All-in-one PCs have become quite popular lately, with their shipments consistently growing at a faster rate than that of run-of-the-mill desktop PCs. Despite the impressive growth, vendors don’t seem content with just Windows-based AIOs and have now started experimenting with the form factor. AsusTek’s Transformer all-in-one PC, which dual boots Windows 8 and Android, is a case in point. Then there is the far more unusual Viewsonic VCD22, a 22-inch device that runs Android 4.0 and lacks a battery. But if you think that the VCD22 is the only device of its kind, you’re wrong. Japanese company Kouziro is readying a similar Android-powered AIO/display.
Kouziro’s FT103 is an Android-powered touch-screen monstrosity. It has a 21.5-inch touch-screen display (1080p), 1GHz TI OMAP 4428 processor, 8GB storage, two USB 2.0 ports, microUSB, microSD card slot, HDMI, Ethernet, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, microphone, headphone jack and webcam. The battery-less FT103 tips the scales at around 11 pounds and measures 512.8 × 24.8 × 353mm. It is set to debut in Japan later this month with a price tag of around $437 (¥34,800).
