Asus Tablet 600 with Windows 8 RT on ARM Tegra3

Posted by – June 4, 2012

This new Windows 8 RT on ARM device is a bit like the Asus Transformer Prime but Asus does not want to call it a Transformer Book, it’s running Windows on ARM only, no dual-boot with Android for now (my guess is maybe they change their mind by the release of this device in October or whenever Windows 8 is released). This is kind of a prototype, although the hardware is pretty much the same as the Asus Transformer Prime with Tegra3, this one has 2GB of RAM.

Asus Taichi convertible 11.6″ dual-screen Intel Windows 8 Laptop/Tablet

Posted by – June 4, 2012

This is the big announcement from Asus at this Computex. They add a screen, which significantly reduces the battery life (if both screens are in use at the same time). This announcement sounds to me like a usual type of announcement for Asus, last year it was the Asus PadPhone. I think none are going to be popular. The form factors just seem to be wrong, price too high, power consumption too high, usability non-seamless. Intel/Microsoft are just not the right combination for success anymore.

InHand Hydra-T3 Ruggedized 7″ Pixel Qi tablet released

Posted by – March 28, 2012

InHand releases their new Hydra-T3 ruggedized 7″ Pixel Qi tablet. It runs on the Texas Instruments DaVinci DM3730 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 and 800MHz TMS320C64X+™ DSP, up to 1GB DDR2, up to 16GB eMMc Flash, the Pixel Qi LCD screen is the 7″ 1024×600 built using a chemically strengthened resistive touch screen layer (I wonder how readable this resistive Pixel Qi implementation is). Having been tested through the military specs MIL-SPEC, MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461F it can support extreme temperature, fluid contaminates, solar radiation, fungus, immersion, shock and vibration. It uses a 37WHr redundant 3.7V Lithium Polymer battery for up to 10 hours of battery life. It can run Android 2.3, Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows Embedded Compact 6.

This tablet seems to compete with the Orchard Inc Toughlet which is also a ruggedized 7″ Pixel Qi tablet for military and industrial use. The military and the industry must be very eager to use the Pixel Qi screen for tablets outdoor readability, low power consumption as soon as possible.
