Polaris Office Suite. Works pretty well.

    You can get many apps that will let you extract the contents of a WinRAR archive.

    You can download torrent, but depending on the file type, you'd have to have a supported app.

    From what I understand the USB host mode only works with the keyboard accessory and then is somewhat limited.

    USB ports are only available on the keyboard dock. You get 2 USB ports. I find that there are some issues with it. If I use a USB thumb drive, it works fine. If I try to connect my HTC Desire Z to it and set the phone as a USB storage device, the Eee Pad does not recognise it. It can only charge my phone.

    That is a limitation with Android, not the TF, and is as much the phones fault as the Transformer.

    The USB ports on the dock are full size and USB2, they work well with PS3 sixasis controllers, wireless mice, keyboards, USB powered harddrives, flash drives etc.

    Thanks for the info. I have a need to occasionally transfer files from my phone to my tablet. I just end up transferring the file to my laptop first and then to the tablet.

    between phone and tablet is fastest/ easiest via bluetooth.

    Once you sync both devices, it's as simple on the TF as a long-press then select "send/ via bluetooth". Not sure how simple it is on other versions of android TO the TF..

    I use dropbox to transfer files between my computer and phone and/or tablet.
