The ASUS Eee Pad Slider is yet another unique product for ASUS, that already has a hit on its hands: the Eee Pad Transformer, selling 400k units a month. This time we’re getting a treat that consists of a product that should have come earlier, the Eee Pad Slider, the slate with a sliding QWERTY segment.
This device has just popped up in the August catalog for Portuguese electronics retailer Phone House. The device is listed with 349 euro price tag and it comes with the classic specs of a Honeycomb slate: dual core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, WiFi, Bluetooth, A-GPS and mini HDMI. This model debuted at CES together with the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, that’s already known success.
I’m not yet sold on the whole slide and tilt idea, that reminds of a Nokia model or two… Speculations say we might also see an Intel Oak Trail version of the device, but nothing has been confirmed just yet. The price mentioned above translates to $467 and it comes with a ZON contract, while off contract, you’ll pay $684 for the slider slate. Will this 10 incher also sell well?
