Since its launch, Windows 8 has offered a completely new mobile computing experience to the tablet community. ASUS VivoTab™ Smart, a forerunner in its category thanks to its lightweight, ultra-slim profile, is the ideal work or play tablet for those constantly on-the-go.

The 10.1-inch ASUS VivoTab™ Smart weighs in at just 580g, is a shade under 1cm thick, and comes in Ceramic White, Diamond Blue, or Poppy Red. “We gave it a sleek, metallic design with ergonomic, rounded edges. Nano molding technology gives it a tactile finish that makes it comfortable to hold,” said a VivoTab designer.

ASUS VivoTab™ Smart is powered by a 1.8GHz Intel® Atom™ Z2760 processor and has a battery life of up to 9.5 hours for all-day use. It has a bright 10-point touch, 1366 × 768 resolution display with IPS technology to deliver stunning images and wide viewing angles of up to 178 degrees. ASUS VivoTab™ Smart also features an LED flash-equipped 8 megapixel rear-facing camera along with 2 megapixel front camera for video conferencing. And being on Windows 8, ASUS VivoTab™ Smart opens you up to an enormous world of possibilities thanks to the thousands of apps available at the Windows Store; it even supports Windows desktop applications.

As far as expansions go, there’s an optional TranSleeve Keyboard that is both a tablet protector and wireless keyboard in one. Made up of two parts, the TranSleeve Keyboard is a combination of the TranSleeve Vivo and the TransBoard. The former is an intricate origami-inspired cover which can be folded to prop up the ASUS VivoTab™ Smart at angles ideal for typing or watching videos; the latter is a 200g, 5mm-thin Bluetooth keyboard that magnetically attaches to the TranSleeve Vivo.

“We adopted a modular design for the VivoTab Smart and its accessories. Magnets are used to combine the tablet, the TranSleeve Vivo, and the keyboard together. This gives users the flexibility to select which accessory to bring out with them,” added the product design lead. With that kind of attention to detail, it looks like they’ve thought of everything.
