    Latest Windows 8 tabs to feature dual-purpose design

    ASUS has confirmed two new Windows 8 tablets inthe ASUS Vivo Tab and ASUS Vivo Tab RT.

    Vivo is the latest tablet to feature a dual-purpose design that combines a high-resolution multi-touch Super IPS+ display with a detachable QWERTY keyboard dock. ASUS TruVivid technology with Corning Fit Glass is designed to improve colour clarity and give superior scratch resistance, while the keyboard transforms Vivo into a clamshell ultraportable as well as providing a secondary battery for prolonged mains-free use.

    With an 11.6” screen backed by high-precision Wacom digitiser stylus technology, the Vivo Tab is designed with productivity in mind, while the ultra-light Vivo Tab RT is ideally suited to entertainment on the go.


    The ASUS Vivo Tab features the Next Generation Intel Atom processor and has 2GB RAM with 64GB eMMC (embedded multimedia card) user storage.
    Key to the Vivo Tab’s recipe for Windows 8 is the supplied mobile dock. High-quality photographs can also be captured with the 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash, along with a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chats. The Vivo Tab also features a built-in NFC sensor, enabling the device to easily sync with other NFC-enabled devices.

    The ASUS Vivo Tab RT has a slim and light profile that’s 8.3mm thin and 520g light. It features the NVIDIA Tegra® 3 quad-core processor and 12-core GPU along with 2GB RAM and 32GB eMMC user storage and comes supplied with Windows RT. The Vivo Tab RT also has the same Transformer design as the Vivo Tab and is supplied with its own mobile dock that provides a QWERTY keyboard, track pad, USB port and built-in battery. The Vivo Tab RT’s 10.1” display features a 1366 x 768 resolution and Super IPS+ technology. The Vivo Tab RT has the same front and rear cameras and will also feature a NFC sensor, as per the the Vivo Tab.
