Asus VivoTab 8 coming next month
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.
