Asus EEE Pad Slider SL101
29 December 2011
Summary: Though it prevents a "pure" tablet experience, the Asus Eee Pad Slider's built-in keyboard is a welcome feature for those who break into cold sweats whenever typing on a tablet is mentioned.
Cons: The Slider is bulky and heavy for a tablet and can't be detached from the keyboard plate. Also, the typing environment feels cramped and the curved design on the keyboard plate blocks the spacebar. No LED flash on the camera means no nighttime picture taking.
Summary: Of all the Honeycomb tablet manufacturers, Asus has been one of, if not the most successful. In May and April, the company sold 500,000 Eee Pad Transformers, with another 300,000 in June. So, why Asus and not Lenovo, Toshiba, Motorola, or one of the other many tablet makers? Because the Taiwanese company understood early on that if it was going to go toe-to-toe with the iPad it had to do two things: differentiate on form factor and on price.
Pros: Bright, high-quality IPS display, Sliding mechanism is rigid, Innovative form factor with keyboard, Keyboard is well laid out
Cons: Thick and heavy, Keyboard is overly plasticy, Very thick screen bezel, Angle of the screen can’t be adjusted beyond 45 degrees in keyboard mode

Summary: ASUS deserves some credit for trying something new in a market filled with "me too" devices, but the end result is well short of the mark. The Eee Pad Slider may have a built-in keyboard but the trade-offs come in the form of an awkward size and heavy weight. If you really want an Android tablet with a keyboard, give the Eee Pad Slider a miss and take a look at the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer instead.
Pros: Screen props up at angle when opened, Built-in keyboard, Stable software
Cons: Thick and bulky design, Questionable build quality, Keyboard is cramped
Conclusion: O Asus Slider começa a ser vendido em um momento de transição do sistema operacional Android. Primeiro, porque uma nova geração de tablets Android com processador Nvidia Tegra 3 está a caminho. Segundo, porque o Google acabou de anunciar a plataforma Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” , que pretende unificar os Androids de smartphone (2.x) com os de tablet (3.x), ao menos na interface e na integração de aplicativos (Andy Rubin, chefão do Android no Google, disse não...
