ASUS Eee Pad Slider Going On Sale Soon, It May Cost Between $500-$800

ASUS’ Eee Pad might still be difficult to track down, but at least all
systems are go for the company’s other Honeycomb tablet, the Eee Pad
Slider. Asus introduced the Eee Pad Slider at CES in January, but the
company’s been pretty quite about the Android tablet with a slide-out
keyboard ever since.

The company has posted a few teaser photos of the tablet on
TechInStyle.tv, but there are no big surprises. While the company says
the tablet has gone through additional testing since January, the only
major change I can see is that the mockups show Android 3.x Honeycomb
rather than Android 2.2 Froyo.

The company confirmed that the 10.1-inch tablet, originally slated
for May, is “coming soon” no word, of course, on whether it will ditch
Tegra 2 for an Atom Z670 CPU, as rumored. Next up, ASUS, give us a
price, capiche? Last time we checked, the company was estimating it
would cost between $500 and $800, so your guess is as good as ours as to
how sweet a value this will be. There’s no word on pricing, but Asus
will have more details during a pre-Computex news conference on May
30th.

You can check out my demo video from CES showing how the sliding
mechanism works after the break. In a nutshell, the Slider is a lot like
the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, except that instead of offering an
optional keyboard docking station, the Slider come standard with a
keyboard that’s always with you since it tucks away behind the screen.
