Global leader in computing innovation Intel recently held the second leg of its Mobility Roadshow in Cebu City to showcase the latest host of devices for increased connectivity and productivity. This year, Intel is set to drive its solid line of tablet devices and full-performance 2-in-1s to provide consumers options at the best value.
According to Intel Philippines country manager Calum Chisholm, the tablet market in the Philippines continues to increase exponentially and is expected to post a 40 percent growth this year. As both multinational companies and local game changers present more choices in Android and Windows platforms, Intel’s technology will remain the mark of excellence. Chisholm further adds that the company is working closely with its OEM partners to integrate its leading 64-bit technology to increase mobile performance and storage capacity.
To extend a more personal computing experience, Intel will also offer 2-in-1 devices that provide touch and type capabilities so that users can take advantage of the mobility of a tablet combined with the power of a laptop.
I myself was in disbelief when seeing the 2-in-1 brands in action, especially the DUAL OS capability (not dual boot). I totally agree with Intel that consumers are having a lot of gadgets and that like myself I woul want a device wherein storage, work and play can all be done. What better way to have all that in a 2-in-1? Although I was liking what ASUS did with their ASUS Transformer Book Trio which is basically a laptop (with a netbook size), can become a tablet once screen is removed while the remaining keyboard body (which houses a separate Hard drive and OS) can be connected to a TV screen or the like and run itself as a separate desktop device. And because its a 2 in 1, it's basically a smaller Ultra book! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? #Drooling
