    Pretty sure you mean 64GB eMMC for the Vivo Tab. :)

    S-IPS+ and digitizer is nice, a bit of a shame the resolution is a bit low these days though. On the one hand it's just a tradeoff in aspect ratio versus 1280x800 and has the digitizer, on the other hand it's not high resolution. Better than 1024x758 anyway.

    Hard to tell if it's for production, performance, or cost reasons, especially for Windows RT tablets. Like Anand and Brian said on the 2nd AnandTech podcast, it's likely all of the manufacturers were targeting 768p this year and were caught off guard with the iPad 3. Microsoft's desire to have a minimum level of performance has probably prevented OEMs from sticking in high resolution panels until SoCs can comfortably cope with a 1080p and above resolution.

    The good thing for game developers is we will have uniformity in performance for each generation of Windows RT tablets it looks like. Should make testing a LOT easier.

    For the x86 tablet it could just be optimizing for desktop apps since windows DPI scaling has always been flaky and running a non-native DPI hurts sharpness everywhere. Reply

    Very nice.
    Although I was thinking Asus was going all out with 1080p IPS displays starting from their Zenbook prime line.

    Guess this will be a lot cheaper.

    #Correction "64MB eMMC" Should be 64GB.

    I don't care so much about the resolution as long as these products are not more expensive then the iPad, have decent battery life, and perform well. Reply

    Have these been leaked anywhere yet? Reply

    Still not sold on this form factor, even tho I already own an ASUS Transformer + dock and I'm generally happy with it. I guess it comes down to personal preference, but people who need to get serious work done will still need a regular 13"+ laptop, making a hybrid tablet kinda redundant (and a smaller 7"-8.9" tablet more appealing as a companion to the laptop). I think I'm leaning into that camp, tho I might wait until next year to see what the next gen Atom does for price/performance of Win 8 hybrids. Reply

    How about a 12" with a real i5 and Intel HD4000? Reply
