The Smartbooks are coming! Quick, the Smartbooks are coming

We called it: Smartbooks. Smartbooks are going to be massiver than massive. And the proof is in the concept pudding.ortho1.JPG

These interesting, if not perfectly polished, concept drawings, highlight the way in which the Smartbook will evolve to fill the gap between Smartphones and Netbooks/Notebooks, and might eventually grow to replace both.Flip.JPG

The drawings produced in partnership with the Savannah College of Art and Design also show the way in which modular production will allow a degree of customization in production, catered to each user’s preferences, not easily possible with current production methods.modules.JPG

If I’m brutally honest, I think some of these drawings, are well, pretty A-level-Design-Technology, but it’s not so much the designs but the concepts behind them which I find exciting.

Sentences like this: “Smartbooks are cloud-computing-centric and characterised by all-day battery life, instant-on functionality and persistent connectivity.” side.JPG

I’ve images of small utilitarian fixed-state HDs operating specifically designed OSs with everything kept in the cloud and streamed seamlessly via uber quick all-covering 4th or 5th generation mobile networks. GBs and GBs of media at my disposal anywhere in the world, on OLED touchscreens with slide-out QWERTYs and intergrated high-lumen pico projectors. Ooh, wow sorry, got a tad giddy. But it is exciting right?
