The Consumer Electronics Show is the first of many gadget conventions that showcase the latest in consumer electronics. The show is timed at the start of the year where consumer electronics makers are going to show off the track of technology for the rest of the year. Among the great devices that have been getting rave reviews at Las Vegas are the slew of Windows 8 tablets that were introduced. Here are the three most notable Windows 8 tablets that surely you want to get for work and play.
ASUS Vivo Tab 8
The ASUS Vivo Tab 8 is perhaps the worst-kept secret during the CES. Finally the device that has been roaming the grapevine has become official. This 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet is a direct response to Dell’s Venue 8 Pro. The tablet has the same 1280×800 IPS display which is pretty decent at this display size. The IPS display provides great viewing angles to boot. This new tablet boasts of having a Wacom digitizer stylus which makes it within the level of the Samsung Note series. The stylus is known to be able to handle about a thousand pressure levels. The nice thing about this tablet is that the 32 GB model is priced at $299 and the 64 GB model tips the scales at around $349.
ASUS Transformer Duet
Do you want to have a powerful Windows machine and an equally capable Android tablet in one? Well look no further as ASUS introduces its newest offering the ASUS Transformer Duet. Thanks to a patented process a user can switch from Windows 8 to Android 4.2 in just—wait for it—four seconds. The laptop configuration has a Core i5 or i7 inside with plenty of RAM. The tablet on the other hand has an Bay Trail Atom Intel Processor running under the hood. No word on the price for this one of a kind laptop-tablet combo that gets the best of both worlds.
Lenovo Think Pad 8
The 8-incher that has the best display is the iPad Mini with Retina Display. But Lenovo is making a run at the title using one weapon—affordability. Lenovo’s Think Pad 8 has a 1920×1080 resolution which is almost at par with the new iPad mini. The new Think Pad has great color reproduction and viewing angles thanks to the IPS display. This new tablet lacks stylus support unlike the predecessor. This baby has an 8-megapixel camera with flash which is something that is lacking among its competitors.
Microsoft has been pushing for the use of the full version of Windows 8 to tablets and most original device manufacturers are responding. It would not be far until Windows will already match or surpass iOS in terms of mobile computing. That is if Apple has nothing to say about that.
