Asustek sure ain’t no stranger to the tablet game, what with the Eee Pad Transformer and its millions (slight exaggeration) of variants.
As such, another couple of Android tablets from Asus aren’t likely to raise many eyebrows. But who said anything about Android, man? It’s time for Asus Windows 8 slates!
The Asus Tablet 600, firstly, adopts a 10.1in display (1366 x 768), with Super IPS+ tech offering awesome readability indoors and out. We have a quad-core Tegra 3 processor in the engine room, partnered with a 12-core GPU and 2GB of RAM.
It’s Windows 8 RT on OS duties, and there’s 32GB storage to play with.
As for the Asus Tablet 810, it has an 11.6in display (1366 x 768 again), also with Super IPS+, an Intel Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, and 64GB user storage. The Intel-based Asus Tablet 810 rocks Windows 8.
Both the Asus Tablet 600 and Asus Tablet 810 are “supplied” with a mobile dock, transforming the tablets into what Asus calls “compact clamshell ultraportables”, complete with QWERTY keyboards, USB expansion and second batteries.
No word on release date or price for the Asus Tablet 600 or Asus Tablet 810 just yet, but we’ll be keeping a close eye on these bad boys.
