ASUS Eee Pad Slider, análisis

 

Como ya hemos ido describiendo a lo largo de todo el análisis, la idea de ASUS de convertir al Slider en una especie de netvertible autosuficiente nos ha parecido de lo más interesante. Puede que su tamaño y peso con respecto a otros dispositivos...

Asus EEE Pad Slider SL101 review

 

Thanks to their slim designs, touch screens, and light weights, tablets have taken off in the last few years as a popular alternative to Netbooks and, in some cases, even laptops. However, a tablet screen isn't the most ideal environment for typing.

The Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101's keyboard mechanism is well-implemented and useful to those frustrated with typing on a tablet screen. Also, the inclusion of Mini-HDMI, a microSD card slot, USB 2.0, and the latest version of Honeycomb makes this tablet...

The Slider is bulky and heavy for a tablet and can't be detached from the keyboard plate. Also, the typing environment feels cramped and the curved design on the keyboard plate blocks the spacebar. No LED flash on the camera means no nighttime picture...

Though it prevents a "pure" tablet experience, the Asus Eee Pad Slider's built-in keyboard is a welcome feature for those who break into cold sweats whenever typing on a tablet is mentioned.

I understand the appeal of tablets. Regardless of OS, they all provide a far more intimate experience when browsing the web and reading emails. I genuinely prefer doing both of those things on a tablet than on a notebook or desktop. Then there are the...

ASUS Eee Pad Slider SL101

 

The ASUS Eee Pad Slider SL101 is the first Android tablet with a slide-out keyboard, making it a good choice for work and play.

If you plan to do a lot of text entry on your tablet, you have two choices: buy and carry a separate keyboard dock or get the Eee Pad Slider and keep the QWERTY with you at all times. If you don't mind carrying a bulkier set of gear, the Eee Pad...

Keyboard built in, Full-size USB port, Good performance, IPS display with wide viewing angles

Keyboard always at hand; Standby can be disabled; Screenshot key; Wide viewing angles (IPS); Good contrast; Video out; Full-size USB port; Long battery life; Short battery charge time (2-3h); Stable hinge, non-slip bottom

High weight; Unusual keyboard

How fast a tablet can mutate to a small tabletop PC - no matter if in the kitchen, living room, bathroom or on the train. Working with the tablet is more efficient.
