Description

The ASUS Transformer Book Trio is a dual-boot Android/Windows 8 tablet. The Trio tablet features an 11.6-inch 1080p display, and is powered by an Intel Atom Z2560 1.6GHz processor and 2GB of RAM. You'll get the choice of either 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of storage. The tablet side of course has Android 4.2 on board. The keyboard dock is where you'll find the power for the Windows 8 side of things. For that, you'll get a choice of processor up to an Intel Core i7 Haswell chip, 4GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of storage. One interesting thing is that the keyboard dock can be hooked up to an external display and used independently of the tablet display.

  • Physical size:
    • 11.6 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 190 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

    Positioning - This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. There are three main types: GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS. GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
