The ASUS Transformer Book Trio is available in Intel Core i5 (P49,995) and i7 variants (P54,995)

MANILA, Philippines – Taiwan-based tech company ASUS announced the availability in the Philippines of two convertible laptop-tablet hybrids, including a 3-in-one that runs Windows 8 and Android. 

Transformer Book Trio

Like most laptop-tablet hybrids, you can detach the Asus Transformer Book Trio’s 11.6-inch display from its keyboard dock, but with the press of a button, you can also switch from Windows 8 to Android operating systems. This allows you to use the device as you would a standalone Android tablet. 

The detached keyboard doesn’t go to waste either. Connect a separate monitor via Mini DisplayPort or Micro HDMI and the keyboard will boot like a normal desktop PC.

The Transformer Book Trio is available in Intel Core i5 (P49,995) and i7 variants (P54,995). Both devices come with 4GB of RAM and 500GB hard drives. The tablet runs off a separate Intel Atom processor.

Transformer Pad TF701T

The Transformer Pad TF701T is an Android tablet with a bundled keyboard. The hybrid device is powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor and is rated to last two full working days or about 17 hours on a single charge. The 10.1-inch display on the Transformer Pad has a 2560 x 1600 WQXGA resolution with a 178-degree viewing angle. The device retails for P27,995.

MemoPad 8 / MemoPad 10

Also released recently are two tablets, the MeMo Pad 8 and the Memo Pad 10 – the numbers represent screen size in inches. Both tablets are powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM and run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. 

The Memo Pad HD 8 retails for P9,995 while the HD sells for P13,995. –
