Sony's VAIO Duo 11, a Windows 8-based convertible tablet

Sony shows off their VAIO Duo 11, a Windows 8-based convertible tablet

I'm not all that excited for Windows 8 on desktop, but mobile devices like tablets and hybrid beasts are going to be amazing with Microsoft's upcoming operating system. Sony has made the news today with PocketNow reporting of their upcoming VAIO Duo 11.

Sony's VAIO Duo 11 looks to be an 11-inch device, thanks to the '11' in its name, and the 'Duo' parts seems to point toward the fact that its a convertible tablet. More details on the device aren't available right now, but it looks like the convertible tablet also sports the ability to use a stylus pen.

This means we should be able to use the Sony tablet as a normal tablet with our fingers, and when we want to do some handwriting, we can whip out the stylus pen and go all Picasso on the VAIO Duo 11. The keyboard looks to be backlit, which is another bonus. The keyboard is not detachable, and I think this is a great idea. These hybrid devices should sport a thin, but attached, keyboard. Typing on a tablet feels ridiculous, and if you can type relatively fast, you'll respect Sony's decision to include an attached keyboard.
