An intuitive typing experience with the slide-out QWERTY keyboard:

Touch screen tablets are a must-have gadget for entertaining, working and connecting whilst on the move but can be awkward when it comes to typing at length, with on-screen keyboards proving inaccurate and difficult to use. 

The ASUS Eee Pad Slider offers a unique feature to overcome this shortcoming – a nifty slide-out QWERTY keyboard which presents users with an efficient and natural way to type long emails, blog posts and word documents without strain. 

10 finger multi-touch support extends user interaction from traditional typing right through to modern touch screen tasks, with finger gestures such as pinching and scrolling allowing a highly intuitive navigation and browsing experience. 

Although tablet screens are open to the elements, the Eee Pad Slider offers a reassuring solution, integrating the super-strong yet lightweight Corning® Gorilla® glass for a scratch (and worry) resistant finish. 

A tailored web experience with Google Android™ & Android Market:

The Eee Pad Slider is preloaded with Google Android 3.1 (Android™ 3.2 upgradeable*), an operating system designed and optimised specifically for the tablet platform. 

With Adobe® Flash® enabled** it promises a full web experience both at home and on the move, whilst Google Android™ Market offers users the means to expand their experience with a choice of thousands of applications to download including popular choices such as Angry Birds, Facebook and Twitter, to a whole range of others including games, music, social networking, education, news and more. 

Rich visuals and wide angle viewing for a quality movie experience:

Boasting a 10" IPS display and 16:10 golden ratio, the Eee Pad Slider delivers stunning visuals for video and movies and ensures users won't need to compromise between portability and entertainment quality. What's more, with a 178 degree wide viewing angle in pad mode, it's perfect for multi-player gaming action, too.  

The Eee Pad Slider also features a mini-HDMI output and supports HD video playback and surround sound systems, allowing users to easily watch media on a larger home entertainment system, making it a must-have for parties and presentations alike. 

ASUS Waveface makes streaming, storage and sharing a breeze:

The Eee Pad Slider features the ASUS Waveface interface, which plays host to a set of helpful and unique utilities:

* MyNet: In 3 simple steps you can wirelessly stream media content between devices around the home including desktops and TV. 

* MyLibrary: A clever way to consolidate your must-read books and magazines into one easy-to-navigate profile. Supporting PDF and ePub formats, it offers global content including Googlebooks, and a set of handy utilities to make reading easier including a dictionary, translator, bookmarker, notes and even text-to-speech (requires app download). 

* MyCloud: Easy access to cloud content including WebStorage (1 year free trial with every Eee Pad Slider) and the ASUS @Vibe media library which offers downloads of a huge range of music, video and games.

* MyDesktop: A secure remote log-in application which lets you control files and applications on your other devices via the Eee Pad Slider – including Android, Windows or Mac computers. So, if you forget to email an important file to work and it's still on your home computer, you can connect to Desktop and get your project finished on time. 

The Eee Pad Slider is also preloaded with Polaris Office 3 – a professional standard productivity suite which supports the viewing and editing of popular formats including PowerPoint (.ppt), Excel (.xls) and Word (.doc), making it easier than ever to keep on track with work outside the office.

Fast performance and technology for speedy sharing:

Whether users are browsing the web, watching HD movies, listening to music or doing all of the above at once, the Eee Pad Slider is blazing fast thanks to the NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2 dual core processor. 

A superb 5MP rear-facing web camera means users can snap and share high quality pictures anywhere, anytime. The additional 1.2MP front-facing camera makes it easier to enjoy video conferencing at work or with friends.

The Eee Pad Slider also features a built-in USB port, a 16/32GB eMMC slot and a Micro SD reader – allow users a choice of ways in which to quickly transfer and share data between other computers, phones and cameras.
