We first saw them at Computex, and here at IFA ASUS once again introduces its new tablets intended for Windows 8. Formerly known as the ASUS Tablet 810 and 600, these new tablets now feature snazzier names – the ASUS Vivo Tab and the ASUS Vivo Tab RT respectively.

Latin for “To live”, the ASUS Vivo successfully marries the elegance of ASUS tablet designs with the new touch-enabled Windows 8 OS. The Vivo features a high resolution, multi-touch 11.6” Super IPS+ display. ASUS TruVivid technology with Corning® Fit Glass provides delivers improved colour clarity and superior scratch resistance. It is also supported by the highly precise 1024-level Wacom digitizer stylus technology.

As with other ASUS tablets, a detachable QWERTY keyboard dock turns it into an ultraportable clamshell. The keyboard dock also functions as a secondary battery for even longer mains-free use.

The ASUS Vivo Tab

The ASUS Vivo tab features an Intel® Atom™ processor and has 2GB RAM with 64GB eMMC (embedded multimedia card) user storage.

The Vivo Tab’s 11.6”, 1366 x 768 resolution display uses Super IPS+ technology to deliver superior visual clarity both indoors and out, and its 10-point multi-touch is complemented by Wacom digitizer stylus technology for high-precision stylus input and a more natural writing experience.

With a profile of just 8.7mm and weighing in at 675g, the Vivo Tab still delivers superlative sound quality by way of the ASUS-exclusive SonicMaster audio technology. The Vivo Tab’s 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash captures stunning high-quality images; while a 2-megapixel front-facing camera is ideal for video chats. The Vivo Tab also features a built-in NFC sensor, enabling the device to easily sync with other NFC-enabled devices. In addition, the keyboard dock provides the added convenience of a track pad, two USB ports and second battery for extended use away from the mains.

The ASUS Vivo Tab RT

The ASUS Vivo Tab RT has a 8.3mm thin profile and tips the scales at just 520g. It features the NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor and 12-core GPU for outstanding mobile graphics performance, along with 2GB RAM and 32GB eMMC user storage. Unlike its bigger sibling, it is supplied with Windows RT.

The Vivo Tab RT has the same innovative 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 has a 10.1”, 1366 x 768 resolution Super IPS+ display; while ASUS SonicMaster technology ensures top-quality audio. It also has the same front and rear cameras as the Vivo Tab too, along with the built-in NFC sensor.

Look out for a more comprehensive review from us soon.
