Tablets get more sophisticated, with bigger screens, dual OSes and car access

Michael Kan | Jan. 10, 2014
Tablets are getting bigger screens, moving into cars, and dual-booting Windows and Android at this year's International CES show as tech vendors give a glimpse into the gadget's future.

The Chinese manufacturers expect the tablets will be priced around US$250. At the show, chip maker Intel said it was working to pave the way for dual OSes on PCs and tablets. Taiwanese vendor Asus also is moving in that direction. It introduced the Transformer Book Duet TD300, which can transform itself from a laptop to a tablet and also switch between Android and Windows with the press of an on-screen button. Asus' device will arrive in late March, starting at $599.
