Asus P1801 Tablet Outed, Could Run Windows 8 and Android

The Federal Communication Commission has indicated that PC manufacturer Asus could be developing an 18-inch tablet scheduled for a 2013 launch.

The P1801-T model number outed by the FCC may offer a hint to the tablet's screen size. Asus' Eee Slate EP121 was released as a 12-inch tablet, while the firm's Nexus 7 tablet is a 7-inch device built for Google.

Engadget suggested that the P1801-T may be the finalized version of Asus' Transformer AiO, which was unveiled back at Computex during June, 2012, with the tablet being shielded from the media spotlight ever since.

The Transformer AiO itself is a large tablet developed to run two operating systems -- Android as one, and either Windows RT or Windows 8 as the other.

GLBenchmark also added credence to the listing by revealing technical specifications for a P1801 device. The tablet will apparently run on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, as well as being powered by a Cortex A-9 processor, accompanied by a 1920 x 1032 display.

Asus is also rumored to be working on a tablet named ME172V, which is said to be powered by a 800Mhz CPU and 1 GB of RAM.
