Windows RT Based ASUS VivoTab Now $549 With Free Keyboard

When Microsoft officially announced pricing on it's own Microsoft Surface tablet with Windows RT and and a touch cover for $599 they sent waves through the marketplace. Several companies had already announced plans and pricing on their own Windows RT based tablets and many of those were priced well above that of Microsoft's offering.

It now appears as though at least one company, ASUS, is going to lower the price of their tablets to compete with Microsoft's pricing. According to Neowin several retailers have dropped the price of the Asus VivoTab RT tablet down a bit, and ASUS has began offering a promotion that gives users a free detachable keyboard. 

Both and B&H are showing the Asus VivoTab RT tablet to be currently priced at $549.99 (OfficeMax and Newegg are also offering the same pricing). ASUS is also running a promotion for any customer that registers their VivoTab on the company's website a FREE Mobile Dock. The Mobile Dock features a chiclet keyboard, multi-touch touchpad and USB port, all while increasing battery life up to 16 hours.

This is a pretty sweet deal for ASUS fans and honestly a bit surprising for a tablet that's only been on the market for a few days.
