Computex Asia's

Microsoft unveiled two new Windows devices -- a tablet-laptop hybrid and a seven-inch tablet -- at Computex Asia's largest tech show in Taiwan Wednesday. Tapping in to the "2-in-1" trend for Tablets with keyboards and laptops with detachable keyboards, which is a dominant theme at this year's Computex, the HP Pro X2 612 has a stylus, cameras front and back and comes with dual batteries in the tablet and keyboard. A seven-inch Toshiba tablet to be launched in the next few months was also revealed. "It's a really nice device, thin, light with a textured finish in champagne gold... this is Windows in your pocket at an incredibly exciting aggressively competitive price," said corporate vice president for device partnerships, Nick Parker.

He showed the new machines during a keynote speech on the second day of the trade show in Taipei, which runs until Saturday 7th June 2014. Microsoft also announced a partnership with leading free-to-play games developer Kabam whose games will be available on Windows phones and tablets, and that the company's smartphone personal assistant "Cortana" would arrive in China and Britain in customised versions "in the coming months".
