Asus Transformer Book Duet Android / Windows 8 tablet / laptop leaked ahead of CES 2014

Asus has apparently posted ahead of time a video showing a Transformer Book Duet tablet / laptop that will be able to dual-boot Android and Windows 8.
January 5, 2014

After teasing a dual-booting Android / Windows 8 tablet for CES 2014, Asus has mistakenly (or intentionally) leaked such a device via YouTube – the convertible tablet / laptop is apparently called Transformer Book Duet and will have model number TD300.

Spotted initially by Android World, the video has been quickly removed by Asus (see Source link below,) or at least made private until the product will be officially unveiled in Las Vegas. The publication describes the device as a quad-mode dual-OS device.

Apparently Asus has found a way to quickly move from Windows 8 to Android – the OS change takes place in around eight seconds, which certainly sounds interesting. To move between Android and Windows 8, users will simply have to place the display (tablet part) of the Transformer Book Duet in its appropriate keyboard dock.

The screenshot above, reportedly taken from the video, hints that users will also be able to “choose between Windows Tablet or Android tablet at one touch” – we’ll also notice there’s a spelling error there that Asus may want to correct before making the video public again.

Unfortunately, the video has not revealed specs and features for this Transformer Book Duet device, so we’ll just have to wait for Asus to make the product official next week at CES.

Anyone looking forward to buying such devices this year?
