ASUS unveils new Innovative Transformer Products at Computex 2012
New range looks to help consumers realize the ASUS vision of ubiquitous cloud computing
ASUS, a global leader in the new digital era, is thrilled to announce its new range of Transformer products at Computex 2012. In a bid to realize the vision of the ubiquitous cloud computing era, ASUS’ continuous search for incredible innovation results in a myriad of solutions when it comes to cloud devices and open cloud services. These latest Transformer products come with no limitations, and readily answer users’ calls for varied screen sizes, intuitive user experiences, and uncompromised performance.
ASUS shakes up the tablet market with the latest iteration of its Transformation concept as it presents the 11.6” ASUS Tablet 810 (Windows 8) and the 10.1” ASUS Tablet 600 (Windows RT). Both tablets have been designed to provide the best Windows tablet experience.
Additional Transformations further push the boundaries of what is possible — coming in the form of the ASUS Transformer Book and the ASUS Transformer AiO. Together with the ASUS Windows Tablets, these devices are designed to surpass hardware limitations and users’ imaginations, providing innovative features that address and enhance the user experience in the cloud computing age.
ASUS Tablet 810 (Windows 8) — the incredible Windows 8 tablet with mobile dock
The ASUS Tablet 810 (Windows 8) features the Next Generation Intel® Atom™ processor and has 2GB RAM with a 64GB eMMC (embedded multimedia card) for user storage. An incredible Windows 8
experience makes it perfect for professional and personal use.
Key to the 810, however, is the supplied mobile dock that instantly transforms the tablet into a compact clamshell ultraportable, complete with full QWERTY keyboard, track pad, two USB ports and second battery for extended use away from a power socket.
The 11.6” display with 1366 x 768 resolution uses Super IPS+ technology to deliver superior visual clarity both indoors and out, and its 10-point multi-touch is complemented by Wacom digitizer stylus support for a more natural writing experience.
Despite its compact dimensions and ultra-thin 8.7mm profile, the 810 still delivers superlative sound quality, thanks to the same SonicMaster technology used on ASUS’ award-winning notebooks. High-quality photographs can also be captured with the 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash, along with a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chats. It also features a built-in NFC sensor, enabling the device to easily sync with other NFC-enabled devices.
ASUS Tablet 600 (Windows RT) — the incredible Windows RT tablet with mobile dock
The ASUS Tablet 600 (Windows RT) features the NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor and 12-core GPU for outstanding mobile graphics performance; it also has 2GB RAM and a 32GB eMMC for user storage. Operating on Windows RT, tablet users with entertainment in mind will find a perfect partner in the 600.
The 600 also has the same innovative Transformer design as the 810 and is supplied with its own mobile dock that provides a QWERTY keyboard, track pad, USB port and second battery.
Windows 8 apps, games and movies look incredible on the 600’s 10.1” display with 1366 x 768 resolution and Super IPS+ technology, while ASUS SonicMaster technology ensures top-quality audio. The 600 has the same high-quality front and rear cameras as the 810 too, making it an excellent all-round multimedia performer. It also features a built-in NFC sensor, enabling the device to easily sync with other NFC-enabled devices.
ASUS Transformer Book — the world’s first convertible Ultrabook™
The ASUS Transformer Book is the world’s first convertible ultrabook — allowing users to instantly switch between a ultrabook and a tablet by simply detaching the screen. It is aimed at users who prefer the portability of a multi-touch tablet computer for leisure, but still want access to a more traditional Windows-based ultrabook for productivity use.
The Transformer Book delivers a performance that rivals that of other ultrabooks in the market, and boasts the latest Intel® Core™ i7 processor* with discrete graphics, along with SSD and HDD storage, 4GB DDR3 dual channel RAM, and USB 3.0. It also features ASUS SonicMaster technology developed by the ASUS Golden Ear team to deliver crystal-clear sound with deep rich bass through its integrated speakers. The Transformer Book also sports dual cameras, with a HD front-facing camera and a 5MP rear-facing camera making it a tool for both photo-taking and video chats.
This lightweight ultraportable is available with an 11.6”, 13” or 14” Full HD IPS display with multi-touch capabilities. This can be detached from the full-size QWERTY keyboard* to create a highly portable tablet to give the best of both mobile worlds.
