"Accessories make this Tablet, what accessories?"1.0 starson by OBaldy1
Pros: ATOM - pretty nippy compared to netbooks I've used. This is what the Atom should have been. On comparing it with friends Surface RT's I'd say this is a better performer.
Hardware seems pretty good.
Cons: Accessories, Accessories, Accessories!!!!
Lack of updates/Drivers from ASUS
Case is a little creaky, but I'd say ok at the price point.
Speakers are on the back exactly where you want to hold the device. A stand should help with this, if it arrives
Summary: I agree with everything the reviewer says in the review regarding the Vivo Tab Smart, it's a really nice little device, I've bought one and it's currently my favourite toy. But as the review states, it's the accessories that bring it all together.
That's where the problem's start, the accessories aren't available in the UK, not even from the ASUS store, hell I emailed them and they couldn't even tell me if they would be release this side of the Atlantic. For a device that relies on it's accessories to stand out this is a bit of a problem.
I wouldn't recommend anyone purchase this device until these are made available, I constantly bang into situations where a keyboard would be handy, or even a cover that fits properly, I think this is a pretty poor show from ASUS.
