YouTube video reveals new tablet and smartphone accessory from Asus
A video on Asus' YouTube channel reveals the latest Android and Windows smartphone/tablet accessory from the Taiwan based manufacturer. The Asus TransKeyboard connects to your slate or phone using Bluetooth connectivity. The TransKeyboard is slim and includes a micro USB port so that you can recharge the battery inside the unit. The cover folds back to become a stand for your tablet or handset, using magnets to keep it in place and propping up your device at the perfect angle for typing.

Unfortunately, the YouTube video is the only indication we have that such a product exists. In other words, there is no information on pricing or availability. But that shouldn't stop you from clicking on the video below to check out what should be coming in the near future from Asus. While the TransKeyboard will work with Android and Windows Phone powered smartphones, we'd expect to find this to be more popular amongst tablet users.

Not bad, but the best portable keyboard for tablets, smartphones and, if you want, your notebook... is the Logitech K810 The only downside is that it is meant for Windows 8 so not all Android shortcuts work, but most of them can be found through key combinations... But it has back-light keyboard, light sensor, proximity sensor (for illuminating again when you approach it with your hands), three quick connections for jumping from and to another device with 1-click... I rather have all of this over a prop/cover.

I'm always asking myself, laptops are turning into tablets or tablets are turning into laptops? (rhetorical question)

I would tell you that tablets are turning into laptops. :D

On the video is there an iPad Mini running (Asus's) Android?

That is clearly not an iPad, as it does not have the round Home button with a small square in the middle that all of them have. Instead it has an Asus logo where the Home button would be.

Not an iPad. An Asus tablet...there was a logo.

This looks really, really nice. I'd like to pick one up if it becomes an actual product.
