    will this allow us to connect our current Eee Pad Transformers into the slider keyboard?

      nope. the sliding keyboard is built into the tablet itself.. It is not detachable… I still say Transformer is still the best…

    Throw a dual-core OMAP or Exynos along with stock Android 3.2 in there and you have me sold.
