Asus Eee Pad Slider official page breaks cover

We have talked several times about the cool Asus Eee Pad Slider. This cool little tablet has the sliding screen that pops up and tilts to let you type on an integrated keyboard. The little keys of the keyboard are the chiclet style that Asus uses on the Eee netbooks. The cool tablet is expected to land in most countries this September, which isn’t too far away at all now. The official page for the tablet has now been added to the Asus website.

ASUS delays Eee Pad Slider release: Now due Fall 2011

ASUS has updated its expected launch window for the Eee Pad Slider, with the company now claiming the Honeycomb slate with a QWERTY surprise won't launch in the UK until sometime this autumn (aka fall). Previously, ASUS had promised an August release for the Slider, having already delayed the Android tablet at least once. Unveiled alongside the Eee Pad Transformer back at CES 2011, the Eee Pad Slider has a 10.1-inch touchscreen and NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset, but also includes a sliding/tilting QWERTY keyboard. Unlike the 'board offered for the Transformer, which can be detached or turn the tablet into a netbook of sorts, the Slider's hides behind the body of the slate itself. Reports back in February suggested the Eee Pad Slider would go on sale in mid-April, though unspecified delays have pushed that back. There's no official word from ASUS as to its reasoning, but we've heard some talk that the hinge mechanism could have presented issues. [device id=629]

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer due in North America April 26 2011

One of the most anticipated Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets of the moment has finally had its North American launch detailed. The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer will land in the US and Canada on April 26, priced from $399 for the 16GB slate-only model. The 32GB version will be $499, while the keyboard dock will be a further $149. The latter has an integrated battery that, together with the Eee Pad's own battery, is good for up to 16hrs of continuous use. Otherwise there's the usual blend of Tegra 2, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, twin cameras and HDMI connectivity. The Eee Pad Transformer does distinguish itself with a brilliant IPS display, with excellent viewing angles. [vms 1f9b250ba689db6a0222] [via SlashGear]

ASUS Eee Pad MeMO Honeycomb & full specs confirmed [Update: Video & Price]

ASUS has confirmed that the Eee Pad MeMO will run Android 3.0 Honeycomb when it arrives later this year, with the 7-inch tablet taking on the HTC Flyer with its hybrid stylus/finger input. jkkmobile spotted the confirmation on an ASUS product sheet at CeBIT 2011 this week, along with confirmation of all the MeMO's specs. The tablet has a 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen, 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8260 processor, quadband HSPA+ support, WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. There's also 1GB of RAM and between 8GB and 64GB of onboard storage, along with twin cameras - 5-megapixel with LED flash on the back, 1.2-megapixels up front - and a micro HDMI port. Other connectivity includes microUSB with Host support, a 3.5mm headphone jack, microSDHC and a twin microphone array; there's also a digital compass, gyroscope, g-sensor, proximity sensor and light sensor. ASUS reckons the Eee Pad MeMO is good for up to 8hrs video or music playback on a full charge. Update: Honeycomb isn't the only surprise ASUS has; jkkmobile has shot a video of the slate (still currently running Android 2.2) with its Bluetooth handset accessory, a remote-control that can be also used to answer calls, so you don't need to hold the MeMO itself to your head. It also has a transparent screen. According to ASUS Germany, the Eee Pad MeMO is expected to retail for around €499 ($690) for the 8-16GB model, or €699 for the 32-64GB model, with the Bluetooth handset; that certainly undercuts the €669 Flyer at the low end.
