With a design that straddles the line between tablet and laptop, the ASUS 16GB Eee Pad Slider SL101 Tablet (Pearl White) offers several computing solutions for both work and play. It's a highly-portable tablet that can be operated by either its 10.1" capacitive multi-touch screen or its built-in, sliding full QWERTY keyboard. Even the addition of a keyboard doesn't weigh this tablet down. The ultra-thin design still weighs only 960 grams. You can use the Slider upright with the touchscreen or as a netbook with the keyboard. The LED backlit display features WXGA 1280 x 800 resolution and it's protected with a full coverage, scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass panel. Plus, the vibrant touch screen benefits from amazing 10-finger multi-touch support and it affords viewing angles from up to 178° on either side.
ASUS has outfitted the Slider with an Android 3.1 Honeycomb operating system, as well as a 1.0GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor. The Tegra 2 facilitates ultra-fast web browsing, quicker response times and more efficient multi-tasking performance. In this day and age, if the tablet can't multi-task smooth and seamlessly, it won't be able to keep pace with our busy lives. This is not a problem for the Slider, since it uses a full 1.0GB of memory to aid the smooth transition between apps and the running of multiple programs at the same time. For storing all your digital media content, the Slider is loaded with 16GB of flash storage, as well as a microSD card slot for memory expansion. If that's not enough, ASUS offers buyers of the Slider one year of complimentary unlimited WebStorage.
Among this tablet's many multimedia frills, the Slider features a mini HDMI port for viewing stored and Internet content on an HDTV in 1080p full HD. Plus, HDMI supports an impressive 5.1 channel surround sound audio output as well. If you're into shooting home movies and taking lots of digital stills whenever the inspiration strikes, then the Slider is the tablet for you. The unique little hybrid features both front and rear facing cameras for shooting the world around you, as well as for video chatting with friends and family. The Slider also has an integrated mic and a high-quality speaker that features supreme SRS Sound with maximum bass response for sharing media right on your tablet's vibrant 10.1" touch screen.
The superior SRS Sound technology actually provides a dynamic 3D stereo audio experience as you watch the latest movies and shows right on your tablet. There's even a 2-in-1 audio jack that affords connection of either headphones or an external microphone through the same 3.5 mm jack. If you're an Internet junkie, you can use the Slider's built-in WiFi to connect to the web at any WiFi hot spot or from the comfort of your own home if you have a wireless network set up. The Slider also supports Bluetooth V 2.1 +EDR, so you can wirelessly connect peripherals to the tablet via Bluetooth. As an added bonus, the Slider is equipped to stream video or audio to a DLNA television or stereo.
Besides great function, the ASUS Slider also affords spectacular style and innovative design. It looks great and feels great in your hands. As you turn the Slider back and forth in your grasp, the G-sensor automatically shifts the view from landscape to portrait orientation. If you need directions, the Slider can act as an E-compass, as well as your average GPS device. There's a gyroscope and an ambient light sensor, which adjusts automatically to the ambient lighting. This intelligent design saves you battery power and money that would typically be spent on energy. The Slider can survive for up to eight hours on a single charge. Plus, the lithium-polymer battery is rechargeable for continuous fun whether you're at home or on the road. Unfortunately, the car charger is sold separately, but the tablet does come with accessories like an integrated tactile keyboard. Plus, the Android OS ensures that you'll never get bored, since the Android App Market grows larger and larger every day - offering hundreds of apps that will help you in the office and entertain you on the long commute home.
