Asus has whipped out yet another variation on the tablet/netbook hybrid. The Asus Eee Pad Slider has a full slide out QWERTY keyboard, that makes it look a bit like a giant HTC Desire Z. Not only that, but it will be packing the latest, as yet unreleased version of Android, Honeycomb.

The Asus Eee Pad Slider has two cameras: a 5MP rear facing camera and a 1.2MP front facing camera for video calls. It’s packing a USB input, and card reader too. As you can see, it’s pretty portable too: the Asus Eee Pad Slider weighs in at just 886g, and is 16.7mm thick.

The screen is a 10.1 inch multi touch display. Under the hood there’s an NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset and Asus promises the model runs Android Honeycomb. Whether that’s Android 2.4 or Android 3.0, we’re not sure yet, but you can bet we’re going to ask. This is the first time we’ve heard about a Honeycomb tablet at a press conference this CES, but we’re sure it won’t be the last.

Price wise it’s currently tacked at $499-$799 (£320-£500) and is due out in April.
