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.
Time for an update. I am the proud father of three, 2, 8, and 11. I finally just moved up from the Samsung Vibrant to the Samsung Galaxy S III...... 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 to hard, play even harder and take care of all that are around me when I can.
