Asus Eee Pad Slider / 3G Transformer UK release date update

Back in March we brought you a price and release date update for the much-anticipated Asus Eee Pad Slider tablet, which we said was due to arrive sometime in June. We now have another UK release date update for you however, as Asus now say to expect the Android tablet to arrive in August.

According to a recent article by Lewis Curdie over at, the company has recently confirmed that the Asus Eee Pad Slider will arrive in the UK sometime in August, as will the 3G model of the Eee Pad Transformer. The Eee Pad Transformer has only been available as a Wi-Fi-only model up until now.

For those that may need reminding of its features, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is powered by a 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, runs the Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS and comes with a 10.1-inch screen. The Asus Eee Pad Slider has many of the same specs, as well as front and rear-facing cameras.

Where the Asus Eee Pad Slider differs however is in the fact that it comes with a sliding QWERTY keyboard, which slides out from behind its screen and can be angled to allow for laptop-style typing. Although Lewis notes that this does make the Asus Eee Pad tablet noticeably heavier.

Will you be buying the Asus Eee Pad Slider or the 3G model of the Transformer?
