The new slider tablet will have a 10.1 inch LCD display screen with an 800 X 1280 pixel resolution which was exactly the specification of the previous tablet version of Asus, the Transformer Pad. The screen looks richer with good viewing angles and the icons which seem to pop out a bit is pretty impressive. The key board docked to Asus EEE Pad Slider is a QWERTY keyboard but it does lack a track pad on the keyboard which is disappointing. The USB port provided can be used to connect an external mouse which will be a relief especially when transition from touch screen to keyboard gets very irritating while working with text documents.
The OS of this Asus tablet pc is certainly an Android Honeycomb 3.0 and it's expected to get an upgrade very soon to a v3.1. The new slider tablet gets very fluid to work on with the Nvidia Tegra 2 Dual Core Processor which is good. The interface hasn't got much make over and thus offers a typical Android experience. This Asus tablet pc has a 1GB RAM too.
Other characteristic features include a 5MP camera provided in the rear which can capture superior quality pictures and videos. The front facing camera however is a VGA, but that shouldn't affect a quality video chatting or calling. But it would've been more useful if the 5MP was provided in the front, when the Asus tablet pcs are less known to be used by the people for photography. The enhanced connectivity specifications in the Asus EEE Pad Slider model consists of a USB 2.0 with a mini HDMI, an efficient Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices. The memory capacity options are available in two with either a 16 GB inbuilt or a 32GB with a memory expandable option of up to 32GB. The Asus Eee Pad Slider Tablet will be launched this summer in selected countries. The launch date in India is still not announced. But it's estimated to cost about RS. 35000 in India.
