Two in one devices are becoming more popular as consumers look for something that has the productivity functionality of a laptop and the convenience of a tablet. 51Cube has announced something it hopes will do just that. A 10.1 inch Windows 8 tablet that can be easily turned into a fully functioning PC.
When folded in on itself, the iWork 10 looks like a traditional, Windows 8 tablet. Unfold it though and you’ll find a laptop quality keyboard, complete with a two button mousepad. Its case even allows the iWork 10 to stand on its own, not unlike an all-in-one desktop computer.
Gizchina News of the week
Inside, the iWork 10 sports 2GB of RAM, 32GBs of storage and Intel’s dual-core Bay Trail CPU with hyperthreading clocked at 1.8Ghz. It also includes dual speakers for stereo sound, a 10.1 inch IPS screen (exact resolution unknown) an HDMI port and WiFi and 3G functionality.
Disconnect it from its base and it becomes a 6.9mm thin tablet. While the battery size hasn’t been revealed, the device has a standby (sleep) battery life of 21 days.
While Windows 8 has had its share of bad news as of late, its combination of touch screen functionality with traditional desktop sections may be perfect for two in one devices.
No release date or price on the iWork 10 has been announced, but we will keep you up to date with information as we get it.[Image: 51Cube]
I’m guessing that you can remove the tablet from the keyboard?
Yes, according to the article “Disconnect it from its base and it becomes a 6.9mm thin tablet” which is cool, I can’t wait
How is this any better than the asus t100?
3g. the rest is more or less the same. i want a similar system but with 4gb or ram to be more usable.
often in these cheapish tablets “3g supported” means “compatible with 3g usb sticks”
Not in this case, 3G is included in the device
a fast release would be nice
