Asus has built itself a reputation for producing innovative and impressive tablets. The Android-based Eee Pad Transformer TF101, for example, which comes with a detachable keyboard, impressed us a lot. Now a new Android Eee Pad has become available — the Slider SL101. As its name implies, rather than having a separate detachable keyboard, the Eee Pad Slider has a keyboard that emerges from beneath the screen.

ASUS was the first and only vendor to offer a 10-inch tablet with a keyboard attachment that turned the device into a clamshell-style Android notebook. The Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 achieves an even bigger first, as it is the first tablet powered by Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 CPU. However, with a slim design, super-bright IPS screen, sharp camera, and comfy keyboard dock, it's now the Android tablet to beat.

It seemed, just a couple of years back, that almost every week was topped off by the introduction of a new netbook. Remember those things? We haven't seen much in the way of new netbook technology lately, but we have seen plenty of tablets. The iPad started a modern-day revitalization of the slate PC market, and while Apple has dominated the market, rival companies have been pushing out tablet after tablet in an effort to grab their piece of the pie. One thing we've noticed is the great variety in form factors. Whereas the iPad basically just comes in two flavors, those content with Android can have their pick when it comes to design.

There's the standard, flat slate (like the Galaxy Tab 10.1), slates with docking stations, and now, a slate with a built-in, slide-out keyboard. That's right, a keyboard that's built right in, no Bluetooth or accessory cases necessary. Asus' Eee Pad Slider was actually introduced as a concept product back at CES, nearly three seasons ago. That's an eternity in computing years, but it takes time to get a radical design like this just right. The Slider is no doubt the cousin to the Transformer, but the difference here is the tight integration with the keyboard. We'll dive into the usability in the pages to come; for now, let's have a look at the specifications.
