This $199 USD Windows slate powered by a Bay Trail processor should hit the market next month packing 2 GB of memory and 32 GB of internal storage.

Asus revealed the VivoTab 8 at the beginning of this month at the IFA 2014 trade show in Berlin. This 8-inch slate is practically a stripped down VivoTab Note 8 - it has no active digitizer, no stylus, and is expected to retail for only $199 USD

Asus VivoTab 8 has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Intel Atom Z3745
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 64 GB
  • Display: 8-inch touchscreen with 1,280X800 pixels and wide viewing angles
  • Cameras: 2 MP front, 2 MP back
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 n, GPS
  • Operating system: Windows 8.1
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.75 pounds; 8.3X4.9X0.35 inches
  • Battery/Autonomy: 15.2 Wh; up to 8 hours of mixed use

More details should become available soon, since Asus has not officially confirmed the US launch of this slate yet. Although the Asus VivoTab 8 is not cheaper than the $99 USD HP Stream 7 Tablet or the Toshiba Encore Mini, it offers more memory and storage than both of them and better viewing angles than the Japanese tablet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
