As per the details shared by Asus, the VivoTab's 178-degree wide view angle - thanks to IPS technology - will facilitate the delivery of sharp and clear images; with a 5-point multi-touch to operate the Windows 8 OS.
The 9.7mm Asus VivoTab will also be compatible with a physical keyboard attachment - the TranSleeve Keyboard - which be separately priced at an additional £90; and will serve the dual purpose of a protective cover and a stand for the tablet.
