ASUS Eee Pad Slider Tablet Grows a Keyboard. Say, Isn’t that Called a Netbook?

 |  |  |  |  |  |  August 16, 2011

Information about this tablet was originally released back in January during CES, but I haven’t heard much about it until this week. It’s set to launch in September with two different models. Do you think it make sense to have an integrated keyboard on your tablet? If the answer is yes, then the ASUS Eee Pad Slider could be for you.

The tablets will be powered by Android 3.1 (upgradeable to 3.2) and will come in brown and white colors. There will be a $400 (USD), 16GB version and a $500, 32 GB version. Both will have a multitouch 10.1-inch WXGA screen (1280×800) with a dual-core Tegra processor. They will offer 802.11/b/g/n and Bluetooth V2.1+EDR connectivity, as well as USB and Mini HDMI connectors.  There’s also 1.2MP front-facing camera and a 5MP rear-facing one. In addition, expect a G-sensor, light sensor, gyroscope, compass and GPS to be built-in as well.

Once the reviews are in, we’ll know if this is something that’s going to work. Obviously, a lot of people are using keyboards with their tablets already. This might cut down a bit on the weight of carrying a separate keyboard. Or you could just use a netbook.
