Highlights of the ASUS VivoTab RT

asus_P_500As the world of tablets continues to grow, Microsoft desperately tries to grab at some of the market shares. With the newly developed Windows 8 platform, manufacturers are now starting to put the operating system to use in some of the most amazing pieces of 21st century technology. Among those creating these masterpieces of hardware is Asus. The VivoTab RT is specifically designed for the Windows RT environment and is loaded with jaw-dropping technology.
1. The Display – The Asus VivoTab RT utilizes the standard 10.1-inch display to produce the 1366×768 resolution. This allows the VivoTab to really get into detailed graphics and defined video playback. The Super IPS+ with multi-touch support provides smooth movements across the screen for a variety of tasks. Covered by Corning’s Fit Glass, this tablet is resilient against scratches that could happen.

2. Processing Power – As many manufacturers agree, Asus finds the logic in using the Tegra 3 1.3ghz quad-core CPU provided by nVidia. It is backed by 2GB of memory and operates with smooth fluidity. Using the enhance resource managements of the Windows operating system, the VivoTab can operate a great deal of tasks while having the graphic capabilities for detailed gaming in the RT environment.

3. Storage Capacities – The Asus VivoTab RT comes in two sizes for storage. A 32GB and a 64GB eMMC flash versions. As Windows tablets in the past have reached ridiculously high prices to purchase, reducing the size of the drive has helped keep this work of art affordable and competitive with Apple and Google-based tablets. With the addition of the microSDXC port, expansion for the device can reach as high as a theoretical 2TB of space.

4. Docking Station – One of the more appealing attractions to all of Asus’ tablets has been the addition of the docking station. Not only does the dock provide a keyboard and mouse-like input device, but it also increases the battery life of the entire unit with its own battery. Because of this additional power supply, the Asus VivoTab RT can reach use times of up to 16 continuous hours. The power influx aside, the docking station also has capabilities to support USB 2.0 peripherals such as flash drives, mice, and other devices.

5. Networking – As it seems to be a standard on tablets, this unit is equipped with wireless N capabilities. This allows you to connect to any wireless network supporting 802.11b/g/n protocols. Bluetooth 4.0 is readily available for networking as well as connecting devices such as mice, keyboards, headsets, speakers, and more.

6. Photogenic – As opposed to competing tablets, the Asus VivoTab RT utilizes an 8MP rear facing camera and a 2MP front camera. This provides greater clarity when taking photographs or HD video with this tablet. Video conferencing or chat is produced with superb detail.

Although Windows 8 for the tablet environment has seen a bit of headway, it’s hard to tell whether this development was too late. As Apple and Android essentially own the mobile market, others will have their work cut out for them if they want to stay competitive. However, Microsoft has something that many others don’t. Seniority. Much of the world is operated on Microsoft platforms and having a tablet to take your work with you could be what the consumers need.
