Computex 2012: Asus announces Android + Windows 8 AIO and two tablets

Along with the announcement of their Transformer book and the TAICHI, Asus has also announced the launch of their dual booting Transformer All-in-One. Part tablet, part All-in-One PC, the Transformer AiO is an innovative device that can seamlessly switch between both, and features dual operating systems to give users the option of switching between Windows and Android to suit their needs. Engineered to work with Windows 8, the Transformer AiO features an extended 18.4 inch 10-point multi-touch LED-backlit display, which can be easily removed from its base station to become a wireless display for the AiO PC, extending the range of the PC and allowing users to continue with their work anywhere in the home. The display can also be converted into an Android-based tablet for the home with the press of a button.

Key to both the 810 and 600, however, is the supplied mobile dock that instantly transforms the tablets into compact clamshell ultraportables, complete with full QWERTY keyboards, a trackpad, additional USB expansion and a second battery for extended usage away from the power socket. Both tablets also include ASUS SonicMaster technology for supreme audio and built-in NFC sensors for easy syncing with other NFC-enabled devices.


Now, all these devices do seem to be pretty outstanding products from the outset itself. Detailed specs for their products will be available soon, so stay tuned to this space for more details.
