    Surprised no one has mentioned this. It went on sale on the Microsoft Store Online. And it has already sold out. Those looking for a 8 inch windows 8 tablet with a Wacom Stylus would like this. Asus’ Wacom-equipped Windows tablet goes on sale for $329, $30 more than expected | The Verge

    It's interesting but it dont have a SIM slot. I'm after a tablet from Nokia, powered by Windows 8.1 Pro, with SIM slot, Wacom digitizer, GPS (support HERE Maps), 20/41MP PureView camera.

    Dang. That's a pretty steep price change. Supply and demand I suppose.

    Looks like they have taken it off the US site as it is no longer there.

    No kidding, it's just a good deal (with the Wacom digitizer). I suspected early on that there'd be a price hike from the originally-set $299, the pen stuff is a real selling point for a fair number of people.

    I really like it. For me the pen -- and especially that it stores in the body of the tablet itself -- was the big selling point over, say, the Dell Venue 8 Pro. The pen is a bit of a matchstick, but still comes in handy for taking notes etc.
    The screen is nice and bright.
    There was 17.6GB free space out of the box.

    They must have gotten an early batch of these bad boys and then sold 'em out. This tablet doesn't even appear on Asus own web site! (EDIT: it's here: http://www.asus.com/Tablets_Mobile/A...b_Note_8_M80TA)

    I did notice on Friday night (2/14/2014) that they had one on display in the Bellevue, WA Microsoft store. Not sure what that means in terms of whether they have them in stock (sometimes stock in the stores in different from what you see on the MS Store website).

    I want to find a case for it but I imagine that will have to wait until they are *actually* released and available (as opposed to some kind of soft launch we just saw).

    I bought mine in Taiwan for about 370 USD, which is cheaper than how much it costs here in Australia (around $450 + delivery). I got the 64GB version.

    So far so good. Actually, very good. I think the size is perfect for browsing, reading and note taking. The active digitizer, of course, is the killer feature. The OneNote app is fantastic (and good to have the full version available too - free).

    I'm also very impressed how well Windows 8.1 works at this size. I was already a fan of the OS on my desktop but now can appreaciate how well thought out the system is for touch.

    PS Shouldn't WP Central open an Asus VivoTab Note 8 forum?
