The Asus Slider tablet is available for pre-order from just $479 for the 16GB version.
The slider was announced at the beginning of the year along with the very popular (and best selling) Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet, which is available with an optional keyboard accessory which also contains a touchpad, extra battery and ports, essentially turning it into a Android powered laptop. The Asus Eee Pad Slider on the other hand is the very first tablet on the market which contains a built in keyboard, which is accessed by, you guessed it, sliding the tablet.
The number one complaint for tablet users is the lack of physical keyboard, Asus has recognized this, and built the first tablet with an on board physical keyboard.
The Eee Pad Slider and the Eee Pad Transformer have very similar specifications. With a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 pixel resolution IPS display, powered by the 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core processor, and running Google Andriod 3.2 operating system.
You can pre-order the 16GB Eee Pad slider from amazon for $479, or the 32GB version for $579.
Update: Looks like someone at Amazon jumped the gun, they have now removed the pages. We’re sure that it will soon be backup at Amazon in the next few days.
