Asus finally launches Eee Pad Slider SL101 locally, retails at Php 26,995


First the good news: Asus has finally launched the Eee Pad Slider SL101 locally, and it seems that the device has not changed at all since we last saw it in their local office back in August. It still has the same processor as the Transformer had, and still sports a fantastically solid sliding keyboard underneath for those times you need a keyboard (but aren’t in the mood to buy/bring a keyboard dock). Some software updates have managed to up the functionality of the device a bit though, like support for external HDDs (for streaming video and the like) to USB devices like wireless keyboards and mice. Now the bad news: the device will hit the streets about a month from now, in November, so you folks will have about a month to save up for the Php 26,995 sticker price for the 16GB version.
