Asus is the one of the leading gadget producers known for its weird range of products, just like gadgets in sci-fi movies where a tablet becomes mobile or laptop. Recently Asus announced Transformer Book Trio, a triple purpose mobile device. It offers dual operating systems and can be used as a Windows 8 desktop or Windows 8 notebook or an Android tablet.
This 11.6 inch tablet is powered by a 2GHz Intel Atom processor and a IPS display with full HD resolution and up to 64GB of storage. This tablet like the previously announced model can be docked as on the PC Station dock that has higher configuration than this tablet. You can also do some on-the-go things like detaching the display and connecting it to a TV or big monitor.
Now concentrating on the weird android cum Windows 8 operating system, just like the previous “Transformer AiO” the transition between them are smooth. The device has a physical hotkey which can be used to toggle between Android and Windows 8 , but when you remove it from the dock it only runs android. With a flavour of both jelly bean and Windows 8 users can access both Play store and Marketplace.
Despite the weirdness of two extremely different operating systems it looks like users can synchronize data and start from where they left off when moving between the two operating systems. Some early tests on internet has revealed that the switching between Operating systems with help of hotkeys was fast.
As per announcement from Asus the Transformer Book Trio will have up to 15 hours battery life and a stunning 750GB hard disk when connected to the dock , the storage of the tablet can be increased up to 64GB when removed from the dock.
The release date and price of this device is not announced yet, so if you’re planning to buy one keep your fingers crossed and stay connected with our facebook and twitter page.
Bottom line : when I was writing this post I did some research in twitter, some really liked this weird devices while some really hated but wanted to buy one and try it, if you like this “hybrid” device make sure it will satisfy your every day usage.
