Consumers who are undecided as to what device to buy and which operating system they would like to work with might want to take a look at the Asus Transformer Book V. This is an Intel powered device that acts as a 12.5-inch Windows laptop at its fullest. Detaching the keyboard transforms it into a Windows tablet. At the back of the display is a 5-inch Android smartphone that can be used to power the tablet and is detacheable so it can be used as a phone as well. Connect the keyboard back to the display and now you have an Android tablet.
With all of the configurations possible with the Asus Transformer Book V it’s basically a 5-in-1 device which is a good choice for the undecided consumer. The company announced that the “Transformer Book V is the world’s first five-mode, three-in-one converged laptop that features a Windows and Android laptop and tablet as well as an Android smartphone, making it an incredibly flexible device able to excel in any usage scenario. Its revolutionary and elegant design comprises a laptop with a detachable 12.5-inch screen that becomes a separate tablet and a 5-inch smartphone that docks into the tablet.”
In its laptop mode the device has access to a full QWERTY keypad as well as the touchpad. It can run on wither Windows 8.1 or Android 4.4 in this mode. A dedicated hardware button allows users to seamlessly switch between both operating systems. The laptop makes use of a next-generation Intel Core processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD (plus up to 1TB as an HDD in the keyboard), and a 28Wh battery.
By detaching the keyboard of the device it automatically transforms into a tablet that can run on either Windows 8.1 or Android 4.4 KitKat. A user just has to tap on the screen to switch between the two operating systems. One of the best features of this device in this mode is that it has access to the Google Play Store as well as the Windows Store which translates to millions of apps. With its 128GB of available storage users will be able to store lots of music, videos, and photos on the device.
The phone mode is activated by detaching the 5-inch smartphone at the back of the display. This device runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and uses an Intel Atom quad-core processor. It also has an LTE connectivity feature providing users with blazingly fast Internet connection speeds. The phone itself comes with a 2500mah battery that’s able to provide at least 10 hours of web browsing time.
Asus has yet to reveal how much this device is going to cost or when it will be released in the market.
