As the approaching of Windows 8 official release, there’re more and more reports on Windows 8 devices. From the exclusive report of an unnamed PocketNow source, Sony is gearing up to give Microsoft Surface a run for its money with a new convertible tablet hybrid of its own running on Windows 8, reportedly named as Sony VAIO Duo 11. There’re some pictures regarding this new convertible notebook-tablet hybrid leaked online.
Though we couldn’t get very detailed and precise specs about this new tablet, the pictures leaked do show us some features of Sony VAIO Duo 11. First of all, PocketNow predicts that the new device is supposed to feature an 11" touchscreen with convertible keyboard and supporting stylus. We can also see Microsoft Office running on the tablet in one of the images. The keyboard also appears to be backlit, and PocketNow points out that the keyboard isn’t detachable – it’s on there for good. That, when coupled with the office setting of the images, leads us to believe that the VAIO Duo 11 will be aimed more at business people than mainstream consumers.
Another obvious thing is the use of stylus. We can see from the leaked pictures a stylus is attached. From the pictures leaked there, we may take a guess that the stylus might play a great role on the new notebook-tablet hybrid. But for the price and release date, the PocketNow source mentioned nothing. The following are two more pictures leaked:
