ASUS is prepping to launch its most affordable Windows tablet ever, the VivoTab 8 model, that’s coming in October. The price tag is $199 and the device doesn’t look bad at all, as shown below.


This 8 inch Windows slate is basically the same with the VivoTab Note 8, that launched earlier this year. However, it lacks the active digitizer, stylus and its hefty $330 price. The newcomer was shown at IFA 2014 in Berlin earlier this month and now it’s ready for store time. After paying $199 for it, you get an 8 inch 1280 x 800 pixel display with wide view angles, an Intel Atom Z3745 Bay Trail quad core processor, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage.


There’s a 15.2 Wh battery on board, offering up to 8 hours of functioning time, as well as GPS and WiFi 802.11n. We’ve got 2 megapixel cameras at the back and front and a microSD card slot included, too. It supports up to 64 GB in removable storage. The product seems solid and it’s taken for a hands on spin below:
