Gigabyte S1081 tablet and T1006M convertible notebook pack Cedar Trail

Gigabyte has revealed a new tablet, the S1081, and a convertible notebook, the T1006M, at CES 2012, each running Intel's new Cedar Trail Atom CPUs. The Gigabyte S1081 has a 10.1-inch capacitive multitouch display, 500GB hard-drive (or a smaller-capacity, but bump-proof SSD) and USB 3.0, and can be paired with a Multimedia Docking Station that adds a DVD drive and 2.1 speaker system.

Other connectivity on the slate includes WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI and VGA, and Gigabyte has designed a matching USB keyboard and carry-case. An optical trackpad can be found in the bezel, along with a 1.3-megapixel webcam. The dock also has a number of extra ports.

As for the Gigabyte T1006M, it's a return to the convertible netbook days with a 10.1-inch capacitive multitouch display running at 1366 x 768. Connectivity includes USB 3.0, just as with the slate, and there's integrated 3.5G WWAN. Gigabyte is making some boasts about the lengthy battery life from the 6-cell battery, though there's no actual numbers to be found.

No word on pricing or availability at this stage.
