The Taiwanese company has unveiled bold new range of smartphones, tablets and phablets as well in the CES 2014 event.
In order to push a little confusion around mobile devices, Asus has unveiled a "Note" tablet, which is reminiscent of the Note tablets range and Samsung phablet. Unveiling the VivoTab Note 8, Asus just simply created doubt in the names of products for consumers.
The tablet comes with Windows 8.1, and as the trademark on its line of Samsung Note, it also comes with a Wacom pen. It has built-in Windows 8 which is as much as a curse than a blessing, but we can be happy to see the Wacom technology coupled with the operating system, thus allowing a more precise stylus interaction we are used to on a desktop associated with a Wacom tablet.
With a thickness of 10.95 mm, it weighs 376 grams tablet only. Inside the VivoTab Note 8 there is an IPS LCD 8-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, powered by an Intel Atom Z3740 Bay Trail processor, a 5 megapixel rear camera and a HD webcam on the front, 2GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of internal storage to store documents or files. It is important to note that a micro SD port can increase the ability of the tablet. The Wacom screen offers about 1000 levels of pressure sensitivity, which is comparable to the products of Samsung Note.
The tablet will be available for a price of around 349 dollars. The 32GB version will be offered at $299.
