With October 26th and the official Windows 8 launch just around the corner, ASUS and the FCC are getting the ball rolling on prospective tablets.
Based on a recent filing with the Federal Communications Commision, the Taiwanese company is readying a TF600T tablet that will likely be running Windows 8 based on the device's backside logo. The filing doesn't reveal much outside of a 10.1" screen, Bluetooth, WLAN, NFC and the TF moniker which is usually reserved for ASUS's Transformer line of devices.
Although the FCC documents are less than revealing, ASUS did show off a Windows 8-powered "Tablet 600" back at Computex, and it could indeed be the tablet in question. The 600 featured the same 10.1" size, a Super-IPS+ display, 2GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor but we failed to hear any other news till now. And while the similarities between the two devices are numerous, we can't know for certain until ASUS makes an official announcement.
