Gigabyte has revealed a pair of new Windows 8 tablets, the 11-inch S1185 complete with a Full HD IPS display, and its smaller sibling, the 10-inch S1082. The larger of the two, the Gigabyte S1185, packs an Intel Core ULV processor, up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, up to 256GB of mSATA SSD storage, and both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 connectivity, though it’s the 1920 x 1080 IPS display that will probably be most appealing.

Up front is a 1.3-megapixel camera, with a 5-megapixel camera on the back. Gigabyte will also offer a keyboard dock for easier text input.
