Transformer HD now with a new design and connects to iPad wirelessly! (Also connects to PC, Mac & Android)
How many times have you heard someone ask, “is it compatible with an iPad?”
Now the answer is a resounding…yes!
The new Transformer HD Wi-Fi is a total redesign…and a break-through new low vision product!
It has all the functionality of the former version, plus so much more!
The new Transformer HD now houses a built-in Wi-Fi. This allows the new Transformer HD Wi-Fi to connect to an iPad, using no wires… that means…Wirelessly…!
The benefits of this new wireless functionality are enormous!
Remember… the new Transformer HD Wi-Fi also has a built in 2-hour battery, so students with low vision do not have to plug it in during class (a 2nd 2-hour battery and 2nd charger are also included) – students are not anchored to a wall with a long power cord, and they are not fighting with messy “spaghetti” wires. Students are also NOT bleeding down any laptop batteries, because the battery on the new Transformer HD Wi-Fi is totally independent from the users laptop.
