The Asus Transformer will soon have its stablemate — the Eee Pad Slider up for sale in India soon with it most likely to happen sometime in October. That’s also the time when we are most likely to witness the launch of the 3G version of the Tranformer as well. On offer will be both 16 and 32 GB versions. The Slider has already gone on sale in the UK.
As for the Slider’s specs, it isn’t anything new and shares a lot of similarities with other Honeycomb tablets in general and the Transformer in particular. Like the tablet will have Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core processor, a 1 GB RAM, Android 3.1 with Asus’ own UI built on top. On the front is the 1280 x 800 pixel 10.1 inch multi-touchscreen display that is capable of recording multitouch for 10 fingers. The Slider will also pack a 5 megapixel camera at the back while on the front lies a 1.2 megapixel unit.
However, the most interesting aspect of the Slider is its slide-out keyboard layout which when fully deployed will make it mimic a conventional notebook PC. Unlike the Transformer, the keypad is not detachable though and should appeal to those who need to type a lot and don’t like doing it using the virtual on-screen keyboard.
Pricing structure are being kept on wraps as of now.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
