Back at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014 last month, ASUS unveiled their highly rumored VivoTab Note 8 tablet. During the event, the company did give us a preview of what the tablet will bring to the table, but failed to give us an expected availability date. If you are eagerly waiting for the tablet to hit retail, we’ve some good news for you.
Recently, Microsoft silently updated the online store and lists the 32GB version of the tablet for $329, which is $30 higher than the price we heard it would launch with. As of writing, the product is out of stock, and there are no footprints of the 64GB version of the tablet at the Microsoft Store. But, we’ll keep an eye on things and will update this post if it shows up for sale online.
On a side note, there’s another Windows 8 tablet from Dell that comes under a similar price range and specs. If you have doubts, we did a comparison of both tablets, in terms of hardware and specifications, to help you decide. Do take a look at it.
For $329, you’d get your hands on the following specifications,
- Windows 8.1
- 8-inch HD (1280 x 800) IPS display
- Intel Atom Z3740 processor
- Integrated Professional Wacom Digitizer Stylus with EMR Technology
- 2GB LPDDR3 memory
