The VivoRT was announced by Asus in last August and comes with a 10.1-inch Super IPS display, quad-core Tegra 3 processor, the Windows RT OS (the version of Windows 8 for ARM devices), 4G LTE connectivity and 32GB of internal storage.

Samsung also took the wraps off its 11.6-inch Ativ Smart PC tablet in August, with the model having a dual-core 1.5GHz Clover Trail processor (meaning it runs the Intel version of Windows 8), 64GB of internal storage and coming with a detachable keyboard dock.

The VivoTab RT comes pre-loaded with a preview version of Office Home and Student 2013, while the Ativ Smart PC includes a trial of Office 2013.

Price details have not yet been announced, although previous reports claim Windows RT tablets will sell for $400-500, with Windows 8 models selling for around $800. Asus, meanwhile, plans to apparently sell its Vivo Tab RT tablet for $599, with the Intel-powered Vivo Tab going for $799.
