Asus has started selling the Eee Pad Slider in the US with a 16GB and 32GB versions to choose from. Priced at US$479 (about RM1,500) for the 16GB version and US$579 (RM1,817) for the 32GB version, the Eee Pad Slider features an updated NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor (Tegra 250 3D) with an uprated CPU and GPU (1.2GHz and 400MHz respectively versus 1Ghz and 300Mhz on the Eee Pad Transformer).
Other than that the Slider features the same sized 10.1-inch IPS LCD screen, microSD slot and miniHDMI port as the Eee Pad Transformer (sans keyboard dock) but adds a built-in full size USB port.
The US pricing of the Eee Pad Transformer is very close to its Malaysian retail price so expect to see the Eee Pad Slider follow the same convention. In this case we’re expecting the Slider to sell for around RM1,800 for the 16GB version when it gets here. Only thing is, we’re not sure when it will get here, if at all.
In any case, who’s interested in the Slider? Sound off in the comments section.
