If you happen to own a Gigabyte S1080 or S1081 tablet, then you might be interested to know that the Taiwan-based PC hardware manufacturer has just introduced a new multimedia docking station, dubbed D1080 which is compatible with the two slates. The device is part of Gigabyte’s Booktop Series and will reportedly become available next week, priced at approximately $169.
According to the maker, the D1080 turns the tablets into “fantastic entertainment centers” through its four built-in speakers (2 x dual channel and 2 x 40mm woofer). Furthermore, it comes with an integrated DVD optical drive and weighs about 740grams.
Connectivity features of Gigabyte’s latest Booktop multimedia docking station include three USB 2.0 ports, D-Sub, RJ45 accompanied by an HDMI (available only with the S1081tablet) interface for watching Full HD content on an external HD monitor or an HDTV, input jacks for headphones/mic and an extended battery connection port.
Just to jog your memory, the S1081, which Notebookcheck told you about back in January, is a Windows 7-running tablet aimed at business/professional users. The device ships with a 10.1-inch touchscreen display, an optical trackpad for enhanced “precision”, 500GB of storage, one USB 3.0 port, a Bluetooth 4.0 adapter and an integrated 1.3MP front-facing web camera for video conferencing.
