    The Asus Eee Pad Transformer has been a pretty big hit in the Android tablet world, and now Asus will soon see if they can continue their success with a new tab. The Asus Eee Pad Slider, already talked about multiple times earlier this year, has now been confirmed for a release date of September in Europe. Interestingly, it will be released in South Africa first, then make its way throughout the rest of Europe afterwards. A 3G model is planned for 2012, which may point to an ultimate release time-frame for the U.S. Check out the video above for a pretty full demonstration of the device. Below is a refresher of its spec list:
    • 10.1-inch
    • 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2
    • Android 3.1 Honeycomb
    • USB 2.0 Connector & USB Host function allowing connection to compatible devices such as a mouse, printer or USB storage.
    • Tilt-Out full-QWERTY chiclet-style keyboard.
    • Video conferencing and photography with a 5-megapixel rear-facing and 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera.
    • “Pearl white” and “metallic brown” colors

    That is a nice looker, and sure to sell well as long as Asus doesn't make any mistakes.

    Maybe this is splitting hairs...but my second impression (after the CES sneak preview) is this is much more an Android netbook with a touchscreen than a tablet: it runs half an inch thick, and almost 2 pounds. I REALLY like the form-factor...but it seems for the next year or two users will be forced to choose between iPad-like sexy, light-and-thin tablets (e.g., Samsung Galaxy) with various carry-along accessories, or the more work-friendly (but heavy/bulky) combo units like the Slider.
