The ASUS Vivo Tab and Vivo Tab RT tablets already in the manufacturer’s line-up are being joined today by a new slate, the VivoTab Smart Tablet, running Windows 8 and powered by Intel’s AtomZ2760 dual-core processor. Despite a rather lightweight form factor, at 9.7mm thickness and 580gr weight, the battery on the VivoTab Smart Tablet is rated for 9.5 hours of endurance.
There’s a 10.1-inch LED-backlit IPS screen with HD resolution of 1366 x 768 supporting five-point multi-touch for Windows 8′s fingertip control. There’s a TranSleeve Keyboard that will be available as an accessory that can be used as a cover, a keyboard, and a kickstand. The eight-megapixel rear camera provides imaging capabilities while the two-megapixel front-facer can double as a webcam for video calls. ASUS also packed its SonicMaster audio technology inside as well as NFC.
There is currently no information on exact availability dates and pricing.
