Microsoft took the opportunity to showcase a range of new Windows 10 devices from its hardware partners during its keynote at Computex 2015 today.
Nick Parker (pictured), corporate vice president of Microsoft’s OEM division, highlighted an array of devices, some never before seen, designed for Windows 10 – which will be globally available on 29 July – including PCs from Acer, Asus, Dell, HP and Toshiba.
On show publically for the first time was the Dell XPS 15, which is optimised for Windows 10 and features the same virtually borderless InfinityEdge display that made its predecessor, the XPS 13, an industry leader.
Also being demonstrated was a range of new devices from Asus, a new all-in-one PC from Acer – the Z3-710, two new devices from HP – the x2 two-in-one and a new tablet, and a PC from Toshiba that supports Windows Hello.
Parker also unveiled two new PC form factors. The FoxConn Kangaroo is a portable desktop PC that turns your TV into a full Windows PC. It comes with a fingerprint reader to support Windows Hello and provides up to six hours of battery life. And the Quanta Compute Plug is a mini-PC in a power adapter instead of a stick. Plugged into the HDMI port, it turns a TV into a smart computer and enables users to control their TV using Cortana via Bluetooth remote or headset.
Visitors to Computex Taipei this week can view the new Windows 10 devices on the Microsoft booth located in Nangang Exhibition Hall 4F, Area L, booth 0110.
They will also have the opportunity to see the new ruggedised TZ1000 transportation tracking device from Toshiba, which has been developed as part of a collaboration with Microsoft to create new internet of things solutions.
