ASUS VivoTab RT tablet – Oct. 26th

 

Asus hosted an NYC press event announcing the dockable VivoTab RT, which will be available on October 26th, starting at $599 for the 32GB model, keyboard included. Alternatively, you can buy the 64GB tablet and docking station for $699.   Additionally, an LTE version is coming to AT&T. Finally, ASUS says it will also sell the tablet and dock individually, but no word on final pricing for those items.

The VivoTab RT is an Android-based Transformer tablets, except it runs Windows RT instead.  Like the Infinity and other recent ASUS tablets, it has a 600-nit Super IPS+ display, offering 178 viewing angles and Gorilla Glass protection. Other specs include a quad-core Tegra 3 chip (the new T30, to be exact), 2GB of RAM, NFC and an 8-megapixel rear camera with an auto-focusing f/2.2 lens. Then there’s that keyboard dock, which has a USB 2.0 port and built-in battery rated for seven hours. (The tablet itself is said to last up to nine hours.) Finally, as a Windows RT device, it comes loaded with all of the same stock applications you’ll find in full Windows 8 (Mail, IE 10, etc.), along with Office 2013 Home & Student. The main difference: you won’t be able to install legacy Windows programs.

The VivoTab RT arrives the same day as the Surface for Windows RT.
