ASUS unveils Eee Pad Slider and Eee Pad Transformer

Today at CES 2011, ASUS unveiled two new tablet computers called the Eee Pad Slider and Eee Pad Transformer. The new family of devices has four different styles for any user to enjoy. The Eee Pad Slider comes with a 10.1-inch IPS touchscreen, but it also features a full QWERTY keyboard that slides out for those of you that hate on-screen keyboards.

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is a slim, lightweight design with a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen. The transformer lives up to its name by having a slide-out keyboard and a detachable screen for ultimate portability. The Transformer comes with an extended battery for up to 16-hours of life. Both of these devices come with a 1.2MP front-facing camera, 5MP rear camera, for both photos and video, a built in mini-HDMI port, full 1080p HD video playback. Both tablets will also run Android 3.0 (Homecomb), powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset that supports Adobe Flash and HD content.

The ASUS Eee Pad MeMO features many of the same features as the Slider and Transformer, but has a 7.1-inch capacity touchscreen, which makes it ultra-mobile. The small device runs Android 3.0, features a Micro-HDMI port for an external display for full 1080p playback.

The ASUS Eee Slate EP121 is a full PC-experience slate. The Intel Core i5 dual-core processor powers the 12.1-inch LED-backlit display with a 1280x800 resolution, with up to 178-degree wide angle view. The Slate EP121 runs Windows 7 Home Premium for a full PC slate experience. The capacitive touchscreen comes with a full on-screen keyboard and internal Bluetooth for external keyboards.

The Slate EP121 will be available with 32GB or 64GB of SSD storage (expandable SDXC card), up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, 2MP camera and two USB 2.0 ports. The Slate EP121 also comes with a mini-HDMI port, for external display use.
