Asus Eee Slider Video Hands On: User Interface, Design, and 1080p Video Playback

The Asus Eee Pad Slider is shaping up to be the most mobile and practical of the company’s CES product announcements. Its familiar-looking 10-inch touchscreen can slide and sit upright, revealing a full QWERTY keypad below.We don’t know its exact weight, but the Slider isn’t heavy. So you can’t get that kind of 10.1-inch mobility and productivity anywhere else just yet.

When it ships in  May, the Slider will run Android 3.0 and cost you $499 to $799. That could include a 16GB or 32GB solid-state drive and either 512MB or 1GB of RAM, depending on your preference. Either way, Asus’s proprietary MyWave interface looks and functions well atop Android 2.2 (3.0 will be ready by ship date). Check out our hands-on photos and a video walk-through with an Asus team member below.
