ASUS just announced its VivoTab Note 8, a Windows 8.1 tablet equipped with a Wacom digitizer, and priced starting at just under $300.
ASUS VivoTab Note 8 has an 8-inch screen with 1280 x 800 resolution IPS display, having a dual camera with 5MP rear camera, and an HD camera on the front. The digitizer pen has 1,000 pressure sensitivity levels, which gets once writing or drawing on the screen as natural as it can be.
Beneath the 8” display is where lies the Intel Atom Z3740 Bay Trail processor set at 1.86GHz, coupled with 2GB of RAM, powered with a 15.5 Whr battery. It carries Bluetooth 4.0 already, so it helps lessen power consumption, too. It’s also built with Wi-Fi and Miracast for data traffic, and HDTV display mirroring.
VivoTab Note 8 actually looks a bit thick at 10.95mm, weighing about 380g. Though, it has relatively slimmer bezels. The 32GB model is priced at $299, and the 64GB priced at $349. Aside from the expansion microSD slot of up to 64GB, they’re also giving an unlimited ASUS Web Storage for a year. ASUS is bundling Microsoft Office Home and Student with the package as well.
