Asus definitely aimed high by making this device more feature loaded than other UMPC devices. But cramming everything you can into a device with a small screen, underpowered processor and putting a bunch of startup software and processes on it can result in a not so stellar user experience. Inside the main box you get two more boxes, one that contains the actual R2 device and the other a whole bunch of accessories to go with your R2H.
After opening the main box, you get two more boxes and an instruction book view large image. Lots of goodies come in the box with the R2H view large image.
The R2H is eye catching. The build is rock solid, the case is a very rigid and firm metallic material.
The overall device is quite thick, I measure it to be about 1. The R2 is designed to be held by two hands at the same time. It has a joystick on the right top side for easy cursor navigation like a mouse.

Below the joystick nanual on the right side are a Page Up and Page Down button that allow you to quickly scroll through long documents such as web pages. Finally on the right lower side is a shortcut button that brings up a screen allowing you to adjust system settings such as brightness, volume, screen resolution and color mode.
On the left top side is a biometric fingerprint reader that can be used as a login method to Windows. Below that are the equivalent of right and left mouse rh. In the middle area of the left side is a D-Pad that allows you to easily scroll up, down, left or axus in a document. Finally, on the lower left side is a button that brings up an aeus called Program Launcher that allows you to quickly navigate to various important program categories such as GPS and communications — this Program Launcher application is customizable by the user as to what program links it contains.
I, for instance, found myself using it at the breakfast table to surf news web sites while drinking coffee and munching toast. Simply using the included stand so the device stood facing me and then poking links with a stylus the Asus R2 is a Tablet PC with touch sensitive screen to navigate about manul quite doable.
The built-in kick stand makes it easy to stand the R2 up and face the user for easy tapping of the screen with the stylus view large image.
The T2h can also sit flat and be used. It has four rubber feet on its back so when you place it lying screen face up the device is slightly elevated to allow the vents on the back to still do their work.
You could also attach a USB keyboard to the device and type a document while using the kickstand to keep the R2 facing you. The major challenge being the limited 7″ screen size and its resolution of x The GPS functionality of this device might make you want to take in the car as a navigation tool. The only real way to use it in the car as assu GPS nav tool is to sit it on the passenger seat next to you.
Or recruit your passenger as a co-pilot that can use majual R2H. The name of the game with mahual R2H is obviously not performance, the talk should focus more on usability and portability for this device. Frequently there is lots of lag when using even basic applications or navigating menus. You can watch the screen redraw itself at times. Having said that, Asus included a bunch of software utilities that run in the background, aggravating and stealing resources from an already power starved processor.
The very poor processor and overall performance really sinks the usability of this device. The Super Pi benchmark test of forcing the processor to calculate Pi to 2 million digits of accuracy gives a good indication of how slow the Celeron M chugs along. The Asus R2H with its Celeron M got 5m 18s when plugged in, but when on battery and the processor underclocked it took a knuckle dragging 10m 48s.
The PCMark05 benchmark gives an idea of overall system performance, this is a very unfair comparison table below as most notebooks compared have dedicated graphics and a high-end processor, but at least it gives you an idea of where the R2 stands: Everest is used to give a rundown on the hardware inside a PC, following is a link to this report for the R2H: The R2H screen is 7″ diagonally and has a x native resolution.
ASUS R2H – big unboxing
The screen is nice and can be cranked up to be easily readable and bright, but Windows XP on a display of this size is pretty painful to use. You can adjust the resolution of the screen so it is higher, you do this by using the built-in Asus Power4 Gear utility by hitting the bottom right hand button to select higher resolutions of x or x However, the graphics and icons will appear a bit distorted and text is fairly hard to read at the highest resolution of x All the same, I ended up using the x resolution most of the time so I could see more stuff on the screen.

On the underneath side of the R2H you can see the GPS antenna and kickstand that allows you to prop up the R2 so it can stand facing you. In the bottom left hand side is also a silo for storing the stylus.
On the front side of the R2H you can see the 1. Down the right side is the joystick navigation button that acts like a mouse, pushing it in acts as a left click.
The Page up and Page Down nav buttons are below the joystick on the right, and then a shortcut button to the Asus Power4 Gear utility that allows you to adjust system power and display settings.

On the left side is asux fingerprint reader for biometric login — this can be used to replace the regular Windows login. Below that are buttons that serve as left and right mouse click buttons. Below that is a D-pad for screen scrolling — the joystick controls the cursor while the D-pad serves as a method for scrolling within windows.

Overall the R2H has an excellent array of ports for its size. This is the most up to date chipset you can get and supposedly offers fast fix times, high sensitivity for locking satellites in urban areas and a low power drain on battery life. I was never able to acquire satellites from indoors by a window, but going up on the roof of a story building did eventually yield success in acquiring 5 satellites and a very precise location.
After that the GPS worked okay, r22h I could even acquire a couple of satellites from indoors by a window, but performance was never outstanding. I think it might have something to do mankal all the interference from the internal workings of the R2H.
The stylus you get with the R2 asuss no fancier that what might come with a PDA. I found using Tablet PC applications and writing on the screen tough because of the size, and the feel unnatural.
Included with the R2H is a full version of Microsoft Streets and Tripsa handy piece of software for planning trips and getting maps of the U.
The integrated GPS works in conjunction with this program to locate where you are and also provide directions to a destination. A cool little accessory that comes with the R2 is a Netlink cable that allows you to connect to a PC and access files or optical drives on that PC.
It also allows you to browse the hard drive of the R2 from your PC. Below is a picture of the R2 connected to my ThinkPad using this cable.

Honestly, while some of the security stuff and automatic update utilities are well intended, I think the end user would have appreciated a somehow more stripped down OS with minimal pre-installed software.
When in native resolution mode x if you open one program and display all the icons in the system tray your entire bottom toolbar is occupied. The caveat to saying any one piece of software is really great to use on the R2 is the fact the processor and sluggish performance could turn the application into a slog. The R2 has a mono speaker built-in on the left lower side. System sounds are fine, but listening to MP3s is quite painful as the sound is tinny and low in volume. I figured that with the Celeron M processor inside power consumption and heat would be low.
But the R2 got hot at times, the fan on the top had to puff out air as fast as it could after a couple of hours of continuous usage. The fan was certainly audible r2 it revved into high gear. When running HDTune it even warned me my hard drive was at a critical temperature of 59C, so things can certainly get warm inside. The front surface of the R2 never seemed to get really hot, but the back area asis vents did get very warm. The R2H came with a 4-cell battery, I was prepared for pitiful performance but was able to get 3 hours of usage out of one charge.
This was accomplished having the screen brightness set to level 3 brightness lowbut the screen was still quite viewable indoors at this mamual. Wireless was toggled between on and manjal over this period and the device was used for about 2 hours of the time. Battery life certainly beat my expectations. Asus included an Wireless was decent but reception was not as good as what I get from my regular laptop that has an Intel wireless card.
The cool factor is high for having GPS, a web camera, wi-fi and Bluetooth all crammed into this pretty looking device.
