ASUS went and did it. Meet the Transformer AiO, 18.4-inches of dual booting Windows and Android Goodness

We all saw the teaser commercial that ASUS put on YouTube for Computex. It showed a single water droplet that split into to two showing both a Windows 8 logo and and Android logo. We thought it was pretty safe to assume that ASUS was planning to unveil a dual-booting tablet of some sorts that would fully run both OS’s. Everyone who thought that would be correct, sort of.

Meet the ASUS Transformer AiO all-in-one PC. It is an 18.4-inch all-in-one touchscreen PC. It is capable of booting into Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, and also Windows 8. It sits nicely on a stand, but is detachable to be used as a tablet on the Android side of things.

While we like the idea a lot, we are fairly concerned on how it will appeal to the masses. An 18.4-inch Android tablet is pretty ridiculously huge, but it has a lot of potential for the truly geeky. What do you guys think? Is this next on your shopping list? Maybe start saving now for a Christmas present if it launches by then? We aren’t entirely sold on it yet. We were expecting something more along the lines of a 10.1-inch dual-booting device with the same look and functionality as the Prime. It will be interesting to see what happens with the Transformer AiO in the near future.

I am the proud father of three, 3, 9, and 12. I recently upgraded from the Samsung Galaxy S3 to the Sony Xperia Z. Having so many kids warranted a change of pace. Let me tell you, it is mind blowing. I love Android, I love tech and I love my family. Not in that order though. I work hard, play even harder and take care of all that are around me when I can.
