ASUS renames Tablet 810 and 600 to Vivo Tab and Vivo Tab RT


We’ve seen ASUS’ Windows 8 tablet offerings before back in June during COMPUTEX, and it seems that the company has decided a name change was in order, at least for two of their tablets. The ASUS Tablet 810 and 600 are now known as the Vivo Tab and Vivo Tab RT. The Vivo Tab will come will be powered by Windows 8 (naturally) and will have an Intel Atom processor and has 2GB RAM with 64GB eMMC (embedded multimedia card) user storage. Its 11.6-inch IPS display with 1,366 x 768 resolution has 10-point multitouch capability, and will be supplemented with a Wacom digitizer for additional input. There will be two cameras embedded in the tablet – a front facing 2-megapixel one for video calls and whatnot, and a larger, 8-megapixel camera on the back with an LED flash. Despite all of that, ASUS promises that the Vivo Tab will only weigh in at 675g, and will only be 7mm thick.

The Vivo Tab RT meanwhile will run on an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, and will have 2GB RAM and 32GB eMMC user storage. This ARM-powered tablet boasts a smaller, 10.1-inch IPS display with 1,366 x 768 resolution display, and has the same camera sensors found on its bigger brother. Both slates will come with their own keyboard dock as is the custom nowadays for ASUS’ tablets, unfortunately no pricing (local or otherwise) has been set for both devices.
