ASUS Confirms Win8 ARM Tablet, 3G Transformer in March & New 10″ Tablet

2012-Jan-11 | Tags: asustablet

Windows on ARMASUS couldn't wait for CES to talk about what's coming up in their 2012 tablet line up. At a press event in Taipei the ASUS tablet road map was laid out by Vice President and General Manager of the Eee Systems Business Unit, Samson Hu.

We've already heard that there will be a ARM tablet running Windows 8 and speculation has been that it will be the Transformer Prime.  We now have confirmation that ASUS will indeed be launching a ARM tablet running Windows 8 that will arrive by the end of the year. However, with a release date slotted for a possible 11 months away, it doesn't seem likely that they would use a 2011 design even if it just day's away from being 2012.

There is a good news for Transformer Prime fans though, so if you were holding off for the 3G version, you'll be happy to hear that it now has an official March release date.  This new variant of the Transformer Prime will also come equipped with a more powerful GPS module.  This is a welcome news since the Transformer Prime has been receiving some negative reviews around the weak performance of the GPS.
