Subsidized Eee Pad Slider to cost 349 euros
The delayed Eee Pad Slider will soon be available in Europe, as it popped up in the Portuguese online flyer at Phone House. The sliding 10.1-inch tablet will run on Android 3, and the 16GB model is priced at 349 euros (nearly $500) with a contract with ZON. While it's due to arrive for the UK in August, a US release date hasn't yet been announced but is expected soon.
The tablet uses a dual-core, 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, GPS, mini HDMI output, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The tablet is a unique mix between a netbook and tablet, as it has a QWERTY keyboard and a sliding screen that sit at about 45 degrees once opened. [via Engadget]
