With the boundaries between the tablet and notebook becoming increasingly blurry, where does a netbook pioneer like Asus place its bets? “We believe that we have to bet on both — the tablet and the notebook,” company Chairman Jonney Shih said during an interview at AsiaD today.

And as evidence of that, Shih unveiled the next generation of its Transformer device, a tablet with a plug-in keyboard. Just 8.3 millimeters thin, the device runs on Nvidia’s quad core processor and features a 10-inch screen, a battery that reportedly holds a charge for 14.5 hours and USB and mini-HDMI ports. No other details beyond that, but we’ll find out more on Nov. 9, when Asus makes a formal announcement.
