Asus launched the VivoTab Note 8 in the US and Europe earlier today, after initially showcasing the device at the CES a few weeks back.
The VivoTab Note 8 comes with an 8-inch 1280 x 800 pixel display with a Wacom digitizer stylus that can register more than 1000 pressure levels. The 1.33GHz Intel Atom CPU heads the processing department, assisted by 2 gigs of RAM and 32GB/64GB of on-board storage. Asus also include an 8GB microSD card in the bundle that plays the role of a Windows recovery partition, in case things go wrong.

While tablets usually aren’t one’s preferred device of choice when we’re talking photography, Asus hopes to change that with the 5 mega-pixel unit on the device coupled with a 1.2 mega-pixel front-facer. Connectivity is taken care of by ports and radio including a headset jack, Bluetooth and WiFi a/b/g/n.
Priced USD 329, the device is among the more expensive Windows tablets. Surprisingly though, the Microsoft Store shows the VivoTab Note 8 to be ‘out of stock’ just hours after initial launch.
Serious competitor of the Kindle Fire HD..
“Priced USD 329, the device is among the more expensive Windows tablets.”
Still the cheapest wacom equipped 8.1 tablet to date.
