Eee Pad Slider
Asus Eee Pad Slider
The Slider secretes a keyboard inside its slender frame. It runs Honeycomb and has a 10.1-inch, 1280 by 800-pixel screen. It comes with 1GB of RAM, an optional 3G module and a front 1.2-megapixel and a rear 5-megapixel camera.
To access the keyboard, your hand needs to cradle the base of the tablet and your index finger on your opposing hand must place forward pressure on a latch on the top edge of the tablet.
It took three attempts and instruction by a nearby Asus representative to reveal the keyboard. Typing feels comfortable, and the angle for the tablet means that — as long as you get its height right — it is comfortable to use.
The Tegra 2-powered device felt snappy and responsive. The slider will range in price between €499 and €799 and will be available in Europe in June, Asus said.
