Asus VivoTab Note 8 hits retail after CES 2014 debut

Sometimes in the lead up to the official unveil of a product there are plenty of leaks that tip some of the specs about the device. That was definitely the case with the Asus VivoTab Note 8 tablet last month. The tablet was confirmed by a leaked user manual early in January, only a few days ahead of CES 2014. At CES 2014, the tablet made its official debut.

If you have been following the tablet and are interested in a smaller screen device running Windows, the latest word on the tablet might interest you. The Asus VivoTab Note 8 tablet is now available to purchase at retail. The tablet can be purchased directly from Microsoft online with the 32GB version selling for $329.

If you recall all the news about the tablet that came during CES 2014, that price may sound a bit high. During the CES unveiling of the tablet, the price was tipped at $299. The 64GB version that was tipped during the show hasn’t been seen just yet.

The VivoTab Note 8 runs Windows 8.1 and has a Wacom Digitizer Stylus. The 8-inch screen has a resolution of 1280 x 800 and the tablet runs an Intel Atom Z3740 processor. Asus fits the tablet with 2GB of RAM and it has a 5MP rear camera with a HD resolution front camera.
