One of the first companies to officially unveil new Android tablets at CES 2011 is Asus, which has presented a trio of slates, all part of the Eee Pad series.
All tablets will run Android 3.0 Honeycomb, coming with two cameras (5MP on the back, and 1.2MP on the front – for video-calling, of course).
The smallest tablet is the Asus Eee Pad MeMo, which features a 7 inch IPS multi-touch display with 1024 x 600 pixels, a capacitive stylus, micro HDMI, and a Qualcomm processor.
The Asus Eee Pad MeMo will be available starting June this year for $499.
Next on the list is the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. It’s called like that because it comes with an optional QWERTY keyboard, which not only helps you type better, but also extends battery life up to 16 hours.
The Transformer is based on Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chipset and features a 10 inch capacitive touch-screen display (1280 x 800 pixels), and mini-HDMI port. It should be available in April for prices starting at $400 (depending on the internal memory).
Last but not least, we have the Asus Eee Pad Slider. It’s also based on Tegra 2, and it’s screen has 10 inches and 1280 x 800 pixels. The main difference between it and the Transformer is that it has a sliding QWERTY keyboard that’s always attached.
The Eee Pad Slider should hit the market in May. Its retail price will start at $500.
