If you loved ASUS’ Transformer series of Android tablets with detachable keyboards, then you might be interested to learn that the company has announced the ASUS Windows RT tablet. Assuming the name and the photograph above did not already give it away, this will be ASUS’ Windows 8 tablet and the world’s first Windows RT device and will be powered by none other than NVIDIA’s Tegra-3 quad-core mobile processor, which has also been featured in other high-end ASUS Android tablets as well. The device will sport a 10.1” 1366×768 IPS+ touchscreen display, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a digital compass and NFC. It will also feature a 2MP front-facing camera and a 8MP rear-facing camera with auto-focus and an LED flash. Pricing and availability have yet to be revealed, although if we had to guess, we’d say probably around when Windows 8 has been officially released commercially. Either way we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled so stay tuned for updates and check out NVIDIA’s hands-on for the device.
