The Eee Pad Slider Android Tablet is one of the “most creative” Android tablets launched at CES 2011 this year. It features a “sliding keyboard so the end-user has access to a physical keyboard while providing a built-in tablet stand.
The problem with most tablet devices out right now such as an iPad, is that it requires the user to use it at and awkward angle or even have to go out and buy an additional external keyboard to get real office work done.
The Eee Pad Slider is simple but revolutionary, coupled with the latest hardware specs (double most tablets out right now) like the Tegra 2 processor.
What the Eee Pad Slider does well is allowing business users and others to ditch their netbook/laptop forever. Although it won’t completely replace a powerful Intel Core i7 gaming laptop for gamers and graphic designers, it will certainly be powerful enough for the average user.
The Eee Pad will sport the Google 3.0 Honeycomb tablet OS, 7-inch 1280×800 resolution screen, mini-HDMI outputs for 1080P output/mirroring to HDTV, miniUSB ports, and microSD slot.
It also has a dual camera with LED flash on the back and all of this boils down to weight of 2.2 pounds at 0.5 inches thick.
If you don’t want the keyboard, you can always get the Eee Pad Memo but certainly I think this is much better device due to the innovative integration of a keyboard.
The final verdict?
The Eee Pad Slider Android tablet gets “Best Business Android tablet” of CES 2011 Award from us at AndroidTabletReview.com for practicality, design, and performance.
The Eee Pad Slider will be available starting at $499 later this year May 2011.
