Asus, Nvidia Lay Claim to First Windows RT (ARM) Consumer Device

Paul Lilly

There's a whirlwind of products being introduced at the this year's Computex convention, including one that Asus and Nvidia gleefully claim is the world's first Windows RT consumer device. They're talking about the Asus Windows RT Tablet 600, a nifty device built around Nvidia's ARM-based quad-core Tegra 3 platform that, when combined with the optional dock, transforms itself into notebook.

The Tablet 600 boasts a 10.1-inch Super IPS+ panel with a 1366x768 screen resolution. It has 2GB of memory, 32GB of built-in storage, 8MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, Wireless-N and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and other odds and ends.

Capable hardware aside, Asus and Nvidia are promoting Windows RT hard with this thing, and in particular the built-in productivity tools. Microsoft's Office Suite comes pre-installed on Windows RT, giving Tablet 600 owners access to programs like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint at no additional cost.

It's still unclear how much the Tablet 600 will cost or when exactly it will ship, but in the meantime, you can check out the video preview below:
