Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101 in the flesh!
This is probably the first Honeycomb tablet we’ve seen that actually comes with a built-in full keyboard and the twin-brother of the Asus Transformer — the Asus Slider SL101.
Unlike the Asus Transformer, the Asus Slider has a built-in keyboard that slides out from the back and serves as a stand/platform.
As such, it’s a bit chunkier at 17.3mm — very thick for a tablet but still thinner than most netbooks out there.
The specs are pretty standard for an Android tablet:
Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101 specs:
10.1″ LED IPS display @ 1280×800 pixels
NVidia Tegra 2 1.0GHz processor
16GB & 32GB internal storage
WiFi 80211 b/g/n
5MP rear camera
1.2MP front-facing camera
25Wh Li-Po battery, up to 8 hours
Android 3.1 Honeycomb
What you actually get are additional ports and connectivity because of the space provided by the keyboard, like a full USB 2.0 port.
I am told the unit will not be available in the Philippines before November 2011. As for the price, it’s still not fixed but will definitely be a couple thousands cheaper than the Asus Transformer w/ Dock so I’m guessing Php25k to Php27k range.
