It’s not often that we can say that we have something a unique and what we have here is a hybrid device that has more than just 2 categories, it has 5! The Transformer Book V aka 5 is a 2-in-1 Windows 8 laptop with a detachable Android phone. Only at Computex would you see something this crazy!
What we’ve got here is a 12.5-inch hybrid tablet & laptop running Windows 8.1 on an Intel Core processor which can be teamed up with the 5-inch Zenfone which is a Smartphone running Android 4.4 Kit Kat. Under the hood of the smartphone is another Intel processor a 64-bit quad-core Atom (Moorefield) chip with LTE radio.
What is extra special about this tag team device is that when the phone is docked you can see the interface on top of Windows 8, if you want to run Android full screen, you can switch to that mode. So the Android on the phone can turn into Android on the Tablet or on the Laptop.
So the reason the device is dubbed the Transformer Book V is its 5 modes, Windows tablet, Windows laptop, Android phone, Android tablet and an Android laptop. We have no word on pricing or availability but since the device was eye’s on only and shown off behind glass we can only assume we won’t be seeing it anytime soon.
