As its very name suggests, this device combines all the advantages and functionality of a Windows 8.1 tablet as well as that of a notebook all in one sleek package.

"Mark, we want to empower Pinoy consumers by providing them with an affordable laptop alternative. The O+ Convertible costs only Php 15,995 and for that amount, users can already enjoy all the benefits of a Windows 8.1 slate and get a notebook with a big screen and a great keyboard for efficient content production all at the same time. I hope you enjoy your unit," our friends from O+ USA told me as they handed me their landmark device yesterday.

The O+ Convertible is composed of two parts. First, you have the tablet, which contains all of the main hardware components of the product. And second, the keyboard dock that features a sizable zero-flex keyboard, a trackpad that's as big as a debit card, and a bonus 500 GB HDD underneath its svelte shell with tapered sides.

The slate sports a bright and brilliant 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 pixels 10-point multi-touch display, which is easily one of the biggest screens you can get for this price. At the back, you will find the 2 MegaPixel camera that's complemented by a front facing cam with the same resolution. Under the hood, O+ Convertible runs Windows 8.1 operating system with its 1.3 GHz Quad Core Intel Atom Z3735F processor, handles multitasking with 2GB of RAM, and has 32GB of expandable storage. The device is powered by a 6,400 mAh battery pack providing around 6 to 8 hours of uptime, based on our initial testing. The tablet also comes with a number of ports including one for microUSB, another for USB 2.0 as well as a micro-HDMI port for connecting it to a larger display.

O+ Convertible's Keyboard Dock features one of the best tactile keyboards with island-style keys that I've used so far; It's a near full-sized keyboard that's a joy to use when blogging or typing documents. The springy feedback on the solid, flex-free base really provides a great typing experience. I invite you to try it for yourself at any O+ Concept Store near you.

You can easily mount the tablet on the keyboard dock via a couple of slots lined with magnets. You may mount it with the screen facing the other side for presentation, photo, or movie viewing mode.

O+ Convertible is now available at all O+ Concept Stores, Kiosks, and authorized retail partners nationwide. Again, its official SRP is only Php 15,995 and that already includes the Keyboard Dock with 500 GB additional storage space.
