The Asus Transformer Book T100TA is an inexpensive 10 inch Windows tablet with an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor and a detachable keyboard which lets you use it like a laptop. It has long battery life, decent performance, and it’s probably one of my favorite devices of all the products I’ve reviewed in 2013.
Now it looks like the tablet might have a Android-powered cousin.
Asus has been offering 10 inch Android tablets with detachable keyboards for years as part of its Transformer Pad lineup. There’s nothing new there. But a new product that showed up at the WiFi Alliance site suggests that the company could be working on a device that’s more like the Transformer Book T100TA than it is like a Transformer Pad.
It’s a new device with the model number T100TC, and it’s currently running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. That’s about all we know about the tablet at this point, other than the fact that it supports 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, WiFi-Direct, and Miracast wireless display technology.
The model number seems to indicate it’ll share some DNA with the latest 10 inch Windows tablet — but it’s not clear if that means it’ll have the same 10 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, Intel Atom Z3740 processor and 2GB of RAM.
