Authored by: Deactivated Account — Sep 4, 2013

Samsung wasn’t the only one showcasing devices at the IFA. Asus jumped on the bandwagon and presented a new device at a press conference that fills the roll of three devices: A Windows notebook, an Android tablet, and a desktop PC.

The Transformer Book Trio consists of two parts: a tablet and a keyboard dock that houses a second processor. Without the keyboard dock, the Transformer Book Trio can be used as an Android tablet. With it docked in the keyboard, you can switch between Android 4.2 and Windows 8 with the touch of a button. Data exchange will be possible via the integrated solid-state drive, according to Asus. There is also the possibility to connect the notebook to an external monitor and use it as a desktop PC.
