Asus gives Windows 8 and RT hybrids the Vivo Tab name

Back in June, Asus showed off its own Windows RT notebook-tablet hybrid product, which it called the Tablet 600. Today, as part of the IFA trade show in Berlin, the company offered up some more information on its two hybrid products, one of which will run on Windows 8 and the other on Windows RT.

Engadget reports that both products will have the new Vivo branding, which Asus says means "to live" in Latin. The company said that both hybrid devices are " ... designed as a constant companion that blends the familiar elegance of Asus tablet design with Microsoft Corporations' new touch-enabled Windows 8 operating system."

Both of the Vivo hybrids will have a detachable keyboard dock, along with a built in NFC sensor. The Windows 8-powered Vivo Tab will have an 11.6 inch screen and an Intel Atom processor inside. Look for the product to also have 2 GB of RAM and 64 GB of SSD storage. It will weight in at just 1.5 pounds (without the keyboard, we are guessing).

The Windows RT version will get the name Vivo Tab RT. It will have a 10.1 inch screen, along with a NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 32 GB SSD. It will weight in at just 1.1 pounds (again, we are thinking that's without the keyboard dock). Asus has yet to reveal a price or a specific launch date for the Vivo Tab or the Vivo Tab RT.

Wasn't the x86 hybrid they were showing off at Computex boasted as having an Ivy Bridge i7 processor, 4GB of RAM and a discrete graphics card? Where's THAT model?

There were these 2 tablets + the Transformer Book (the one you're describing) at Computex. They aren't part of the same line of products (like the Taichi with dual screens), so they're not forgetting it, and we should have more info on it soon (I guess).

Come on, we're talking about Netbooks or something even less powerful than that, so I guess the x86 one shouldn't cost more than 500-600$, considering high quality touch screen + Wacom digitizer that 350$ netbooks don't have.
