TechinStyle, who I believe is an ASUS project, have an exclusive first look at the ASUS TaiChi.
The video is worth watching for details and a great demo of the screens, both HD and IPS.
USB3.0 x2, combo 3.5 audio jack, micro HDMI, mini display port connectors, and a host of table sensors. Note that the power, screen and rotation lock are also mirrored as keys on the keyboard.
Check out the video below. Check out the latest TaiChi specs and information links here.
From the press release:
Better still, while they provide access to the same hardware, the two screens are completely independent of each other and can also be used simultaneously, which means the Taichi can be shared with two users for a host of innovative new applications
At first it sounded as though this meant that the screens could be used independently. Now it seems they are just talking about the mirror mode. Still, there are some interesting possibilities with this, especially for gaming. It will depend whether or not Windows 8 will support simultaneous touch and mouse inputs. Note also that the inside screen does not appear to be a touchscreen.
Rotation lock, accelerometer, magnetometer (e-compass), and NFC are all included; great because these are all the important things that a tablet needs. Very impressive that they managed to fit all of this in the Asus TaiChi along with two displays and are still able to hit the Ultrabook thinness criteria!
