ASUS Reveal First Windows 8 ARM Based Tablet

There has been a barrage of new Windows 8 Tablets, Ultrabooks and Hybrids flooding out in the last few days as manufacturers try to build up some enthusiasm for Windows 8 at Computex. Toshiba released a variety of concepts for Windows 8 based tablets and hybrids earlier on today and we’ve seen countless Ultrabooks being announced by all manufacturers.

Today we have also seen ASUS reveal their first Windows 8 ARM based tablet. Technically this will be Windows RT as it will be running on Nvidia’s Tegra 3 powered processor. The ASUS Tablet 600 is more of a hybrid tablet as it features a removable keyboard.

The detachable keyboard is nothing new from ASUS and was made popular by its Transformer Android series. Under the hood this tablet is packing an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, an eight-megapixel camera, 2GB RAM, 32GB of Storage and a nice 10.1-inch 1366×768 Super IPS+ panel.

This is the first Consumer Windows RT Tablet that we have seen, and it does look pretty cool. Check out the hands on videos below for more.

We can expect to see plenty more Windows RT and Windows 8 tablets being unveiled over the next few days at Computex. Manufacturers will be keen to get their devices out into the media as they start to grapple with each other to win over consumers once Windows 8 is finally launched to the public.

One things for certain, consumers won’t be stuck for choice when they go shopping for a Windows 8 device once it’s released.
