Asus VivoTab TF810C Windows 8 tablet now available for $799 and up
The Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Asus has reportedly started shipping its latest portable device, dubbed VivoTab TF810C. Based on a Windows 8 operating system, the 8.7mm (0.34-inch) thick tablet features SSD storage, a Wacom active digitizer (offers greater accuracy and pressure sensitivity) and up to 19 hours of battery life when used with the optional keyboard dock. According to a report from Liliputing, the new VivoTab model is available from the US computer component e-tailer EXcaliberPC and has a starting price of $799.
The slate PC is apparently powered by a Clover Trail Intel Atom Z2760 system on a chip (supports Hyper-Threading) that incorporates two physical cores running at 1.8GHz and a PowerVR SGX 545-based GPU operating at a frequency of 533MHz. In addition, the TF810C is equipped with an 11.6-inch Super IPS+ (In-Plane Switching technology for improved viewing angles) touchscreen display of 1366-by-768 pixels maximum supported resolution.
The product page further indicates that the new VivoTab tablet houses 2GB of RAM and a 64GB Solid-State Drive (Asus is supposedly giving customers additional 32GB of Webstorage space for three years). The 675g unit packs 4 speakers, an array of sensors and two built-in cameras – a 2MP front-facing web camera for video conferencing and an 8MP rear-facing shooter (AF & flash LED).
Other features reportedly include two USB 2.0 ports (on the keyboard dock), a micro SD/SDXC media card reader slot, a micro HDMI output, Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 radios. The Asus VivoTab TF810C sports a 30Wh Lithium-Polymer battery that has a runtime of 10.5 hours when separated from the dock.
