The two Windows 8 tablets that Asus showed us during Computex in Taiwan last June were now renamed to Vivo Tab and Vivo Tab RT. The designs remained the same though the specs were bumped up a bit.
The Asus Vivo Tab is the one running Windows 8 Pro and uses an Intel Atom processor. It has a Super IPS+ display with Corning Fit Glass protecting the 11.6″ screen (1366×768 pixel resolution). It also comes with high-precision Wacom digitiser stylus.
The system comes with an Intel Atom, 2GB of RAM and 64GB eMMC (embedded multimedia card) for internal storage. There’s an 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC. The tablet is only 8.7mm thin.
On the other hand, the Asus Vivo Tab RT runs on an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 12-core NVidia GeForce GPU, 2GB RAM and 32GB eMMC internal storage. This ARM-based tablet will run on Windows RT. The Vivo Tab RT is thinner at 8.3mm with just a 10.6-inch display.
Both tablets will be available sometime after the official Windows 8 launch in October. We’ve also learned that the tablets will be priced somewhat similar to the Asus Transformer line — in the range of Php30k or more.
