As a laptop (1st mode), the Book V features a 12.5-inch HD IPS touchscreen display, full QWERTY keyboard, a next-gen Intel Core CPU, 1TB HDD, and Windows 8.1. Remove the display from the dock and you got yourself a Windows 8.1 tablet (2nd mode) that sports 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, and a 28Wh battery. As for the smartphone (3rd mode), it packs a 5-inch display, Intel Atom quad-core CPU, 2GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, 8 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front-facing, 2,500mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat.

    Actually I think they can even push for 6 modes if they make the phone run two OS, android and windows mobile.. hey if they can make the tablet and the laptop mode run two OS why not the phone.. btw the phone uses an intel atom processor which I think is compatible with windows mobile, right?

    perhaps they can add another mode where you plug in the keyboard to an external monitor and use it as a standalone windows 8.1 PC without the phone and tablet. other manufacturers are doing this now
