December release still possible, but further delay not ruled out.
Asus' Taichi tablet, the dual-screen, Windows 8-powered ultrabook hybrid, has been delayed by the manufacturer for the second time.
An Asus spokesperson confirmed the delay to PCWorld, but the firm said said the device may launch within the United States sometime during. That said, a further delay hasn't been ruled out yet.
Initially, the tablet/ultrabook hybrid was scheduled for a launch during the latter stages of October to coincide with the release of Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 8.
No reason for the delay itself was given by Asus, with several U.S.-based retailers having stopped taking pre-orders for the product.
The Taichi appears to be an ultrabook at first glance, but a second screen has been placed on the lid. When it's closed, it doubles as a tablet, with two users being able to utilize the device at the same time. Both of the screens boast a HD resolution, accompanied by 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.
