Last month it was revealed that Asus was preparing a two-in-one tablet that would be joining the other models in the company’s Transformer Pad line. Details of the device were still few back then with the only sure information is that the device can be used as a tablet or as a notebook when the keyboard dock is attached.
Just recently the detailed specifications of the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C have been revealed by European retail site Digitec. One interesting thing about this device is that it will be using Intel’s latest Bay Trail processor.
- Display: 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display
- Processor: Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core, 64-bit, x86 processor
- Operating System: Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
- RAM: 1GB
- Internal storage: 16GB storage
- Cloud storage: 16GB of Asus WebStorage
- Expandable storage: microSDHC card slot for up to 64GB of removable storage
- Connectivity: 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0
- Port: 1 USB 2.0
- Battery: 5070mAh
Based on its specifications the device can be classified as a mid-range device rather than a high-end one. The processor used is Intel’s latest product specifically designed to be used on tablets. Details of the Intel Atom Z3745 reveal that it has a clock speed of 1.3 GHz, has four cores, and uses a 64-bit architecture. We still don’t have information on how well this processor stands out against its ARM counterparts. The good thing about this though is that it is a 64-bit processor which means that it will be able to support a 64-bit Android operating system when it comes out.
The Asus Transformer Pad TF103C basically targets customers who are looking for a device that has the portability of a tablet yet has the productivity features of a notebook. The device can wither be used as a tablet or as a notebook with the keyboard attached.
In tablet mode a person can use the touch screen to operate the device. This is best suited for viewing multimedia content. The notebook mode is best for working on documents where a person needs a keyboard to type efficiently.
As far as the pricing and the release date of the device is concerned there is still no information available. Asus has not even officially announced the device yet however when the company does we will keep you guys updated.
