ASUS Eee Pad Slider gets official page

ASUS has quietly posted an official page for the Eee Pad Slider that confirms many of its details. The unique tablet has the same Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB or 32GB of storage as the Transformer but, because of the built-in keyboard, will necessarily be a lot bulkier at 0.68 inches deep and 2.12 pounds. It should ship with Android 3.1 from the start and already has a promise of upgrading to at least Android 3.2.

Without a keyboard dock of its own, all expansion is dictated by the tablet itself and includes one each of USB, mini HDMI, a headphone jack, and a microSD slot. Cameras are the same as on the Transformer and bring a five-megapixel rear camera with a 1.2-megapixel front camera. Display quality is still a comparative focus, as it has the same 10-inch panel as the Transformer.

The Slider is expected to reach many countries in September. A 16GB edition should cost the same $400 as a Transformer in the US but may get an unusually steep $550 price for the 32GB design. [via Notebook Italia]
