ASUS reveals ‘Next Transformation’ as the Transformer AiO, a dual-booting Windows 8 / Android 4.0 desktop PC

Last week when ASUS teased us with their Next Transformation we kind of knew that it was a dual-booting Windows 8 / Android device. Earlier they announced their partnership with BlueStacks, and I was hopeful that wasn’t the tease. Thankfully it wasn’t as they just revealed the Transformer AiO at Computex.

It’s an all-in-one desktop PC that features an Intel Ivy Bridge processor, a discrete graphics card, and an 18.4-inch multitouch display for Microsoft Windows 8. Nothing extraordinary there, but here’s where things get interesting. If you lift the screen out of its base, it becomes a behemoth tablet. Okay what else? While in tablet mode you will be able to switch to Android 4.0. It can also be used as a Windows 8 device in tablet mode by communicating with the dock by some sort of remote desktop.

As of right now, we don’t know much more as far as any other specs or pricing. I’m sure it won’t be cheap though. The folks over at The Verge are at Computex and they grabbed a quick hands on. Hit the break to check it out.
