Asus has launched a new device that works as a cellphone that also works as a Windows 8.1 machine and Android device. The Asus Transformer V dual boots into Android and it has a ZenFone built into the back of the screen. The tablet runs both Windows 8.1 and Android. You can also access ZenFone’s OS from the Windows interface and have the phone take over the tablet. You will also be able to disconnect the phone and use the screen part of the laptop with the keyboard or as a Windows 8 / Android tablet without the keyboard. All I can say is wow, that is a lot of functionality in one device.
