Asus Unveils Vivo Windows 8 Tablets with Both Intel and ARM Designs
Both models are also following the Surface’s lead by including detachable QWERTY keyboards. You’ll be able to tap and swipe the Super IPS+ displays when you’re on the go and attach the keyboard when you need to type. Interestingly, the keyboard includes a second battery to boost the device’s lifespan during your workday.
The Tab’s specifications aren’t too shabby. The tablet will run Windows 8 on a next gen Intel Atom CPU and 2GB of system memory. The tablet will have a 64GB eMMC (embedded multimedia card) for storage and support NFC (Near Field Communication) technologies.
The Asus Vivo Tab RT has a 10.1-inch display, but the same 1366x768 resolution as its Intel-based sibling. The cameras are the same and, like the Tab, the Tab RT’s display has Super IPS+ technology. The RT version also has support for NFC.
Tegra 3 quad-core SoC and 12-core NVIDIA GPU. It has 2GB of RAM, like the Intel model, but half as much storage with a 32GB eMMC card. And, like the Intel version of the Tab, the Tab RT will have a keyboard that includes a battery for extended usage. Asus hasn’t yet announced prices for either model.
