Asus Android tablets delayed to Q3, no Honeycomb

Asus has delivered a couple of bits of bad news about its upcoming range of tablets.

Asus announced three Android Tablets at CES, the Transformer and Slider (10 inch models) along with the Memo (a 7 inch display). Both the 10 inch variants will come with a keyboard, with the Transformer featuring a removable one, and the Slider, unsurprisingly, a sliding keyboard.

At CES, Asus said these would be ready for the second quarter of 2011. However, it appears that this is incorrect, and according to the Inquirer, the slates have slipped to the third quarter.

They were supposed to arrive with Honeycomb – the flavour of Android designed with tablets in mind – but Asus has also said they will now be launched with Gingerbread. And that’s despite the fact that the company now has more time before launch what with the delay.

Apparently the details revealed at CES were “a mistake”, a company representative told the Inquirer.
