ASUS Eee Pad Slider Review

ASUS Eee Pad Slider Review

Tablets took ASUS by surprise this year. The company revealed its two models, the Eee Pad Transformer and Eee Pad Slider, back at CES 2011 in January, and went on to see the Transformer become a sell-out success. The Slider SL101, meanwhile, failed to appear on schedule, and it's only now - ten months after we saw it first - that units are finally reaching store shelves. Has time been kind, or is this Android tablet just a netbook with pretensions? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Tablets finally undercutting $500 iPad, but will it matter?

As you already may well know, the iPad is not a tablet PC, it is an iPad. Thus is the brilliance of the brand-masters at Apple and thus is massive success the iPad has seen so far. What we've been seeing over the past few months is a welcome change on the part of many manufacturers and carriers trying to sell their tablet computers in the face of a very much iPad-saturated market: price cuts.

Acer and ASUS opt into Tizen; HTC ponders say sources

Tizen, the platform that gobbled up MeeGo, may only be a few days old but already it's reportedly gaining support from new companies including ASUS and Acer. The firms are each apparently set to add Tizen development to their engineer's workload, DigiTimes' sources claim, with HTC said to be "currently evaluating its decision."

Windows 8 proves there’s more to tablets than iPad

Windows 8 is here, and it's all eyes on Microsoft's tablet strategy as the industry gages whether it's game-on or game-over against Apple's iPad might. You'd be forgiven for your skepticism, mind: Microsoft's previous idea of finger-friendliness was to ratchet up the font size and hope for the best.
