ASUS Vivo Tab Smart and TransSleeve in Videos

Posted on 09 January 2013 by

There’s been a rush of news on the ASUS Vivo Tab Smart this week. It’s the 10” low-cost Windows 8 tablet on Intel Clovertrail. It might be new to the tech-journalists at CES but it’s been out for a while already so I’m going  to point you to a couple of videos from Mobilegeeks who have already unboxed it…

ASUS-ViVoTab-Smart-9

It’s on pre-order in the USA for $499 and it’s available in Europe for 499 Euros. An LTE version is available there for 599. At 580gm it’s pretty lightweight and you’ll notice that there isn’t a docking keyboard with this one. ASUS have chosen to offer a Bluetooth keyboard. The TranSleeve which you can see in the second video, covers the screen and is foldable to make a stand. It looks a little awkward.

Thanks Mobilegeeks.

    Anyone considering the VivoTab Smart must think about this: Apparently it uses the only microUSB port for charging. So, if you want to use that port for something else — like a pocket hard drive — while on AC, you can’t. This is a huge disappointment to me. At least Acer gave the W510 it’s own AC port.

    *ITS own AC port. I hate it when I typo like that.

    it’s a pity it doesn’t come with a keyboard dock. A 10″ in with 3G/4G AND a keyboard dock would be perfect. Ayone know of any other transformer style tablets that will be launced the coming month or so?

    We are tracking all the win 8 touch devices but for separation I broke out a new database at win8touch.carrypad.com There are 11 clovertrail tablets on the books.

    It is now also featured beautifully on this assus site: http://eee.asus.com/en/vivotab-smart/features/
    (it’s a Windows 8, not the pro flavor though).
    The tablet is now also available and in stock at CompSource.com and ValleySeek.com as of January 10, for around $500.
    For better pricing of $499 including shipping and no State Tax.. just google for Asus VivoTab Smart.
