First Look: Asus Vivo Tab RT gracefully integrates the tablet and keyboard together

1:35 /

Equipped with Windows RT, a 1.3 gigahertz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU, and a keyboard dock, the Asus Vivo Tab RT is a 10.1-inch tablet mobile office on the go.

Hello everybody, it??s Lynn La from CNET, here with Asus Vivo Tab RT. This wi-fi only tablet has a 10.1-inch IPS plus touchscreen with a 1366 x 7068 pixel resolution. Powering the device is a 1.3 gigahertz quad-core and video Tegra 3 CPU and a 25-watt hour battery. On the back, there is an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash that??s capable of capturing 1080p video and in the front is a 2-megapixel camera. The tablet also comes bundled with a keyboard docking station. Altogether, the Vivo Tab and keyboard has these 2 USB ports, the one is through an adaptor, a micro HDMI port and a micro SD card slot. Two gigs of RAM and Bluetooth 3.0 are also included. In addition, the tablet runs on the Windows RTOS, but you can access the desktop region of Windows as well. There is a high level of care when it comes to this operating system and we found several of its features to be unintuitive. Like this odd double swipe action that you to do for recent apps. However once you get the hang of it, there are lots of things to like as well like split screen access to your apps and this Charm Bar that let??s you quickly bring up search, sharing, and settings?? features. The tablet will be available starting October 26 with the docking station. The 32-gig version will be offered for $599 and the 64-gig model will cost $699. This did tell us that AT&T is planning on releasing an LTE version of this tablet sometime in the future. Again, I??m Lynn and this has been the Asus Vivo Tab RT.
