At Computex this week ASUS has unveiled a new addition to the range of Transformers with the launch of the new ASUS Transformer Book Trio which has been created to enable users to run both Microsoft’s latest Windows 8 operating system and Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
The ASUS Transformer Book Trio is fitted with a 11.6-inch, 1080p screen and is powered by a fourth-generation Core i7-4500U processor together with a 2GHz Intel Atom Z2580 chip powering the Android side of the device.
ASUS has also included dual batteries with its ASUS Transformer Book Trio, which include a 33Wh cell and a 19Wh, with storage provided by a 1TB HDD located inside the keyboard dock, and 64GB of flash storage inside the tablet itself.
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet for the ASUS Transformer Book Trio, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always. However Engadget were able to get their hands on the ASUS Transformer Book Trio and explained:
“Not one to do things by halves, ASUS has unleashed (arguably) a new product category here at Computex. We just managed to touch (and admittedly do not much more) with the Transformer Trio and it’s unmistakably ASUS-designed. You get the familiar switch-lock mechanism in the hinge to house the tablet component, and the moody metallic finish is the same we’ve seen on the rest of the Transformer range. We saw the demonstrator flip between Windows 8 and Android with a key press, although it offered no glimpse into how Android will look on the hybrid..er… hybrid. “
