Eee Pad Slider Appears on Amazon Germany; Launch Nearing?

Now that ASUS has reintroduced the world to the Eee Pad Slider after their Eee Pad Transformer has taken off, it seems we’re ready for a release.

    That is what I want! Or that Awesome Dell 7 inch tablet with a slide out keyboard that was on engadget! Keyboards are not necessary on a tablet, but I want one.

      I think that 7 inch dell is more practical, and possibly more ergonomic, since you don’t have to bend your back/neck just to look at the screen. But since that thing is a prototype, we probably won’t see it in production until 2012.

    Meh, I think a physical KB on a 7″ tablet is unecessary.  I used SwiftKey on my Nook Color and in portrait, it’s super quick, and I can’t imagine holding something heavier.  On a 9-10″ tab, though, I think an optional KB would be great, and having it combined in the Slider vs the Transformer is great!  The leaked prices for the Slider have been higher than the TF though.
