Asus VivoTab Smart Windows 8 tablet just the start
We are certainly being treated to a high number of new tech products this week especially as the CES 2013 event is ongoing, and doesn’t matter whether you are on the lookout for a new smartphone or new tablet PC we are seeing a whole number of new products being introduced to the market. Today we have news of the Asus VivoTab Smart Windows 8 tablet, which is just the start of a number of new products in the pipeline from the company.
The new tablet from the company that brought us the Nexus 7 features a clever full type cover that provides owners a wireless QWERTY keyboard, and runs the new Windows 8 operating system. The tablet PC is powered by an Intel Atom Z2760 dual core processor that powers a lovely looking 10.1-inch IPS display that has a resolution of 1366 x 768. The IPS technology provides users with 178-degree wide viewing angle along with clear and bright images.
From a distance you could mistake the device for the Microsoft Surface, but the Asus VivoTab Smart has a little more to offer potential purchasers. The company is calling the cover the TranSleeve that can also work as a wireless keyboard, cover, and a stand depending on your mood.
The device has some other nice features up its sleeves as well that include an impressive 8 megapixel rear facing camera, while around the front you are provided with a 2 megapixel shooter. There is also NFC connectivity thrown into the mix as well and considering the specs of the device it is likely to sell like hot cakes once released.
Its 8 megapixel rear camera is also capable of 1080p Full HD video capture from its auto-focus five-element lens, and the device also includes a five point multitouch for excellent fingertip control using Windows 8.
There is also SonicMaster audio technology from the company that provides a promised excellent sound, and Asus are also promising the device will provide 9.5 hours of battery life. At the time of writing there is no information regarding availability and pricing, but hopefully this should become available in the not too distant future.
