The ASUS Vivotab Note 8 is coming. Spotted in a number of places around the net, including the ASUS website, it’s pretty much confirmed. Mobilegeeks have chased down the specifications of this Windows 8.1 Baytrail tablet that will start at $299. The Wacom digitizer stands out.

With price, weight and specifications the same as most of the 8-inch tablets one wonders why ASUS are coming so late to the market but the Wacom digitizer will be a big attraction for many. Apart from that it’s down to quality, availability, accessories and offers.
Based on the content that ASUS have prepared, one can expect the ASUS Vivotab Note 8 very soon.
