We’ve just discovered that one of the more unique tablets – the Asus Eee Pad Slider – is coming to the UK in August, and will be dubbed the Asus 3G Transformer.

Asus has just confirmed that the new Eee Pad Slider will go on sale in the UK in August, although they’ve kept quiet on the price, for now. It’s unfortunate but we still cannot say definitively what this particular tablet will go for. Still, we know it’s going to come with 3G connectivity on board, and as such, will likely command a bit of a price premium. Furthermore, there are rumors that it has received a processor speed bump up to 1.2Ghz, but it hasn’t bee confirmed officiallly either.

Still, it’s definitely a unique piece of tablet goodness, and one that we are eager to get our hands on. Obviously many people have already purchased the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, for its awesome keyboard dock addition, and for the fact that it is currently the best priced Android Honeycomb tablet on the market.

The Asus Eee Pad Slider features a 10.1 inch inch touchscreen IPS display, with Gorilla Glass, and also comes with a built in slide out QWERTY Keyboard. It will be released with the latest build of Android Honeycomb – 3.1, and features a dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor.

The battery performance is rumored to be quite good as well, being somewhere in the 9-10 hour range. What say you, Android lover? Does this form factor appeal to you? How do you think it stacks up to the Transformer or the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1?

Stay tuned!
