ASUS Tablet 600 With Windows RT, The First Of Its Kind

Earlier today we showed you the ASUS Transformer Book, a Windows 8 tablet underpinned by Intel’s Ivy Bridge chipsets that the Taiwan-based company unveiled at Computex 2012.

At the same computer expo in Taiwan, ASUS also unveiled world’s first consumer tablet running on Windows 8 RT – Microsoft’s operating system optimized for tablets and computers with chipsets manufactured on ARM architecture. ASUS Tablet 600 is the very first of its kind.

Besides the smooth and intuitive Windows RT Metro user interface, ASUS Tablet 600 comes with technical specifications that make it worthy of the high-end tablet segment.

Besides the dock-in keyboard that extends the battery life of the ASUS Tablet 600, the Windows RT slate packs a 10.1-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels, a powerful quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset and 2 GB of RAM.

As you’ve probably guessed the 10.1-inch Windows RT ASUS tablet sports WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC. It also comes with an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash.

The technical specifications will make many tablet enthusiasts have wet dreams about ASUS Tablet 600, but the price will be the one that will really make them have the slate in their bed on their worktable.

The even though ASUS Tablet 600 and ASUS Transformer TF300 come from the same mother, the two slates will be rivals on the tablet PC market. Therefore ASUS Tablet 600 must come at a competitive price in order to be able to withstand the $500 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Tegra 3 tablet.

Not to mention that it was rumored that Google is also working on a quad-core (reportedly the same Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset) tablet that will come with Android Jelly Bean out of the box and a price tag of only $250.

The Apple iPad? I guess no product will be able to outrun it as the queen of tablets for the next couple of years.
