ASUS reveals full Eee Pad Slider specs through its newly launched page.

Without any noticeable actions, ASUS finally kicked off an official page wherein people could take a look at the confirmed specifications for the Eee Pad Slider device. The tablet will still be sporting Tegra 2 processors, with 1GB RAM and a 16GB or 32GB storage like the Transformer. However, since the device features a built-in keyboard, the Eee Pad Slider will be much heavier — measuring 2.12 pounds and 0.68 inches deep.

Moreover, the manufacturer announced that they will be upgrading the tablet from Android 3.1 into Android 3.2.

The ASUS Eee Pad Slider also comes with plenty of ports, such as a USB, a mini HDMI, a headphone jack and a microSD slot. The 10.1-inch tablet takes pride in having a 1280×800 display resolution with great camera features similar to Transformer. It brings a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash.

This unique tablet from ASUS is slated to hit the market sometime in September 2011. Its 16GB version is expected to be retailed for $400, while the 32GB model gets a $550 price tag.

Amazon will be cutting down the cost of their tablet, and it might include the sophistication of their touchscreen.

According to DigiTimes’ sources, the decision of Amazon to cut costs on their tablet might include the refinement of the touchscreen. An off-hand industry suggested that the Android tablet would be utilizing just two-finger multi-touch, and not the 10-finger touch devices like the iPad 2 and others.

Losing the more advanced multi-touch could render the device incompatible with those several Android apps that might require more than two fingers. Apple took advantage of having much more support by enabling three and four finger gestures, as well as support for more third party apps.

Dell’s 7-inch Tablet Has a Keyboard

Written on June 10, 2011 by R. Cruise

Dell is coming up with a design that’s unlike any other tablet found in the market. Their "soon-to-come" 7-inch tablet will be packed with a keyboard.

Instead of imitating the look and feel of the iPad as with the other tablet manufacturers, Dell has apparently improved on the Apple tablet’s weakest characteristic, the keyboard. The split keyboard is part of a slide-out keypad that gives each of its users’ thumbs an easy shot at quick typing.

Dell presented the prototype in both black and white finishes. Each had a rear camera which hopefully will have better quality than the iPad. This tablet gives tech geeks a feeling of déjà vu, as it looks close to the failed tablets of five years ago that Microsoft and Intel codenamed “Project Origami.”
