Take computing on the go into your own hands with the Asus VivoTab Smart Windows 8 tablet. Packing a sleek exterior and an Intel Atom processor, the VivoTab Smart is an elegant solution to taking the full Windows 8 experience on the road.

Key Features:

  • Powered by Intel’s Atom processor and 2GB of RAM, the VivoTab Smart delivers great performance and power efficiency. Ideal for creating documents and browsing the web, the Atom is a processor designed for mobile devices that preserves battery life for longer.

  • With 64GB of built-in storage, you’ll be able to keep your most important files and folders in close reach. A microSDHC card reader means you can up to an extra 32GB worth of storage too.

  • Enjoy clear images thanks to the 10.1” HD display with IPS. A wide viewing angle of 178° makes it easier to share visual content with others. The multi-touch functions make navigating Windows 8 a breeze, too.

  • Dual-speakers with SonicMaster Audio Technology ensure you’ll experience incredible audio thanks to precise processing protocols and codecs.

  • The VivoTab Smart is just 9.7mm in depth and weighs 580g, so it’s never a burden to carry with you. A massive battery life of up to 9.5 hours ensures that this tablet will go longer without needing to plug into a mains supply.

  • A rear-facing 8 megapixel camera with a back-illuminated CMOS sensor, LED flash and auto-focus function ensures the VivoTab can capture great detail, whatever the lighting. This camera features a large f/2.2 aperture to ensure greater clarity, while faster shutter speeds help reduce the risk of camera shake. A 2 megapixel front-facing camera mean you’ll look great in video chats too.

  • Pairing your tablet with other devices has never been so easy, thanks to NFC. Simply tap the two NFC enabled devices together to begin sharing information within seconds. With Bluetooth 4.0 and built-in Wi-Fi too, you’ll never be stuck for options for wireless data transfer, but if you need a wired connection, the VivoTab Smart also comes with a micro USB port for connecting to a computer, and micro HDMI to output your display to an HDTV or monitor.

  • SuperNote and Windows 8 Fresh Paint are amongst the software already installed on the VivoTab Smart. SuperNote is a versatile note taking application designed to allow users to input notes through typing or by scribbling with a stylus or even your finger, or take photo, video, or even audio notes using the built-in cameras and microphones. Fresh Paint is a highly realistic, touch-enabled oil painting app with a variety of canvases and brushes to choose from.


This device can be upgraded to Windows 8.1 for free through the Windows Store.
