The Asus Eee Pad Slider coming to U.S. this month Asus has announced the Eee Pad Slider will finally hit the U.S. this month.
The much-hyped and long-awaited tablet will be available by the end of the month, in two models.

For $475 you can get the 16GB model and for an extra $100 you can jump up to 32GB.

The Slider runs on a Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor, has a 10.1-inch (1280 x 800) LED-backlit touchscreen, a full QWERTY keypad, 1GB RAM, dual cameras (5MP and 1.2MP), GPS, a G-sensor, an e-compass, an ambient light sensor, a microSD card slot, an USB 2.0 port, and a mini HDMI output.

Finally, the tablets run on Android 3.2 Honeycomb and will be upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich in the future.

Could use another gig of RAM but this is exactly the concept I've been waiting on. A true hybrid between tablet and notebook while keeping the general weight of the tablet side. Disappointed in those cameras too.
