Device aimed at users wanted to easily switch between work and entertainment

Asus Transformer Book V is a 5-in-1 hybrid running Windows and Android

Asus has unveiled what it claims is the world’s first smartphone, tablet and laptop all-in-one device.

Launched at Computex 2014, the Transformer Book V features an Android smartphone which slots into the back of a dual OS Windows and Android tablet.

The tablet can be combined with a keyboard dock to turn it into a laptop that can switch between Windows 8.1 and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Asus is aiming the device at users who want to switch between work and entertainment on one device.

The laptop/tablet part of the device features a 12.5-inch display and has its own Windows 8.1 OS running on Intel Core architecture. The ZenFone smartphone has a 5-inch screen and runs Android 4.4. When docked, the phone’s Android interface is displayed within Windows 8.

Because users can switch to a full Android interface, the device can be used in five different modes: Android smartphone, Android tablet, Windows tablet, Android laptop and Windows laptop.

The tablet comes with 4GB of RAM and a 28Wh battery offering up to ten hours of life. The tablet has 128Gb of storage, while the battery-less keyboard comes with a 7mm-thick hard drive of up to 1TB.

The ZenFone has a 2,500mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, 8MP and 2MP cameras, and up to 64GB of storage.

There is currently no pricing or availability details for the Transformer Book V.
