    ASUS Transformer AiO tablet runs Windows 8 and Android

    See how ASUS is able to run x86 Windows on an ARM chip. Cool tech.
    Watch the show..

    The All-in-One houses an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core and a 3rd generation Intel Core processor allowing it to alternate between Windows 8 and Android on the fly.

    Still looking for the Arm powered tablet!

    Re: ASUS Transformer AiO tablet runs Windows 8 and Android

    Misleading summary promises full-fledged x86 Windows 8 powered by ARM SoC, which of course is impossible as ARM simply isn't x86 instruction set capable. Instead, we're given a video preview of a device that has a hardware button enabling switching between x86 Windows 8 using docking station's i3-i7 Intel CPU and Android using tablet's Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC while docked, and only allows for Android with a WiFi connection to the x86 part when undocked. Hardly the same thing!

    If I had x86 intel inside, I wouldn't need to bother with android. Maybe a few fun apps but otherwise it's a feature that just adds to the cost but not the functionality (it's not like this thing makes phone calls).

    Re: ASUS Transformer AiO tablet runs Windows 8 and Android

    Who needs a tablet that big? Or to use a nasty annoyingly shiny/reflective screen with their docked PC? Presumably no seamless way of transferring files between the two platforms either as they're a different OS. The whole thing makes no sense to me, but maybe someone needs something like that - just can't imagine who.
