ASUS launches VivoTab RT


ASUS has launched the VivoTab RT, the first Windows ASUS VivoTab RT tablet, which features a mobile dock that allows the user to switch between tablet and notebook use. The ASUS VivoTab RT uses the powerful NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor for a smooth and responsive use with the Windows RT OS.

Only 8.3 mm thick with a 10.1″ Corning Fit glass screen and weighing in at 525g, the ASUS VivoTab RT packs quite a punch spec-wise despite its thin design. It comes with 32 GB of onboard storage as well, along with 2 GB of DDR3L (low voltage) RAM. There’s an 8 megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 2 megapixel front camera with an LED indicator, and it is capable of shooting 1080p HD video. 3G and 4G models are available as well. ASUS VivoTab RT has a ‘hidden hinge’ design for a sleek, streamlined look and fully adjustable screen angle when used with the optional mobile dock.

There are the usual connectivity options, such as the 2-in-1 headphone/mic connector, micro HDMI, Bluetooth, WiFi, and a microSD card reader for even more hard drive space. The battery life also varies whether you’re using it as a tablet or a notebook—you get up to 9 hours of use as a tablet, and 16 hours as a notebook, so this is ideal if you need to use it for long periods of time.

Along with Windows RT, the ASUS VivoTab RT comes preloaded with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 RT preview, so you can also increase your productivity on the go. The ASUS VivoTab RT is available now for Php 37,995.
