Apparently ASUS is working on a new 8 inch tablet that will sport Windows 8 for the operating system. There were several image leaks of new tablet but we want to try and bring you the specs of the new ASUS VivoTab Note 8 M80TA tablet to go along with the photos that you may have already seen.
Mobile Geeks actually discovered the ASUS VivoTab Note 8 after they did some digging around when the heard rumors swirling about the new VivoTab Note 8 M80TA. What they found was a tablet dubbed the VivoTab that is 8 inch and comes with Windows 8.1. This would be the very first 8 inch Windows tablet from ASUS and some of the features will be an active digitizer and a price tag of just around $299 which would put it at less of a sticker shock than the ASUS Transformer Book T100.
From want we have seen the specs for the new ASUS VivoTab Note 8 will be up to 64GB of internal storage space, 2GB of RAM, support for pen input, Office 2013 Home and Student all running on the intel Atom Z3740 Bay Trail dual core processor at 1.8GHz. The 8 inch slate from ASUS will come with the Wacom Stylus, will feature 1280 x 800 screen resolution.
It is supposed to come in both the 32GB and 64GB no mention of anything smaller with microSD card. The VivoTab Note 8 from ASUS will come with Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-FI but no word on whether it will come with 3G/4G LTE. There will be both front-facing and rear-facing cameras. The front camera for Skype and other video needs will be 1.2mega pixels and the rear camera will be 5mega pixels.
When the new ASUS VivoTab Note 8 M80TA will be one to the lightest slates on the market and will weigh in at just 0.8lbs. The version we are expected to get here in the US is expected to be priced lower than in the European market. While we will be able to enjoy the sub $300 price tag it will be selling for $411 USD overseas. Many suspect that the new VivoTab will be much like the Dell Venue Pro 8. However if you are looking for a pure Android tablet check out the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition which costs about $349. We will have to wait and see just what ASUS has in store for us. Until then here’s to more rumors and leaks!
