1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    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

    Really nice video (was that Romanian???). One thing I realized is that the built-in keyboard lacks a touchpad--which the current transformer keyboard has. Makes the USB wireless mouse a required extra. But I really like the form-factor (come on, it's basically an Android netbook with a touchscreen!). Like a giant Droid. :)
