Asus Eee Slider
Asus offers Android and Windows tablets

ASUS has been feeling the pressure in the tablet market as the sales and popularity of netbook has waned. It's no surprise to see the tech firm enter the tablet market. ASUS has unveiled the full range of its new tablets officially at CES after we caught an early glimpse at the tablets late last month.

ASUS' chairman Jonney Shih unveiled the line of tablets at CES and the line includes the Eee Pad Slider, Eee Pad Transformer, Eee Pad MeMO, and the Eee Slate EP121. The line offers three screen sizes and some modes use Windows 7 Home Premium while others run Android.

The Eee Pad Slider is more like a convertible netbook than a pure tablet with a screen that can convert into tablet mode. The screen is a 10.1-inch IPS unit and the keyboard hides underneath. Power for the rig comes from NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and a GeForce GPU powers graphics. It also has front and rear cameras with Android 3.0 for the OS,

The Eee Pad Transformer is another tablet that has a docking station that turns it into a normal notebook with QWERTY keyboard. The machine has a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen and runs Android 3.0. The machine is powered by the Tegra 2 platform and has dual cameras along with HDMI out and support for 1080p video.

The Eee Slate EP 121 is a 12.1-inch slate that has a screen resolution of 1280 x 800 and uses a Core i5 processor and runs Windows. The Slate can run Office software and will be offered with 32GB or 64GB SSDs for storage. It also has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 2-megapixel camera. Pricing and availability on the new tablets is unknown.

When I saw this tablet I was pretty excited. I think is really a great design that does a great job solving a major problem I've had with tablets, no keyboard. I think the solution Asus has come up with innovated, sleek and well executed.

I've always been a fan of Asus quality, with some exceptions related to some flopped motherboards I always tend to gravitate to Asus.
