Acer and ECS aren’t the only companies working on Android tablet with Intel Bay Trail processors. Asus is preparing to launch a new 10 inch Transformer Pad tablet with a detachable keyboard dock, Android software, and an Intel Atom Z3745 Bay Trail processor.
It’s called the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C, and we first got a glimpse of the tablet in March, thanks to the Red Dot 21 design awards competition. Now European retail site Digitec has posted detailed specs for the upcoming tablet.
While the tablet features one of Intel’s newest Bay Trail chips, the rest of the specs make it pretty clear that this is a mid-range tablet rather than a high-end device. That seems to be in keeping with Intel’s strategy of making its new low-power tablet chips competitive with the ARM-based processors currently used in most Android phones and tablets.
Here’s what to expect from the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C:
- 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display
- Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core, 64-bit, x86 processor
- Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
- 1GB RAM
- 16GB storage
- microSDHC card slot for up to 64GB of removeable storage
- 16GB of Asus WebStorage
- 802.11b/g/n WiFi
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 1 USB 2.0 port
- 5060mAh battery
The tablet measures 10.1″ x 7″ x 0.4″ and weighs 1.2 pounds while the mobile keyboard dock measures 10.1″ 7″ 0.8″ and also weighs 1.2 pounds. Put them together and you’ve basically got a portable Android notebook that measures 1.2 inches thick and weighs 2.4 pounds.
