8-inch tablet designed for one-handed use and featuring powerful Intel Atom Z3740 ‘BayTrail’ processor
London, United Kingdom (7th January, 2014) — ASUS today announced the VivoTab Note 8, a Windows 8.1 tablet featuring a professional Wacom® digitizer stylus, making it the best pen-based tablet for productivity or creativity. Designed for professionals and students alike and bundled with Microsoft® Office Home and Student, which includes Microsoft WordTM, Excel TM, PowerPoint TM and OneNoteTM, VivoTab Note 8’s light 380g weight and the ability to use it one-handed make it an ideal mobile productivity tool.
With slim bezels, a high-definition IPS display and an elegant design it deserves pride of place in any business or educational environment.
Powerful Quad-Core Processor
The VivoTab Note 8 is powered by the latest Intel® Atom™ Z3740 processor for a perfect balance between multitasking performance and outstanding energy efficiency. With up to 8 hours battery life, VivoTab Note 8 can last for a working day before it needs to be recharged. And with 2GB of memory, 32GB of solid-state storage plus the ability to use up to 64GB microSD cards, there is all the space you need for your apps and files. Accessing your data on the move is simple, too, thanks to one year’s worth of unlimited ASUS WebStorage.
Precise input with Wacom technology
Designed for one-handed user with ultra-slim bezels, the VivoTab Note 8 is ideal for on-the-go use. Its professional digitizer pen sits neatly in its holder along the bottom edge of the tablet, so it’s always on hand when you need it. Based on premium Wacom technology, the digitizer stylus affords the best possible accuracy, speed, responsiveness and palm rejection. This, combined with over 1,000 levels of pressure sensitivity, provides an extremely natural writing or drawing experience, meaning you really can throw out your sketch pad or notebook: the VivoTab Note 8 is all you need!
Serious About Sound
Developed by the team of experts in the ASUS Golden Ear team, SonicMaster audio technology uses a tailored mix of hardware and software to enhance sound quality to a level far above what you might expect from such a small device. Its rear-facing stereo speakers with large resonance chambers give rich, rounded bass, and sophisticated audio processing tools boost the frequency range to make music, movies and games sound fantastic.

The VivoTab Note 8 will be on shelf in February with an MSRP of £299.99.
