Asus Vivo Tab RT pre-sales begin, first Windows RT tablet starts at $599.99

We knew Windows RT tablets wouldn't be cheap, and those warnings have now been confirmed with the release of new Asus Vivo RT, formely known as the tablet 600, is now available for pre-order for $599.99 from online retailers including Staples, Newegg, TigerDirect and FutureShop. That's only for the 10.1-inch Tegra 3 tablet computer itself, mind you, as the keyboard docking station required to turn it into a genuine Transformer (and double the unit's battery life) will cost an additional $200. TigerDirect has a bundle with both the tablet and keyboard for $799.99, while Staples is offering what appears to be a discount on the keyboard, selling it for $169.99. Newegg says the tablet will be released on October 26th, while FutureShop in Canada is estimating November 2nd availability

 Meanwhile, the new Transformer Pad Infinity does indeed cost the same $599.99, but there you get a full 1920 x 1200 display and a faster 1.6GHz processor for your extra dollars.

Of course, Windows RT isn't really trying to compete with Android, it's trying to challenge Apple's iPad by bringing Windows productivity to the low-power tablet realm, and this device starts $100 higher than the latest iPad as well. Unless buyers agree that Microsoft's OS is worth the premium, Apple may prove a fearsome incumbent.
