Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101 in the flesh!

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
Bluetooth 2.1
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.

      There are two types of Asus Transformers. One is the Transformer TF101 which comes with an optional dock keyboard and is priced at about 400 USD sans the kb or plus 125 USD with the kb. The Transformer SL101 which has a built in keyboard is really more expensive because of this feature. So I wonder whether the Singapore price of the Transformer you were saying refers to the TF101 or the SL101?
