ASUS bridges Android and Windows 8 with the new Transformer Book Trio

From the outside the ASUS Transformer Book Trio looks like a tablet that connects to a keyboard. This idea isn’t new in the tech world, but this isn’t what makes this device stand out. What actually makes this device interesting is what happens while it’s connected to the keyboard. The tablet portion of the device has a built-in processor, and so does the keyboard… Once it is connected, the processor within the keyboard takes over, along with Windows 8. Likewise, once it is disconnected it switches back over to the Android platform. The operating systems can be switched between with the switch of a button on the keyboard as well, making the Trio stand out above other hybrids.
