Asus Eee Pad Slider Review
8 February 2012
Conclusion: Here’s the deal. If you yearn to minimize what you carry along on a daily basis, the Asus Eee Pad Slider is the perfect solution as it already incorporates a physical keyboard – even if it’s on the cramped side. Not to mention, it’s also the only Android tablet on the market to sport this form factor.
Pros: Incorporates a keyboard, Good battery life
Cons: Extremely bulky and heavy, Subpar camera, Inconvenient positioning of its speakers
Excerpt: Over the last two years computer makers have flooded the market with tablets. The best of these devices tend to be thinner and lighter than laptops, offer better battery life, and always-on features including the ability to receive incoming email or instant messages even when the display is off.
Conclusion: Asus take a shot at a tablet all-rounder and almost hits a home run. Apart from the high weight and the mediocre quality of the keyboard , we would consider the main tablet criteria as met. The workmanship is very good and the sliding mechanism works perfectly. Although the screen only has a low maximum brightness (for tablet standards), the viewing angles and colors are on a high level .
Pros: Keyboard always at hand, Standby can be disabled, Screenshot key, Wide viewing angles (IPS), Good contrast, Video out, Full-size USB port, Long battery life, Short battery charge time (2-3h), Stable hinge, non-slip bottom, Timeout can finally be disabled, the Slider is permanently on. The folding mechanism seems well-designed and is stable.

In addition, the Slider also comes with a 5-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera (for video calls), Wi-Fi connectivity; while NVidia's dual-core Tegra 2 CPU provides all the processing power needed to run things smoothly.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Excerpt: Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101 Review Manufacturer Asus UK price (as reviewed) Around £450 inc VAT US price (as reviewed) $579 (ex tax) (for 32GB version) After engaging Autobots to design its last tablet , Asus has avoided groan-worthy jokes with its latest Slider Eee Pad. The Eee Pad Transformer was a tablet with an add-on keyboard section (which also housed an extra battery), making it ideal for when you wanted to switch between portability or doing some serious work.
Excerpt: It seemed, just a couple of years back, that almost every week was topped off by the introduction of a new netbook . Remember those things? We haven't seen much in the way of new netbook technology lately, but we have seen plenty of tablets. The iPad started a modern-day revitalization of the slate PC market, and while Apple has dominated the market, rival companies have been pushing out tablet after tablet in an effort to grab their piece of the pie.
Pros: Beautiful design, Great battery life, Good graphics performance, Android 3.2, Great key travel / feel
Cons: 0, Glossy display is really glossy, Oversized bezel, Not enough tablet apps in Android Market... still
