Dell demonstrates convertible netbook/tablet

Posted on Tuesday, September 14 2010 @ 20:29:07 CEST by

Dell showed off the future of the netbook market at the IDF in San Francisco. The company demonstrates a prototype of a 10" netbook that can be converted into a tablet by twisting the device's display:
IDF — The highlight so far of Doug Davis's portion of today's IDF keynote was when a gentleman from the Dell ultra-mobility team took the stage to show off a 10" tablet device based on Atom and running Windows 7 Home Premium. After a quick demo of some touch-enabled apps, he mentioned that tablets lack one key thing for productivity: a keyboard. He then flipped open the device's clam-shell hinge and rotated the screen around inside of the frame—it's not a twist hinge like many tablet PCs, but rotates inside of the bezel itself—to a series of ooh and aahs from the crowd, which hadn't reacted to much else yet. This frame-based design looks to be more rugged than those traditional twist hinges.
