Asus With Transformer Book V Mixes Windows With Android For Crazy 5-in-1 Device

In Taiwan’s biggest annual exhibition of new Technology, Asus had made the splashiest announcement at its outset, revealed a new Transformer Book V, which was today wrapped off by Jonney Shih that runs Windows or Android, either in laptop or Tablet mode and also adds a dock for an Android smartphone on its back. Full details on how this Transformer Book V works after this break!

Although it’s only an expansion of the Transformer Book Duet concept, where the Android part of the operation is handled by a 5-inch, Intel Atom-powered smartphone. And the Book V is smaller than the Duet at 12.5-inches and gives user a choice between running Windows 8.1 or Android 4.4 KitKat – switchable nearly instaneously through a dedicated button.

At ComputerX, Asus’s other announcements are slightly more conventional. The Zenbook NX500 is a new 15.6-inch laptop with 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160) pixels screen and fitted with an aluminum unibody. Specifications include an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M graphics chip with 2GB of video memory and top-end Core i7 Intel CPU. Alternative to Apple’s MacBook Pro, the ASUS NX500 provides lot more than expected.

Third would be the Transformer Book T300 Chi, which will be the biggest competitor to Microsoft Surface Pro 3. This 12.5-inch Windows tablet is only 7.3mm thick, comes with a 2560 x 1440 pixels display, and unlike the Surface Pro, it doesn’t require a fan to keep it cool. A detachable keyboard transforms that tablet into a laptop.

Asus has a new Transformer Pad, new Fonepads and MeMO Pads, a new 32-inch 4K monitor, and even a refreshed 802.11ac Wi-Fi router that still looks like a piece of threatening alien technology.

With multifunctional devices like Transformer Book Flip, running Windows 8.1 on a 13.3-inch 1080p display can be rotated from 0 to 360 degrees. Similar to that seen on LENOVO’S Yoga series. Also introduced 14- and 15.6-inch options and affordability seems to be a major emphasis with this device.
