Description

The Asus VivoTab RT carries over the famed Transformer line of Asus Android tablets concept, having its own keyboard/battery dock, and it sports the same 10.1" screen size. The slate, however, is running Windows RT, which is Windows 8 for ARM processor-based tablets, so it is powered by a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. Other niceties include the generous 2GB of RAM, full USB 2.0 port, and an IPS display with the standard for this screen size 1366x768 pixels of resolution. There is an 8MP camera with LED flash on the back for the shutterbug in you, and 32GB of internal storage to store those pics and videos you take.

DisplayPopup

  • Physical size:
    • 10.1 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1366 x 768 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 155 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

    Positioning - This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. There are three main types: GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS. GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
