Asus Eee Pad Slider: Specs and Review of Ice Cream Sandwich Tablets

The Asus Eee Pad Slider attempts to offer is the tablet based alternative to someone who wants to shift from a netbook or a laptop, but, is driven up the wall at the very mention of typing on a touchscreen.

The built-in QWERTY keyboard offers a much more comfortable typing experience. The Eee Pad Slider provides intuitive tablet usage while simulating a laptop-like user experience that people are more familiar with.

Easily change your Eee Pad Slider from a tablet to a notebook with just one slide. With 16/32GB eMMc, MicroSD Card Reader, USB port, and ASUS WebStorage (unlimited one year service), you can store and share your data anytime and anywhere.

Surprisingly, the battery life isn't as good as some of the Android tablets out there. The Slider will last about 6 hours under a mixed use scenario - some videos, web browsing and document typing with the brightness set at 60% and Wi-Fi connected throughout.
