Eee Pad Slider ASUS Tablet Finally Starts Selling

ASUS had a great success with the Eee Pad Transformer tablet, and it might or might not see a similar level of orders for the Eee Pad Slider, an even newer tablet that finally arrived.

The Eee Pad Slider tablet from ASUS is one of those items that sparked many discussions and reports over the past few months.

Even the way it got delayed only served to add fuel to the fire, so there is little doubt that availability will now cause great ripples.

Indeed, the tablet has become available for order, as made clear by the official promo page that ASUS set up here.

The main characteristic of the slate is the fact that, unlike most of its peers, it does not lack the physical keyboard component.

Instead, it most certainly has a slide-out model, which stays behind the main body and only comes out when needed, at which point it also works as a stand of sorts.

That said, there is one disadvantage to this, though the Corning Gorilla glass protective panel also contributes to it.

Simply put, the Eee Pad Slider is heavier than many of its peers, weighing a total of 906 grams, about a third more than Samsung's Galaxy tab 10.1 or Apple's iPad 2.

Then again, the weight won't be too great an impediment for people who travel, since they usually bring a pack of some kind along anyway.

As for the actual specs, they are fairly standard, with Android 3.1 OS (Honeycomb), an NVIDIA Tegra 2 SoC at the heart and 1 GB of RAM (random access memory) backing it up.

Either 16 GB or 32 GB of flash storage exist, leading to prices of $479 (350 Euro) and $579 (423 Euro), respectively (the European prices will probably be higher than what the exchange rates show though).

Other features include the aforementioned Gorilla Glass, an IPS display (178 degree viewing angles), two cameras (5 and 1.2 megapixels back and front, respectively), Supreme SRS Sound and a battery life of up to 8 hours.
