We finally have the official specs and price of the Asus VivoTab Note 8 after it was unveiled for hands on demonstrations at CES 2014. The device was leaked a little while back but Asus confirmed the Windows tablet by releasing a user manual last week.

As the name of the VivoTab Note suggests, we have an 8 inch device with a 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display. Internally the tablet packs an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor, comes with either 32GB or 64GB of storage and has 2GB of RAM. A 5 megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel front camera are featured, as is a microSD card slot and micro USB port.

The tablet promotes the use of a stylus which has officially been labelled as a Wacom digital pen, supporting over 1000 levels of pressure sensitivity. As you would expect the operating system of choice is Windows 8.1. Whilst we do not have a confirmed launch date, a release after CES is thought to be imminent.
