ASUS Tablet 810 Announced At Computex 2012, Features Windows 8 And Intel Medfield CPU

It looks like ASUS are betting all their money on Microsoft’s Windows 8. After ASUS was the first company to unveil a quad-core Android-powered tablet, the Taiwan-based company presented a bunch of Windows slates at Computex 2012 event.

Yesterday we talked about ASUS Transformer Book, a Windows 8 tablet that can be easily transformed into a netbook and ASUS Tablet 600, the first commercial Windows 8 tablet underpinned by a chipset manufactured on ARM architecture. Today we are talking about a new Windows 8 tablet, created by the Taiwanese company and underpinned by a Intel Atom CPU.

Asus Tablet 810 is like ASUS Transformer Book’s little brother: smaller display, less powerful chipset and considerably less RAM.

The freshly introduced ASUS Windows 8 tablet sports a 11.6-inch display with 1,366 x 768 pixels resolution based on Super IPS+ technology, next generation Intel Atom chipset, dubbed Medfield and 2 GB of RAM. Tablet 810 has 64 GB of eMMC internal storage.

In terms of connectivity, ASUS Tablet 810 comes with WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.10 and NFC support. Since the slate comes with Windows 8 out of the box, once you power it up you will be welcomed by Microsoft’s brand new Metro UI which looks more alive than ever.

Tablet 810 also has an 8 megapixel camera mounted on the back with autofocus and LED flash, while the front facing 2 megapixel camera is ideal for video calls. The Taiwan-based computer manufacturer managed to fit all these treats into a 8.7 mm thin case.

The new gadget also comes with a detachable dock-in station that includes a full QWETY. It also packs a Wacom digitizer stylus that will help you draw or perform various tasks on the 11.6-inch display.

ASUS haven’t announced the price of their Tablet 810, but we expect it to be cheaper than the ASUS Transformer Book, but more expensive than its Windows RT cousin, ASUS Tablet 600. Availability? I don’t know for sure, but my guess is that the Taiwanese company will start shipping it as soon as Microsoft officially launches its new operating system.
