Asus is about to launch the biggest tablet PC, the Asus Transformer AiO.
It seems like the world of electronics doesn’t run out of new things to offer its consumers. Especially in the growing tablet market, more and more of these devices enter the market offering something distinctive. Retina displays, thinnest frames, dual cameras, portable sizes and so on. However, a recent release made a big impact to consumers and quite literally.
Give a round of applause for the biggest tablet PC to-date: the Asus Transformer AiO.
As part of the computer and electronics manufacturer effort to grow its digital marketing and sales, Asus is offering this one-of-a-kind, innovative tablet version. While most companies are looking at making tablets that are as portable as possible, Asus is changing the game. The Transformer AiO is what the Winnipeg Free Press describes as “comically large,” sitting at 18.4 inches, almost twice the size of the iPad.
Now, we really don’t know what the people at Asus (creators of the 7-inch MeMo pad) were thinking when they created this gigantic tablet, but one thing’s for sure, Asus is up to something.
Trying to optimise the growing number of tablet consumers, the company created a niche for itself offering what seems to be the biggest tablet, at least for now. But the size of this gadget isn’t the only thing big about it. It’s also huge on features.
This 18.4-incher claims to be the only gadget you’ll need. Why is that? Well, AiO actually stands for “All in One.” The Transformer AiO doubles as a gigantic tablet and a desktop. How is that possible? When the tab is plugged into a base included with the package, the AiO becomes a complete Windows 8-powered PC. However, when unplugged, the online platform automatically runs back to its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
With this dual feature, the tab becomes the perfect home gadget. It can be the family desktop computer, outfitted with an Intel i7 processor and 8 GB RAM. It can also be the tablet where the siblings can watch YouTube videos or check their Facebook accounts.
“You’d be smart to wait and see how the market develops, but Asus has used the freedom of the still-forming all-in-one/tablet hybrid category to create a compelling Windows 8/Android device in the Transformer AIO,” CNET’s review noted.
While the tablet is a very interesting gadget, consumers looking for a tablet may not be interested once they find out the price. With its price tag starting at $1,299, people may just want to consider an iPad and a laptop instead.
