ASUS throws in the kitchen sink with the Transformer Book V

Probably one of the most interesting products that you will see come out of this year’s Computex has just been announced by ASUS. You could say that the Transformer Book V has a bit of an identity crisis, because as its name implies, it features five different operating modes. It can operate as a Windows notebook, Windows tablet, Android smartphone, Android tablet, or Android notebook.
First, let’s start off with the tablet/notebook portion. The 12.5” tablet itself has a third generation Intel Core processor onboard and runs Windows 8.1. The display is 1080p and it has a 128GB SSD that works in conjunction with a 1TB HDD for storage duties.
According to ASUS, the tablet is capable of delivering up to 10 hours of runtime via its 28 watt-hour battery. Additionally, the tablet can be converted into a notebook using the included keyboard dock.
The smartphone features a 5” display, 64-bit Intel quad-core Moorefield processor, up to 64GB of storage, an 8MP rear camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, LTE connectivity, and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Plugging the smartphone into the tablet allows you to access the full Android interface (hence the Android tablet mode), while inserting the smartphone/tablet combo into the keyboard dock gives you in essence an Android notebook.
We’re still not sure as to how well this is going to work in the real world, but we’re sure that there are at least a few enthusiasts out there that are hip to the idea of a Windows/Android convergence device.
