An unannounced Asus tablet showed up at the FCC today. It’s called the Asus Transfomer Pad TF500T, which means it will probably look a lot like the other Asus Transformer Pad tablets.

The Transformer name means that Asus will offer the tablet as a standalone device, but you’ll also be able to pick up an optional keyboard docking station that lets you use the device like a laptop. But that’s about all we know about the TF500T model at this point.

The new tablet will feature 802.11b/g/n WiFi, HDMI output, and a mic and headphone jack, but the FCC documents don’t really spill any other details.

So we don’t know if this tablet will have a 1920 x 1200 pixel screen like the Transformer Pad Infinity, or a Tegra 3 quad-core processor like the last few Transformer Pad tablets. It’s not even clear if this device will run Android. It could be a code-name for one of the company’s upcoming Windows 8 or Windows RT tablets.

What we do know is that Asus Transformer Pad keyboard docks don’t just add a keyboard and touchpad. They also add USB ports and an extra battery, letting you double the battery life of the tablet.

  1. Hmmm MSQTF500T… I wonder if the “MS” in the model number could mean Microsoft, as in Windows 8.

  2. The 15V seems to point to 10 inch, but, I have a 19v 7″ tablet. So, given the success of the Nexus 7, and the fact you can’t buy one from a local store, why not fill in the weak spots of the Nexus7 and add SD, HDMI, Rear Camera and market for the Holidays at $279 maybe a 32GB for $299. Jelly Bean of course. But does the MS in the FCC provide another clue. I thought they already cleared a 600 and 810 for RT and Win 8? Now we do know that Asus has announced a battery keyboard for the Nexus 7 for $129. So no reason it can’t be a 7″, Why come out with a new 10″ model just ad JB. Asus is fast with OS and firmware updates. NO need to put out new model of the same O same O just to ad Jelly Bean.

    1. Unless it’s using something besides the Tegra3 or perhaps it’s a carrier version…
