ASUS Unveils Transformer Book V Hybrid Android Smartphone, Tablet, And Windows 8.1 Convertible
The 12.5-inch device runs an Intel Core processor and has 1TB of internal storage in laptop mode; in tablet mode, it has 128GB of storage. As a smartphone, the Book V is a 5-inch LTE device with a quad-core Intel Atom processor. Switching between modes is a simple process.
ASUS also has a new pile of Android devices launching at Computex aimed at satisfying a “wide range” of needs including new MeMO Pads, Fonepads, and Transformer Pads, as well as a new Windows 8.1 convertible.

The MeMO Pad 7 will be available in white, black, blue, red, and yellow, while the MeMO Pad 8 is coming in white, black, gold, and purple. (Yes, gold and purple.)
