ASUS Introduces T100: Bay Trail based 2-in-1 Tabletby Anand Lal Shimpi on September 11, 2013 12:26 PM EST
ASUS CEO Jerry Shen just pre-announced the ASUS T100, a Bay Trail 2-in-1 tablet (dockable) with up to 11 hours of battery life. Think Transformer goes Intel. I believe we just saw the first Bay Trail design win.

Re "first Bay Trail design win" -- didn't Toshiba announced the 8" Encore Win8.1 tablet last week with Bay Trail?
cmikeh2 - Wednesday, September 11, 2013 - linkMy guess is 10 inches. That's where the transformer
cmikeh2 - Wednesday, September 11, 2013 - linkStupid trackpad. That's where the Transformer line has been with the exception of the Core Series thirteen inch version.
bobbozzo - Wednesday, September 11, 2013 - linkHi, it would be informative to state that Bay Trail is a Silvermont Atom CPU.
A5 - Wednesday, September 11, 2013 - linkI think he's assuming that you've read the giant front-page article about Bay Trail.
marc1000 - Wednesday, September 11, 2013 - linkT100 ? No one notice the reference to Terminator movies? It's a nice thing, after the Transformer devices last year. Someone at Asus loves movies!
feliponcho - Wednesday, September 11, 2013 - linkWith all the food, alcohol and escorts they have at IDF it's only logical this kind of short posts. Enjoy IDF Anand.
JNo - Thursday, September 12, 2013 - linkThe word 'dockable' suddenly made this potentially more interesting to me than the Dell Venue or Toshiba Encore (both of which do still look interesting though).
zeo - Saturday, September 14, 2013 - linkYup, it actually comes with the keyboard dock... Though, no secondary battery in the dock but the 31WHr battery in the tablet is pretty large for a 10.1" (Surface RT has a 30WHr and it's a 10.8" for comparison) and they're claiming it will still get about 11 hours and that should be plenty for most people...
Especially, since like many ARM tablets it supports Always Connected Standby and very efficient power sipping to the point you can probably only need to charge it every few days to once a week or so, depending on usage... it won't drain significantly when not being used like traditional x86 devices...
The dock also provides a USB 3.0 port as added bonus...
The Z3740 isn't as powerful as the Z3770 Anandtech benchmarked but it still averages double Clover Trail... PCMag ran a CPU intensive test on it and it finished in about half the time the same test completed on a Clover Trail tablet...
