Asus VivoTab, Acer Iconia Tab W511 hit the FCC
Meanwhile the Asus VivoTab is a tablet with an 11.6 inch display and a digital pen.
Asus actually offers three different tablets in its VivoTab lineup. The VivoTab RT is a 10 inch Windows RT tablet, the VivoTab Smart is a $499 Windows 8 model, and then there’s the Asus VivoTab TF810 — which I believe is what this FCC listing shows.
That model features an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, an Intel Atom Z2760 Clover Trail processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 64GB solid state disk.
One thing that sets this tablet apart from some other Windows 8 models is the Wacom active digitizer which lets you write or draw on the screen using a pressure-sensitive digital pen.
The Asus tablet isn’t unique here though… Samsung and Lenovo also offer models with digital pens, but I like the feel of the Asus pen itself better than some of the others.
Unfortunately that pen and 64GB SSD come at a steep price: The VivoTab has a retail price of $799. And that doesn’t include the optional keyboard dock which helps extend battery life. The dock costs an extra $200.
Acer Iconia Tab W510 and W511
The Iconia Tab W510 is a tablet with a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, an Intel Atom Z2760 Clover Trail processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
It supports WiFi, HDMI, and USB connections, has a microSD card slot for extra storage, and docking connectors for an optional keyboard dock.
Acer’s Iconia Tab W511 variant adds an HSPA+ module for wireless broadband.
The WiFi-only model sells for $499. I haven’t seen any pricing information for the 3G-capable model yet.
