Asus confirms Honeycomb tablets, smartphone

By Hayley Tsukayama

After tons of teasing, Asus has confirmed that two of its tablets will be running Android's Honeycomb.

As PC Mag reported from a press conference Tuesday, the Taiwan-based company showed off four devices: the Eee Pad Transformer, the Eee Pad Slider, the Eee Slate and the Eee Pad MeMO.

The Transformer and Slider are Android tablets. The Transformer is a 10.1-inch tablet with a dock that can connect to a keyboard to change it into a laptop-like device. The Slider, also 10.1 inches, has a slide-out keyboard to do the same.

The MeMO is 7 inches and will also run Android Honeycomb. It has dual cameras, an optional Bluetooth MeMic phone extender, and a stylus and pressure-sensitive screen, combining the functionality of a smartphone and a tablet.

The Slate is a 12.1-inch Windows-based tablet with an Intel i5 processor.
