IFA 2012: Asus renames its Windows tablets the Vivo Tab and Vivo Tab RT

IFA 2012: Asus renames its Windows tablets the Vivo Tab and Vivo Tab RTAsus has a seriously busy tablet lineup, with a seemingly endless range of OS, size and form factor options having emerged over the past year or two, a lot of them with fairly similar names.

Well it seems Asus has heard our pain, as it has just rechristened the Tablet 810 and Tablet 600 Windows 8 slates it introduced at Computex a couple of months ago: they're now called the Vivo Tab and the Vivo Tab RT.

Otherwise, both tablets are unchanged from what we heard back in June: the Vivo Tab (the Tablet 810) is powered by an Intel Atom processor and runs Windows 8. It has an 11.6in Super IPS+ display with a 1366 x 768 resolution, with 2GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

The Vivo Tab RT (the Tablet 600), meanwhile, has a smaller 10.1in Super IPS+ screen running at the same 1366 x 768 resolution, runs Windows RT and features an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. As with its big brother, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage completes an impressive spec.

Both are set to ship with a multifunction dock, which can serve as a keyboard add-on, a long-life battery and a twin-port USB hub.

Sadly, another point unchanged since June is that we still don't know when this Windows-powered pair will be hitting the market.
