ASUS has unveiled a new tablet designed specifically for the enterprise market called the Eee Slate B121. It may not be that next-gen ASUS Eee Pad Transformer with the quad-core Kal-El processor running Android that we’re all excited about, but it brings what ASUS has done well with its Android tablets to the Windows 7 Professional platform and adds those extra enterprise security features.
The B121 features a 12.1-inch 1280×800 multitouch display covered by Gorilla Glass with 178 degree wide viewing angles and works with a Wacom Digitizer stylus. Inside it runs on Intel’s Core i5-479UM processor with 4GB of RAM along and a 64GB SSD. It has a front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video conferencing, two full USB 2.0 ports, a mini-HDMI port, and a built-in memory card reader. It’s also bundled with a Bluetooth keyboard.
And catering to enterprise, the tablet features multiple levels of security, including a Computrace LoJack support that helps locate the device if its stolen and also can remotely lock and delete data on the device. It also features a trusted platform module that work with Windows BitLocker for better data encryption of data to protect against software attacks and physical theft.
For all this, however, the B121 is priced at $1499. So you had better have some good business use for it. Availability for the device has not been announced, but you can check out more information from ASUS.
