At Computex in Taipei, Asus has just announced a pretty serious piece of hardware dubbed the Asus Transformer Book V. The device has a 12.5 inch screen for use as a laptop/tablet running Windows 8.1. Under the hood is an Intel Core CPU with 4GB of RAM on board. 1TB of native storage is included on the Windows side of the equation, with the hard drive found embedded inside the QWERTY keyboard...

I want all of these now! Phone isn't enough, laptop is broken, tablet is slow.

I don't get it. So the tablet part can be used without the phone to run Windows, or is the phone necessary to power the tablet/laptop?

Nope, it is not necessary. The phone bring LTE connectivity to the tablet on the move. Without the phone, you can only connect to the net using the Wifi on the tablet

Think of the phone like a bootable USB stick or hard drive. The Convertable is just windows and "boots" off the phone when it is plugged in. (without turning off and on) (of course, i think it will ask you if you want to switch to Android).

Given that's its taken three-four years to get a US carrier to offer even the updated original version of the padfone, (which still isn't quite available for sale) its questionable if we will see this on our shore during its viable lifetime.

This is literally exactly what I was looking for a couple of months ago. If it wasn't for this, I probably would have stabbed someone by now because of how pissed I am from Apple adding widget and third party keyboard support.
