Asus teases Windows 8/Android hybrid AIO

ASUS is teasing a new hybrid All-in-One (AIO) on YouTube that calls for a Windows 8/Android hybrid. The 16 second video was posted today and gives a hint that ASUS will release a new hybrid AIO at Computex which is June 5-9.

There is not much to go on except the video alone at this point but bringing Android to the desktop, as that is where we typically see an AIO marketed, will be an interesting twist to the traditional AIO. Of course, this could mean that ASUS is also developing a Windows 8/Android tablet too, which seems much more plausible as that is where Android is typically used.

What will ASUS bring to Computex, we will find out in a few short days.

What average user is truly going to want this? I mean, I can see how this could be helpful when you're a Windows and Android developer. But beyond that...

But why would I want that ugly thing on my computer? You would think google could find a better color theme than the Halloween black, gray, and orange.

B-b-but... if you don't like Android, you can customize or rewrite the entire OS and make it behave exactly the way you want it!

'that calls for a Windows 8/Android hybrid'
So are they going to use an intel chip or arm, that's a big question!

Lol at vaporware above ^.

I've had laptops from ASUS and HP that have "quick boot" software. Just little browsers, media players and such...would make a lot of sense if they could push android that way. I'd be a lot more interested in a tablet that could do that.

Android doesn't quick boot though, I have no measurements but from using them I feel W8 is a faster boot than ICS!
