Sony VAIO Duo 11 Hybrid With Windows 8 Pro Revealed At IFA Berlin 2012

At IFA Berlin 2012 Sony unveiled the Xperia Tablet S, but also an interesting hybrid that can be placed somewhere between an ultrabook and a tablet.

Its name is Sony VAIO Duo 11 and it comes with a Surf Slider that allows the user to transform this gadget from tablet to ultrabook and viceversa, in the quickest and easiest way.

There’s no wonder that Sony VAIO Duo 11 has got the looks, but let’s see what’s hid under the pretty case of this ingenious made in Japan product. VAIO Duo 11 comes with a 11.6-inch display with full HD 1,920 x 1,080 pixels resolution and it’s powered by several Intel solutions: Intel Core i3-3217U, i5-3317U, i7-3517U.

Sony VAIO Duo 11 can sport 4 or 8 MB of RAM at 1,600 MHz, 128 or 256 GB of SSD storage and it packs an Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU.

As you probably guessed the hybrid Sony device comes pre-loaded with Microsoft’s latest creation, Windows 8 Pro. VAIO Duo 11 has Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, VGA, HDMI, slot SD, NFC, 2.03 megapixel web camera with EXMOR technology and 1080p video recording, plus a stylus.

Sony VAIO Duo 11 weighs in only 1.3 kg and is 17.85 mm thick. The tablet – ultrabook hybrid will become available for purchase starting October 2012, depending on the country.

Of course, we are talking about a tablet / ultrabook hybrid that will probably be pretty expensive, that’s why I can’t see VAIO Duo 11 as a product for the masses, but as a device focusing on a certain segment of the market, meant for those who need max portability and powerful processing. Windows 8 Pro paired with such powerful hardware should run pretty smooth and it should leave the entertainment area for the business environment.
