Here’s the deal. If you yearn to minimize what you carry along on a daily basis, the Asus Eee Pad Slider is the perfect solution as it already incorporates a physical keyboard – even if it’s on the cramped side. Not to mention,...

The Slider comes with an integrated keyboard and this is its strongest point. The keyboard is somewhat cramped but it beats serious typing on the touchscreen. The only real downside to the slide keyboard is its fixed angle.Its main competitors are...

Asus take a shot at a tablet all-rounder and almost hits a home run. Apart from the high weight and the mediocre quality of the keyboard, we would consider the main tablet criteria as met. The workmanship is very good and the sliding mechanism works...

We're impressed with the specifications of the Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101 and found it good to use in Tablet mode. The keyboard is welcome too, but we think Asus should have put a bit more thought into the physical design. ...

The slide-out keyboard is the Eee Pad Slider SL101's key feature and it's probably the make-or-break feature if you're considering a purchase. There are two important factors to weigh up: its usability and the effect on the device's...

Though thicker and heavier than the fondleslab-norm the Slider makes a lot of sense if you intend to do any serious typing or are always looking for a way to prop your tablet up while watching a video, making a Skype video call or reading a book....

The Slider is another excellent device from Asus, proving that the Taiwanese company makes the best Android tablets in the market. If the cramped nature of the keyboard doesn't suit, it still has you covered with the Eee Pad Transformer and keyboard...

At the moment, while touchscreens seem to be the way of the future, many users just aren’t ready to give up their keyboards as yet, which is why this ‘best of both worlds’ option from Asus seems like such a winner. Often, hybrid...

Like the Asus Transformer, the company’s Eee Pad Slider pairs the slate form factor with a keyboard. Unlike the Transformer, the Slider feels more like real tablet than a netbook. One of the most purchased accessories for tablets is a wireless...

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...

The Asus Eee Pad Slider's keyboard sets it apart from the handful of Android Honeycomb tablets that can only clearly be separated by a few minor aesthetic differences and connectivity tweaks. It's one of the most interesting Android tablets of...

It works fine and the screen is great, but the weight and bulk let it down...

The Eee Pad Slider is pretty much on the money for what it is – a 32GB Transformer (with keyboard attachment) costs around £430, so £450 for a sleeker, more complex alternative is reasonable. Remember that the Transformer’s base...

We were totally taken by the Eee Pad Transformer when it came out because it did something different to the iPad, and so gave itself room to breathe away from the tablet big guns.Now its brother, the Asus Eee Pad Slider has arrived, and manages to...
