Could we finally see the ASUS Eee Pad Slider in September? The Slider was announced at CES back in January, but there has only been rumors. A new product page that shows off the Slider’s specs hints at a September launch in Italy.
They plan to offer 16GB and 32GB models for €479 ($400) and €479 ($550) respectively. It will have a 10.1-inch (1280 x 800) screen, dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB RAM, 5MP rear camera, 1.2MP front camera, USB 2.0, mini-HDMI, microSD card reader, WiFI, and Bluetooth.
It will apparently ship with Android 3.1 Honeycomb, and it will be upgraded to Android 3.2 shortly thereafter. This is a little disappointing since the Transformer already has the upgrade. A September launch should be sufficient time to get the Slider updated by then. Of course, it might be that the initial units are already produced, and it would be too much of a pain to get them updated in time. I am willing to assume that is the case, and they will push the updats within the first week of launch.
Looks like the wait it finally over. Who is going to grab one of these?
