Reviews Word on the street for the Asus Eee Pad Slider


6.4
Like the Transformer, the Slider’s 10.1-inch, 1280 x 800-resolution IPS display is very high quality and quite impressive for the price.

8.0
The 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display has very wide viewing angles (178 degrees), with good color saturation and high contrast.

8.0
The user-facing 1.3-megapixel camera is much more useful, letting you use Android video chat apps and Photobooth-style fun apps.

9.0
The Asus Eee Pad Slider earns itself a huge tick in the performance column in one very simply way: this is the smoothest Android tablet we've seen yet.

7.3
Rounding out the connections along the right spine are a headphone jack and full-size USB 2.0 slot.

7.0
Not surprisingly, the Gmail and standard email apps are appropriately laid out to take advantage of the spacious confines available with the tablet – so organizing emails is a pleasure to handle.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

Just like before, we’re content with its quality thanks to its pleasant looking details, wide viewing angles, high-contrast appearance, and realistic color production.
by PhoneArena (Feb, 2012)
More than that, though, colours are vibrant and hugely appealing, and the viewing angles are excellent.
by TechRadar (Oct, 2011)
Of course, the entire experience is more than satisfactory as we’re treated to pleasing looking details, accurate colors, and a smooth playback.
by PhoneArena (Feb, 2012)

Battery

The tablet can play more than 6 hours of video, making it more than capable of handling a transcontinental flight.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)
Offering a wide range of keys, it's got options for Home, Back and Menu, as well as a few keys to help you quickly conserve power if you're concerned about your battery life.
by TechRadar (Oct, 2011)
In fact, it easily satisfies our needs as it accomplishes one solid day of normal usage on a full charge.
by PhoneArena (Feb, 2012)

Apps

It can handle email, web work, Office documents along with multimedia and 3D games.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)
The Slider handled harder tasks equally as well: playing 720p high profile MPEG4 video, 1080p standard profile MPEG4 video, streaming Netflix over WiFi (Netflix is now available for all Honeycomb tablets), and Adobe Flash 11 playback.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)
The Asus Launcher is a slick widget that displays various bits of information, including the last website you left open, the currently playing music, calendar appontments, the weather, the date, and a slideshow of your photos.
by TechRadar (Oct, 2011)

Operating System

The Slider is an Android Honeycomb 3.2 tablet with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, WiFi and the usual solid Webkit web browser with Adobe Flash.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)
Android Honeycomb's browser is good, the tablet supports full Adobe Flash, the capacitive touchscreen is very responsive and the keyboard comes in handy when typing emails and web addresses.
by TrustedReviews (Mar, 2012)
Display: The Slider features the same display found on the original Transformer, which is none other than a 10.1” WXGA (1280 x 800) IPS display.
by PhoneArena (Feb, 2012)

Operating system

As tablets increasingly become work tools, we fully expect the Eee Pad Slider to be right at the forefront of the revolution, thanks to its smooth performance, stunning screen, handy software and more-than-adequate keyboard.
by TechRadar (Oct, 2011)
It’s more than capable at multitasking, though I have to say I wish Honeycomb handled navigation between multiple programs better.
by The Verge (Sep, 2011)
Other than all that, you’re looking at the familiar Honeycomb experience, and as I mentioned above, the keyboard plays quite well with the operating system, morphing the device into more of a workhorse than most of the tablets out there.
