New Asus Transformer tablets using double RAM of Android versions

Asus is bringing out two versions of the Transformer tablet running Windows 8. The Tablet 600 will be an ARM-based Windows 8 RT device, while the Tablet 810 integrates an Intel processor to power a full version of Windows 8. Both tablets will have a RAM boost compared to their Android-based counterparts, but will retain the mobile dock that converts them into small notebooks.

The Tablet 810 will use an unspecified Intel Medfield processor with 2GB of RAM, along with a Super IPS+ 11.6-inch display at 1366x768 resolution. An eight-megapixel rear-facing camera with auto-focus and LED flash is paired with a front-facing two-megapixel camera. NFC is included, along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and other standard sensors. A Wacom dual digitizer also makes an appearance for both finger and pen-based control.

The Tablet 600 forgoes the Intel processor in favor of a quad-core Tegra 3 chip, while a smaller 10.1-inch Super IPS+ screen lacks the 810's Wacom dual digitizer.

Neither tablet has been given an expected price or release date by Asus, but both are expected to arrive shortly after the formal Windows 8 debut. The accessory dock, provided with both models, adds a full keyboard, trackpad, USB ports and a second battery. [via Engadget]
