Asus also unveils Transformer Book V at Computex 2014

A five-mode, three-in-one device

In addition to the 4K/UHD 15.6-inch Zenbook NX500 Ultrabook, Asus has also unveiled a new member of its Transformer lineup at Computex 2014, the new Asus Transformer Book V.

Based on three components, the smartphone, tablet and the keyboard dock, the Transformer Book V is, at least according to Asus, the world's first five-mode, three-in-one converged notebook. It is a mouthful, but this is what it's all about. The three parts include a 12.5-inch tablet, a 5-inch smartphone that docks into the tablet and a keyboard dock that turns that same tablet into a 12.5-inch notebook. (Just don't be surprised when Megatron shows up asking for his nephew. Ed)

The tablet is based on a yet to be named Intel Core CPU, most likely some ULV member of the upcoming Broadwell family, paired up with 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM and up to 128GB of storage. Unfortuantely, Asus did not talk about the resolution of the 12.5-inch tablet screen and just noted that it is an HD IPS panel. The 5-inch smartphone is based on LTE-capable Intel Atom quad-core 64-bit CPU paired up with 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and up to 64GB of storage space, has an 8-megapixel camera, 2500mAh battery and runs on Android 4.4 KitKat OS.

The keyboard dock that connects all these devices into a single working notebook will apparently have its own 1TB of storage as a secondary drive. To be precise, the Asus Transformer Book V is actually a three-mode device unless you count the two OS choices as the tablet part can run on both Android and Windows OS, and even has a dedicated button to switch between them.

Unfortunately, Asus did not talk about the price or the availability date but hopefully we will see more details soon.
