Asus VivoTab Note 8 tablet, Transformer Duet dual OS convertible show up at CES

The Asus VivoTab Note 8 Windows-based tablet has been released at the CES along with the Transformer Duet TD300 dual OS convertible that can act as both a tablet as well as a laptop. Their availability details have been kept under wraps and nothing has been mentioned about their prices either. They should hit store shelves pretty soon.

The VivoTab Note 8 is based on the Windows 8.1 OS and as the name suggests, it offers a multi-touch real estate of 8 inches. The IPS display is said to be capable of rendering HD visuals in 1280 X 800p resolution. Also, the screen is compatible with the pen stylus and thus the gadget’s package also contains a professional Wacom digitizer. This should facilitate note-taking, drawing and navigating between apps in the slate.
