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.

It’s a bit heavier than an Ultrabook, it may come with a hard drive or SSD and DVD drive in the keyboard dock.

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.

“Some of the worlds best developers work at Linaro optimizing the future of Linux on ARM. In this 4-hour video series several of them describe software solutions for the upcoming ARM big.LITTLE architecture (ARM Cortex-A15 and ARM Cortex-A7), demonstrate how Linaro Android 4.0.4 runs twice as fast as stock Android 4.0.4 on the TI OMAP4430 Pandaboard, talk about the future of Android, unify the ARM bootloader, combine multiple ARM SoCs into one Linux Kernel for ARM. Canonical works to support ARM Servers, Mark Shuttleworth talks about the opportunity that ARM constitutes for Ubuntu on Laptops and Servers. The CTO of Linaro talks about the next billions of ARM Powered devices that they are working to optimize Linux for.”

Thanks for your help in getting more people to watch my videos!

In a few hours, I start video-blogging 50+ videos here at Computex until June 10th. ARM’s press conference at Computex starts just a few hours from now.
