Asus Vivo Tab and Vivo Tab RT Windows 8 tablets showcased at IFA, full specs announced
Asus just re-announced its first two Windows 8 tablets, which now come rebranded as the Vivo Tab and Vivo Tab RT.
The Asus Vivo Tab will sport an Intel Atom processor and ‘full’ Windows 8, alongside an 11.6-inch 1366×768 IPS touchscreen, 2 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, 10-point multitouch, an 8 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash, a 2 MP front-facing camera, and NFC support. The Vivo Tab will be 8.7 mm thin and will weigh 675 g.
The Vivo Tab RT will be even thinner and lighter, at 8.3 mm and 520 g respectively. It will come with Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, a 10.1-inch 1366×768 touchscreen, and the same cameras and NFC support like its aforementioned sibling. The Vivo Tab RT will obviously run Windows RT, the OS version tailored toward the ARM architecture.
Both tablets will have an optional keyboard dock, continuing Asus’ tradition started with the original Transformer Android tablet. Thus you’ll be able to turn them into makeshift laptops if you so wish.
The most important details – pricing and availability info – have been left out of Asus’ announcement this time around too. Hopefully by the time the Taiwanese company announces these devices for the third time, it will be able to tell us how much they’ll cost and when they’ll be out.
