Another Asus tablet - the EeePAd Slider

The Asus EeePAd Slider is another one of the awaited tablets with a slide keyboard for the Android segment. The Slider has a qwerty keyboard that, in this case, is attached to the device and it hides in its inferior side, it detaches in just one movement which gives it a portable feel.

The integrated sliding keyboard offers a faster and more comfortable way to write than the touchscreen, which improves user productivity without giving away maximum portability.

The design of the Slider shows a mix of different materials, with black glass for the frame around the screen, some metallic touches and the rest it’s an antiskid plastic material, pretty comfortable to hold.

It features a 10.1 LCD multi-touch capacitive screen with an IPS panel and 1280 x 800 pixels of resolution. This screen also features a Gorilla Glass coating to protect it from bumps and scratches.

It has an eMMC 16/32GB slot, USB port, micro SD memory card reader and a mini-HDMI port, making the EeePad Slider an ultra-portable entertainment and productivity center.

The Slider belongs to a tablet generations with the nVidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor with 1.2Ghz frequency, 1GB of RAM and either 16 or 32GB of internal storage depending on the model.

It includes Wi-Fi-N and Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR. It also has an accelerometer and A-GPS while the 3G connection is optional. It has 2 cameras, one with 5 MP, autofocus and video recording located in the back, while the front one it features 1.3 MP and it’s aimed for video conferences. The integrated battery lasts up to 8 hours.

It comes installed with Android 3.1 Honeycomb and Asus included some useful apps, like Polaris Office or the e-book reader Zinio Reader.

The internet browser is compatible with Flash 10.1 and the video playback allows the most used format, even in HD, thanks to the nVidia Tegra GPU.
