    Here’s hoping that Asus Wearable will be compatible with the Asus Transformer Book V. But the real issue here is that nearly 3 months later, Asus have still made no announcements regarding the availability of the Transformer Book V! Meanwhile, it’s competitors are surpassing its specs and getting products on the shelves. It’s all well and good announcing a fantastic product, but it needs to follow through. I hope they announce compatibility and a release date at the Asus presentation at IFA 2014.
