Asus Tablet 810 breaks cover: 11.6-inch Windows 8 tablet on Intel Atom
Taipei’s Computex expo now brings us the Asus Tablet 810 - a Windows 8 tablet looking like the Asus Transformer series, but with a 11.6-inch screen and an Intel Atom processor under the hood. The Atom chip is basically the biggest difference between the newly announced Asus Tablet 810, and Tablet 600 which features ARM silicon.
And for those of you waiting for those Windows 8 tablets, they’re finally here, so get ready to break the piggy bank. Windows 8 with an unspecified Intel Medfield chip sounds like a great combination, and the 2GB of RAM included make the deal sweeter. There’s also an 8-megapixel rear camera, all fitting in a very thin, 0.34-inch (8.7mm) body.
The display on the Asus Tablet 810 is an 11.6-inch Super IPS+ one with a resolution of 1366x768 pixels. The tablet comes with a dock with a hidden hinge design, a feature that hides the actual hinge when the dock is open. A Wacom dual-digitizer allows you to paint on the glass with both the pen and your fingers.
