The Asus Eee Pad Slider continues to receive various “potential” and “rumored” release dates which have alluded us thus far, however we do finally have some good news, specs for the Asus device have been revealed.
The company’s product page says the tablet will release in September (no exact date given) and will feature a 10.1″ display with 1280 x 80 WXGA pixels of resolution, alongside two memory options: 16GB for €479 ($400) and 32GB for €599 ($550) plus 1GB memory.
Both device options will feature Google Android 3.1 with a promised 3.2 upgrade once available, alongside a QWERTY keyboard and dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor.
The Asus Eee Pad Slider also comes equipped with 5 megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera for video conference calling.
Asus has also thrown in some decent connectivity thanks to USB 2.0, mini-HDMI and microSD card reader, along with WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity options.
Users will also receive a free year of “unlimited ASUS Web Storage” which complements the devices available use of cloud computing.
With no “official” release date given to the device we now play the waiting game until sometime towards the beginning of September when a release date has been promised, although we’ve heard that one before.
With Google Android Honeycomb quickly developing into a worthwhile iPad competitor, just as Google did with their mobile Android operating system versus Apple’s iOS, it will be interesting to see if Asus can launch a successful tablet this time around. What do you think about the Asus Eee Pad Slider’s price points based on the specifications delivered?
