ASUS introduces the New and Powerful Business-Class Eee Slate B121
New tablet combines innovation and design excellence, making it perfect for business, corporate, governmental and organizational users
Singapore (8 November, 2011) – After impressing the industry and consumers worldwide with a wide selection of Eee Pads and Eee Slates, ASUS continues to expand its tablet device range with the new business-focused ASUS Eee Slate B121, the most powerful tablet PC available to commercial users and a perfect tool for business. It offers great convenience and features that are ideal for small businesses, point of sale usage, finance and banking, education, healthcare, and more. The Eee Slate B121 features an Intel® Core™ i5 processor and genuine Windows® 7 Professional, and can run the same software as any notebook or desktop PC. It also ships with the built-in security of Trusted Platform Module (TPM) technology, and all purchases come with unlimited ASUS WebStorage access for one year, free of charge.
The full power of an Intel® Core™ i5 processor enables responsive multitasking, a rare treat for tablet users. With genuine Windows® 7 Professional running full versions of PC software and an SSD for storage instead of a conventional mechanical hard drive, performance is enhanced and boot up is accelerated, so users save time and energy.
Professionals can rest assured that their valuable data is protected with the Eee Slate B121’s Trusted Platform Module, or TPM, which safeguards confidential data by hardware-encrypting files. This helps defend against attacks by hackers looking to capture passwords and encryption keys to sensitive data. TPM is a widely-recognized industry standard that has achieved a solid reputation in the field of information security and confidentiality.
Tough touch screen with Corning® Gorilla® Glass
Visually stunning and incredibly tough, the Eee Slate B121’s display provides exceptional damage resistance, easy maintenance and optimized touch response. The panel is reinforced using an ion exchange process that forms a compression layer on the surface of the glass. This armor prevents damage and flaws, while remaining compliant with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances directive (RoHS).
The Eee Slate B121 offers users various input options, including touch, stylus, or an external Bluetooth keyboard. With its responsive multi-touch screen, users can collaborate on projects and create and share presentations. The Wacom digitizer stylus enables precise control and pressure recognition, ideal for professionals in the design field.
Great image quality and added features
The 12.1” 1280 x 800 LED-backlit WXGA multi-touch display delivers improved outdoor readability and a 178ﾟ degree viewing angle. This helps share content and presentations with colleagues, regardless of how users rotate or hold the device. Output to a large external display via mini HDMI is effortless, and the B121 supports Adobe® Flash® 10.3, which allows professionals and students to view a wide selection of online content. Professionals can stay in contact by video conferencing with out of office colleagues or business partners located in other countries using the 2.0 megapixel camera. All Eee Slate B121 purchases come with one year of free access to ASUS WebStorage cloud computing services, taking advantage of the device’s portability.
“Microsoft is delighted to continue working with ASUS to bring innovation to customers around the globe. The new business-class Eee Slate PC delivers performance, security, mobile productivity and the familiarity of Windows that business customers expect”, said Nick Parker, Microsoft Vice President of Worldwide OEM Marketing.
