Sony VAIO Duo 11 will be a convertible Windows 8 tablet
The official release of Windows 8 and the Surface tablet isn't expected for another two months, but that's not stopping the leaks about various Windows 8 tablets that will be available. The newest leak is for Sony's VAIO Duo 11 tablet, which looks very ready to take on Microsoft and the other Windows 8 manufacturers, like Lenovo, and Samsung

Unfortunately, not a lot is known about the tablet. We do know that it will feature an 11 inch screen, that it will have a stylus, and that it will be a convertible tablet with a full backlit hardware keyboard. Not much else is known about the device. It is assumed to be running full Windows 8, and not Windows 8 RT, because one of the leaked images shows a full version of Office being run. 

Overall, the tablet looks a lot like any other Windows 8 tablet that we've seen. The convertible keyboard looks nice as long as it doesn't add too much bulk, and the backlit keys are very nice. And, of course, it's nice to see tablets moving past the 10" barrier finally.

so you mean to say that a "god" is the last one to enter an existing market of phones? :)) You're ridiculous. Without motorola, nokia, sony, and ericson. THERE'S NO CELLPHONE/SMARTPHONE!.

I know right? I guess we should just wait to know if the Tablet S will get Jelly Bean...even though it became ridiculously fast after ICS

Was hell bent on the Microsoft surface but the backlit keyboard on the this thing will definitely make me take a closer look!

W8 is going to be huge it seems like. We're starting to see the different OEM's hardware and competition is going to be fierce for our consumer dollars. I would seriously consider a Sony W8 tablet if price is right.

I wonder if this will play nice with the PS3. I am very excited about these Windows 8 tablets coming out. Can't wait to play with them. Also is this a step for Sony to produce a Windows Phone powered handset? After a slow start in the smartphone/tablet game. Sony is definitely ramping up the intensity and mass appeal.

They should make a Vaio WP8 device to compliment that Tablet.
