Asus Tablet 600 is a Transformer for Windows 8 fans, packs a quad-core Tegra 3 and 2GB of RAM

Asus Tablet 600 was just announced and handled at the Computex expo in Taiwan, which keeps churning out Win 8 news, like the two Acer slates already showcased this morning.
The Tablet 600 carries over the famed Transformer line of Asus Android tablets concept, having its own keyboard/battery dock, and it sports the same 10.1" screen size.
The slate, however, is running Windows RT, which is Windows 8 for ARM processor-based tablets, so it is powered by a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. Other niceties include the generous 2GB of RAM, full USB 2.0 port, and an IPS display with the standard for this screen size 1366x768 pixels of resolution. There is an 8MP camera with LED flash on the back for the shutterbug in you, and 32GB of internal storage to store those pics and videos you take.
Time and app variety will tell whether Windows RT slates will be successful, but for now they seem like a pretty bold take on tablets, and we are only waiting for the price to be announced by Asus. To cover all bases, Asus also announced the Tablet 810, with the same specs as the 600, but a larger 11.6" IPS panel, and an Intel Medfield processor, which might mean higher price and shorter battery life, but a full-blown Windows 8 with legacy programs compatibility.

I don't want an RT one, but it's good enough. I'm waiting for the x86 ones, Transformer Style. let's see if x86 really does consume more battery.

Battery consumption is the main purpose why ARM is dominating mobile department...I'd like to see one day a x86 windows tablet with decent battery life, but atm seems uthopic. Had a Macbook Pro, have a Zenbook - no way sadly - wifi longevity is a disaster :(

That's great! Probably I'll buy it, but I wish a similar tablet but Exynos processor... And 2 USB slots like the original Transformer dock.

Folks for Windows RT Tablet to survive People must realized they must wait for developers to get to down and write enough apps for windows on ARMS CPU Tablet computers. The Intel CPU controlled Windows 8 tablets come to the Market with thousands and thousands of Windows PC business programs and PC games and PC peripheral devices. that the intel Windows Tablets can use and control. People have been waiting for them a long time. The Ipad has almost a unbeatable lead over Windows tablets
