In Short

ASUS first revealed its ZenPad 8.0 tablet back at Computex 2015 during its Zensation event. Alongside the 8-inch version, ASUS also announced both a 7-inch and 10-inch variant of the tablet, but the main focus was on the ZenPad 8.

Preloaded with ASUS' custom Zen UI on top of Android 5.0, the ZenPad 8 packs some decent specs. The ZenPad 8 is not a flagship style tablet, but that doesn't mean that the company took it easy with what they included in the tablet. ASUS is offering the tablet in three different color options, which include black leather back, pearl white or aurora metallic.

Hands-on with the ZenPad Tablets

As far as accessories, ASUS has prepared a number of great additions for this tablet. First up is the folio cover, which wraps and protects the tablet with great style, and provides a quick and easy place to keep your stylus at all times. On the inside, you can store business cards, credit cards or other small papers as well. In addition, ASUS is offering a speaker case, which provides great sound if you'd rather use it as a media player than a business tablet.
