Gigabyte has used CES 2013 in Las Vegas to launch its S1185 and S1082 Windows 8 tablets.

The S1185 is designed to be an all-rounder, according to the company, and will have an 11.6in, 1,920 x 1,080 LED touchscreen, making it relatively big.

It isn’t a Windows RT device: processing power will come from an unspecified ultra-low voltage Intel Core CPU, backed by up to 8GB of RAM. Interestingly, Gigabyte’s specification sheet mentions a solitary RAM slot, implying that the RAM modules could be user-accessible.

Storage in the S1185 will take the form of an SSD with a capacity of up to 256GB, and users will get a relatively full range of ports: a trio of USB ports, plus both VGA and HDMI ports, as well as a microSD card reader and a SIM card slot for the optional 3G module.

Users will also get a rear-mounted 5-megapixel camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-mounted unit, as well as a relatively hefty weight of around 1kg - almost twice as much as Android tablets with similar sized screens.

Gigabyte also announced the S1082. Also a Windows 8 device, Gigabyte says it will run a 1.1GHz Celeron processor and support up to 8GB of RAM. Oddly for a dedicated tablet, Gigabyte will offer 320GB or 500GB mechanical hard disks as options, although the added storage comes at the cost of adding 60g to the 790g weight of the SSD version.

Like the S1185 the S1082 comes with a number of physical ports, including a pair of USB ports, a VGA output, and gigabit Ethernet.

Price and availability have yet to be announced.
