Tekkie Tekkie Muna (this seems like an ordinary launch, but hey they did say they wanted to focus on the products rather than celebrities and fireworks), the brands are now revealing to the public their new devices after the October 30 launch of Windows 8.
Asus launched its Windows 8 compatible devices today, November 6, 2012, to the media people at the R Space venue in Makati at around noon.
To those who purchased PC and laptops with licensed Windows 7 OS, this is good news for you..

The Asus Vivo tablets got its name from the Latin word “to live” and the units were designed for the Windows 8 operating system.
Vivo has a dual-purpose design that combines a high-resolution multi-touch Super IPS+ display with a detachable QWERTY keyboard dock to provide a great Windows 8 experience. ASUS TruVivid technology with Corning Fit Glass gives improved colour clarity and superior scratch resistance, while the keyboard not only transforms Vivo into a convenient clamshell ultraportable, but also provides a secondary battery for prolonged mains-free use.
When Windows 8 computers start shipping later this year, they will come with a brand-new firmware feature called Secure Boot (UEFI). A year ago, Linux lovers were worrying that Secure Boot was going to somehow give Linux the boot, but now it looks like there’s a brand-new twist to the story. It could be used to keep Microsoft’s software from running on a computer.
