    VivoTab UK Availability

    Hi All, just wanted to know if anyone has any ideas when the vivotab (full win 8) will be released in the uk? I cant find this information anywhere..... Im also really desperate to go and try the vivotab in a local store even if this is just the RT model just to have a good look and feel. I am interested in either the surface or the vivo but need to see both before I make my mind up....

    Thanks all

    Going by it's past releases, ASUS is notoriously drowsy with release dates.
    Sept-Oct-Nov was their initial timeline, RT out of the gate first...then the full win Vivo.
    I've only read "early next year" for the Vivo of late, your guess is probably as good as anyone's....

    I hope that Asus do release the Vivo in the UK - but given the tf700 is only released in the 64gb with dock version & then only officially through Amazon & not in any bricks & mortar stores in the UK, I don't know that we can take anything for certain.

    I can only suggest asking Asus directly, through their website.

    PLEASE Search for existing threads before posting a new one. Thanks.

    Well, to be fair to ASUS, I'd probably not be too eager to lift the receiver
    if my caller id displayed "themugger" was on the other end 'o the line.

    A few sites have January 6th listed as the date of availability thought the same sites once said December 12th. I've tried via @AsusUK on twitter but their only response is "Expect news soon" without any indication of how soon they mean.

    Having worked for a large software company in the past, I'd recomend you've low expectations with regards to getting a response. They wont announce availability until they are sure they can deliver and marketing likely don't know themselves. With regards to look and feel though, there are plenty of touchscreen Windows 8 devices in PC World and other stores, could be worth having a play with one of those to get a feel for the UI.

    Thanks jedibowler. finally got through to asus marketing. The guy was very helpful and told me that they are having manufacture problems and that's the reason for the delay, he said that some have already been sent to PC world (I have never seen anything on there site though) and amazon and a few others have placed pre orders.

    These orders are currently scheduled for release in week 3 which is January.

    I asked about the rrp and he confirmed that this is 699 and that includes the dock!
