ASUS Vivo Tab Windows RT tablet available on Three UK

The ASUS Vivo Tab, running Windows RT, is now available on Three. The UK carrier has the tablet listed for £30.99 on a 24-month contract with an upfront fee of £199. While the price may seem slightly on the expensive side of the fence, the plan does include 15GB data allowance and makes use of the network's expansive coverage.

So what does the Vivo Tab sport regarding specifications? Should you wish to pick one up, you'll not be disappointed with the 1.3GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra chip, 10.1" IPS display (1366x768), 8MP rear shooter (with 2MP front-facing camera), WiFi, mobile connectivity (unlike the Surface), Bluetooth, 2GB DDR3 RAM and 64GB internal storage.

Three ASUS Vivo

Three is offering next-day delivery which will surely get the Windows RT tablet to the door by December 28th. If you're not into purchasing the tablet at full price, this is a great deal to get the tablet as well as a secured plan for mobile data. With the 15GB allowance per month, there should be no issue with video playback, heavy web browsing and tonnes of email.

Three previously published a quick video walkthrough of the tablet and the dockable keyboard.

Windows RT is Microsoft's latest desktop operating system that takes advantage of mobile hardware. While it can run all apps presently available on the Windows Store, Windows RT does not sport the ability to run legacy software in the desktop app. Should you wish to run software which was loaded on Windows 7, be sure check out a Windows 8 tablet.

The ASUS Vivo Tab joins the iPad and Nexus 7 tablets running iOS and Android respectively. Pushing Windows, Three is offering hardware from each platform to provide customers with ample choice when finding a personalised solution. The Windows Rt tablet is a perfect purchase for the new year.
