Toshiba isn’t the only company bringing a Windows 8 tablet with a slide-out keyboard to market. Sony is showing off the Vaio Duo convertible ultrabook at the IFA trade show in Berlin this week.
As expected, it’s a tablet with an 11.6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display and WIndows 8 software. But if you pull out the keyboard from behind the screen, you can use the Sony Vaio Duo as an ultrabook.
The Sony Vaio Duo features a Intel Core i3 or Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB solid state disk. It has 1 USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, VGA and HDMI ports, and supports 802.11n WiFi/ Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and GPS connectivity.
Sony’s new tablet measures 12.7″ x 8.9″ x 0.7″ and weighs 2.6 pounds.
The screen is a full HD touchscreen display with IPS technology for wide viewing angles.
MobileGeeks reports the tablet will be available in Europe for 1199 Euros and up starting in late October.
