Asus Teases New Transforming Hinged Notebook/Tablet CombiS

The pre-CES teasing is gathering pace, with Asus releasing a selection of close-up images of forthcoming tablet devices. The shots show a standard glassy slab—plus one that appears to imitate the Inspiron Duo's transforming netbook style.

The cropped image above illustrates it all in one shot—the keyboard beneath, the touchscreen where the lid should be, plus the touch standard Menu and Back buttons. The photo set, uploaded on Asus-endorsed blog Tech in Style, also claims to show two other Asus "Eee Pads" ready to be unveiled at CES—one that appears to contain a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and one that's pure tablet.
