A document that showed up at the FCC lists an Asus family of tablets that carry the possibility to run either Android or Windows, or even a dual-boot option. The information suggests that Asus is getting ready to release this family of tablets with multiple options for the consumer, based on what particular combination they like the best.
There is hardly enough information to go off of to consider this a sure-fire thing, but the FCC filing definitely means its in the works pending they pass through regulations. The question is what possible features and specs could we expect to see in the Asus M80T family and would they be different based on variant? Or is it possible they could all have the same specs but just different OS options? One things is for certain so far, and that’s the fact that you’ll have the option to choose a tablet that runs either OS or both OS’s. As the filing document shows, it also looks like there are variants of each model that could indicate different storage options. A dual booting tablet is a nice idea, but the cost could ultimately determine whether or not it would be worth it to potentially replace whatever devices you already own. And are we looking at Full windows 8.1 or the slimmer less powerful Windows RT? Perhaps the Windows only version will be Windows 8.1 and the dual-boot option will run Windows RT. These things are yet to be determined.
What we do know besides different tablet options, is that the tablets will all support wifi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0. So as it stands, you can choose from the M80T which runs windows only, the M81T which runs Android only, or the M82T which can run both Android and Windows. The closer this gets to a possible release, it’ll be interesting to see what other kinds of specs and features come with each choice. Like camera options, GPUs, and display types. Is a multi platform tablet option something you guys would be interested in?
