BERLIN: LAPTOP TABLET convertibles are all the rage at the IFA tradeshow this week, and Taiwanese computer maker Asus made no excreption, showing off its Taichi notebook tablet hybrid.

The Windows 8 device was initially unveiled at Computex in June this year.

What's unique about the Taichi is that instead of the screen detaching and turning into a tablet, there is a second touchscreen on the notebook's lid that can be used simultaneously when open, or as a tablet when closed.

Asus said it expects to launch the Taichi in Europe and the UK sometime before Christmas. µ
