IFA 2012 ExpoLast month at Computex, ASUS unveiled two new Windows 8/RT tablets, Tablet 810 and Tablet 600. Today Asus is ready to reintroduce the pair of devices as the ASUS Vivo Tab (810) and the Vivo Tab RT (600).

oth will run the soon-to-be-released Windows 8, and will offer an optional keyboard dock. Unfortunately ASUS has yet to confirm a price or date, though it is likely that the devices can be expected shortly after Windows 8/RT is released, which is due to hit shelves October 26.

Vivo Tab

The ASUS Vivo Tab is going to be the larger of the duo, as it will weigh in at 1.49 pounds with a width of 8.7mm. For all its weight it will offer an 11.6-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution, which will make it one of the larger displays on the tablet market. As a staple of the new Vivo line, the display will use Super IPS+ technology that allows for high precision stylus input and greater integration with Windows 8.

Vivo Tab RT

The Asus Vivo Tab RT, while slightly smaller at 10.1-inches, is going to be no slouch, as it will run on NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core chip, with 2GB Ram and 32GB eMMC. The 10.1-inch display will offer the same 1366 x 768 resolution as its counterpart. The smaller display will make the Vivo Tab RT considerably lighter, weighting in at 1.15 pounds with a width of 8.3mm.

Additionally both devices will be accompanied by the optional QWERTY keyboard dock. While the dock will serve all the functions of a typical keyboard, it will also double as an additional battery source for both devices.
