Asus announced another Windows 8 tablet during the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 in the form of its VivoTab smart tablet. The 10-inch LED-backlit VivoTab Smart boasts a 1,366x768-pixel IPS display and is powered by Intel's Atom Z2760 dual-core processor. The Windows 8 tablet sports 5-point multi-touch technology and will feature a "TranSleeve" keyboard, which acts as an all-in-one cover, keyboard and stand.

Elsewhere, the VivoTab Smart has an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, a five-element lens, as well as full 1080p HD video recording. Joining that is a front-facing 2-megapixel camera, in addition to a built-in NFC sensor. According to Asus, which has yet to announce pricing and availability, the tablet will sport a 9.5-hour battery life on a single charge.

    So, we have "smart tablets" now? As opposed to "dumb tablets"?? Fair enough, if we must, I guess... :(

    I'm assuming by Smart Tablet, it is some marketing wordage to describe a tablet with a full OS.

    If its running Windows 8 Pro (not RT) and gets 9.5 hours of battery life and the Atom gives good performance it could be pretty impressive. This would basically put a full PC in a tablet form factor without the battery life negatives. It would run both Apps and Native Windows applications.

    This would be equal to Apple shoving full Mac OSX system into an iPad.

    This makes this device compete against both tablets and ultrabooks. The Surface Pro coming out in a few weeks does the same, but it is limited by the iCore5 processor and platform to a 4-4.5 hour battery life.
