PRESS RELEASE

With an 11.6" multi-touch HD display and Intel® AtomTM dual-core processor, VivoTabTM delivers the perfect combination of performance and portability 

London, United Kingdom (October 23rd, 2012) - ASUS, a global leader in the new digital era, today announces VivoTabTM, a thin and light tablet with Windows 8. The VivoTabTM has an 11.6" multi-touch HD display, Wacom® digitizer stylus and Intel® AtomTM dual-core processor for a perfect combination of performance and energy efficiency. Its optional Mobile Dock offers unprecedented productivity too, thanks to its full keyboard and a built-in battery that gives up to 19 hours' mobile use.

Enhanced performance, incredible energy efficiency

ASUS VivoTabTM has 1.8GHz Intel® AtomTM Z2760 dual-core processor with enhanced performance and incredible energy efficiency. Windows 8 runs both Windows Store apps and Desktop apps too, giving a wide choice of software for every need. VivoTabTM's 11.6" multi-touch display has a pin-sharp 1366 x 768 HD resolution with vibrant colors, wide viewing angles and superior outdoor visibility, thanks to the amazing brightness of its Super IPS+ technology. ASUS TruVivid technology enhances image clarity still further by reducing the display thickness, while scratch-resistant Corning® Fit glass with an anti-fingerprint coating keeps the screen crystal-clear.

Flexible control for intuitive use

Flexibility is key with ASUS VivoTabTM, whatever the task in hand. Multi-touch gives full fingertip control with Windows 8 apps, while the Wacom® digitizer stylus offers extreme precision with Windows 8 Desktop apps. When connected to its new Mobile Dock design with streamlined ‘hidden hinge' design, VivoTabTM is instantly transformed into a notebook, complete with keyboard, large multi-touch touchpad and two USB 2.0 ports for unprecedented productivity. Better still, the Mobile Dock extends VivoTabTM's 10.5 hour battery life by up to nine hours, for an unbelievable 19 hours' mobile use.

Powerful, practical and extremely portable

ASUS VivoTabTM is powerful and practical, but it's also supremely portable. Its sleek metallic design is a mere 8.7mm thin and 675g light, and innovative Nano Molding technology ensures a tactile finish that's as sturdy as it is stylish. Quad speakers with ASUS SonicMaster technology means VivoTabTM sounds as good as it looks too, while the 8-megapixel camera with auto-focus five-element lens and large f/2.2 aperture delivers best-in-class image capture.
