The concept’s quite cool – it looks like a normal laptop when closed, but when you open it, you can split the keyboard in two to reveal a second screen, and presumably a whole lot of crumbs and other general ickiness. The second screen can then be used as a touchscreen for any supporting applications.
I can think of several applications for this, but most of them involve graphic design of some sort, and I’m sure that none of the designers I know would be caught dead with something that looks like this. That said, when the competition looks like this, designers don’t have a lot of choice, so might just stick with their seperate tablets.
This design isn’t available yet – the makers are shopping it around to OEMs, and if you’re interested, I’m sure they’d happily sell you the patents involved.
