£320 Asus VivoTab TF600T tablet: Windows RT on its way out?

Saveonlaptops is currently selling the Asus VivoTab TF600T Windows RT tablet for £320. That's less than what it sells it for on its eBay outlet and almost half its original selling price.

As for the majority of Windows RT devices, this one runs on a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz. There's 2GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage.

Other features include a 10.1in 1,280 x 800 pixel IPS display, a microSD card reader that theoretically allows you to double the onboard storage capacity, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a front facing 2-megapixel one, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, a microHDMI port, up to eight hours battery life and weighs a mere 525g.

We can't help but believe that Asus and its partners are selling this tablet at a loss especially as it packs some cracking specifications. If only we could swap Microsoft's OS for Android.

Dell's XPS 10, which comes with a lower spec, costs £249 and is the cheapest Windows RT tablet on the market. Samsung's Ativ Tab is on sale for £299 and Lenovo's Yoga 11 is by far the most expensive at £399. It does however come with a keyboard.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
