One of our kind readers have just nicely tipped us that the new 10.1-inch Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet Asus Transformer Book T101HA have become available for pre-order for $299:
The Asus Transformer Book T101HA release date is set to within October, which has been in line with the expectations the last two weeks. So this tablet appears to be on track for launch now.
(UPDATE: The Asus Transformer Book T101HA release date became November 17 in the US)
Asus Transformer Book T101HA replaces the Asus Transformer Book T100HA that was released in October 2015, so this marks the first time that this legendary tablet has changed its model number to 101, after having matured well ever since the first generation model was introduced in 2013, and that every other tablet brand copied after that.
Asus Transformer Book T101HA is a Windows 10 tablet with included detachable keyboard, featuring a 10.1-inch screen that has a HD resolution of 1280 x 800. It is powered by a quad-core 1.44 GHz – 1.92 GHz Intel Atom “Cherry Trail” x5-Z8350 processor, has 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and 64GB of storage with microSD card expansion support up to 128GB.
Highlights also includes 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth 4.1, and long battery life at 11 hours.
Asus T101HA is equipped with 1.5 Watt stereo speakers, a 2MP front camera, 1x full-size USB port and 1x micro-USB port, as well as a micro-HDMI port and a 3.5 mm audio combo jack.
The weight of the tablet is 580 grams, while the thickness is 9 mm. The keyboard has a 1.5 mm keyboard travel with 62 gram force, palm rejection, and Windows gesture support.
And being a new Windows 10 tablet, it has support for Windows 10 features like Cortana, so you can work hands free with it too. As a proper 2-in-1, it can be set up in tent mode, which is useful both around the house or when you are traveling, as this feature eliminates the need for an additional tablet stand or cover.
