We’ve already reviewed the ASUS VivoTab RT here and found it to be quite a decent tablet, with the only shortcomings being rather on the Windows RT side than the one of the OS. Now we find out that the slate is coming to AT&T stores and on the AT&T website starting November 16, meaning this Friday.
The product is priced at $499, but that requires a 2 year contract and a data plan. AT&T claims that the price tag is part of a special holiday promotion, so it won’t last a long while. They also have a special deal that shaves $100 off the price of the VivoTab RT if you buy a Windows Phone device and sign a 2 year plan for it. The ASUS VivoTab RT, also known as the ASUS Tablet 600 packs a 10.1 inch IPS display with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and under the hood it has a quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor.
Think of this product as some sort of Surface RT alternative, if you want. It also has 2 GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera that’s actually pretty good and can even do 1200p video capture. There’s also an optional keyboard dock for the device, that brings an extra two USB ports and extended battery life.
