ASUS Transformer AiO – a dual boot Windows 8 and Android all-in-one PC/tablet

ASUS launched a teaser video on YouTube a few days ago, in which they mentioned a new transformation is coming out at Computex. Well, Computex 2012 is here, and ASUS is also in total action, as they launched their first-ever tablet with dual OSes. ASUS merged both Windows 8 and Android 4.0 into what they’er calling the ASUS Transformer AiO. It’s actually like an 18.4-inch all-in-one PC, but as the display is detachable, it feels like an 18.4-inch Android tablet.

ASUS showcased the prototype version at Computex, so you can expect some changes in the final version. When the 18-inch tablet is docked, it runs on a standard Windows 8 platform. However undock, and you’ll be running Android 4.0. The thing I like about it is that you can also run Android applications in Windows 8 mode, thanks to Bluestacks Android player.

There are two form factors involved here: either use it as an all-in-one PC, or use it as the world’s largest (big, fat, huge, ginormous) Android tablet. Right now, there are no words on the pricing and availability of AiO, but I hope ASUS will confirm it soon. Have a look at the video posted by Engadget, found here.
