Asus Eee Pad Slider review
An Android tablet with a built-in, slide out keyboard - the best of both worlds or a muddled compromise that pleases no-one? David Ludlow finds out in our review.
When closed, the Eee Pad Slider looks like almost any other Android tablet.
Asus has installed the same screen on the Slider as on the Transformer, and it's a brilliant choice. The IPS panel used has excellent viewing angles (incredibly important for a device you'll move around in your hands), bright whites, deep blacks and rich vibrant colours. It's every bit the equal of the iPad2's screen, with the added advantage that it has a higher 1,280x800 resolution, making web browsing a more pleasant experience.
We found the 5.1-megapixel camera a little disappointing. It struggled to focus in dimly-lit rooms, often leading to out-of-focus shots. Images were very noisy and lacked detail. Switching to 720p video mode, wasn't much better - the footage suffered from high noise and poor detail. Potentially more useful is the front-facing 1.2-megapixel camera that you can use for video calls.
