The first device out the door is a the 7-inch EEE Pad MeMo. Android powers the devices and with a Qualcomm Snapdragon is at the core that can even playback 1080p content. Asus is using a 7-inch IPS screen up front and is stylus compatible.
Asus is calling the EP121 “the most powerful tablet” and the specs of the Windows 7 machine seem to support that claim: Core i5 470UM, 64GB SSD, 4GB of RAM along with a Wacom Digitizer-compatible 1280×800 IPS screen. There’s 802.11n, HDMI, and a 2.0MP cam.
The Eee Pad Transformer does the convertible netbook dance. Inside is a Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core CPU — and it’s thinner than the iPad when the keyboard is detached. There’s dual cams up front with a 10.1-inch IPS 1280×800 screen. But all that fun is enhanced with its 16 hour battery life.
Eee Pad Slider is, well, an Eee Pad with a sliding keyboard. Those Asus folks have this naming thing down. There’s a 10.1-inch IPS multi-touch screen on the front with front and back webcams. The whole thing weighs in at 1.98 lbs and is only .66 inches think. Nvidia Tegra 2 is at the core and runs an Asus-skinned Android release.
The whole family will slowly roll out in 2011 with the Eee EP121 Slate hitting this month for $999 – $1099 followed by the Transformer in April for $399 – $699. The Slider will drop in May for $499 – $799 in May and the Mimo in June for $499 – $699.
