The 10 inch ASUS Slider is the brother to the popular Transformer tablet, however where the Transformer’s keyboard is detachable, the Slider’s keyboard is integrated and ready for use, so you’ll never forget it.

The half size keyboard keeps the tablet thin and is revealed when you pop the display upwards.

With the display popped up, this gives a natural angle to work on, and the two modes can be interchanged at any time on the fly.

Inside the Slider is the Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core CPU, 1GB of memory and 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. The storage can be expanded locally via the USB port or microSD slot on the sides and mini HDMI means it can connect up to any HDTV directly, without the need for an adapter.

Like the Transformer the display is an IPS panel with 1,280 x 800 pixels, and the OS is currently Android 3.1, although ASUS is committed to future updates as Google releases them.

802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 provide internet connectivity in the launch model, with 3G versions arriving at a later date.

With an accelerometer, gyroscope, digital compass and GPS built in it’s perfect for taking out and about .

With around a 9 hour battery life it should keep going all day, although it can be charged over USB if necessary.

Despite the similarities the Slider and Transformer represent choice in design from ASUS, so you can get something that really fits your needs, rather than just a basic pad.
