LG Slide Concept Phone With Rollout Tablet Screen

Jason Betty designed the LG Slide Phone as a concept design that basically combines your small cell phone with a larger sized netbook computer. Although this has done before, I have to admit that this concept looks a lot cooler than what we have seen in the past.

The LG Slide phone is not only sleek and lightweight, but it’s so thin it can fit in an ordinary wallet. If this concept ever made it to production, it would allow users to seamlessly use and send documents that have already been stored to their cellphone, but with the ability to roll out a paper thin keyboard.

Does The Future Of Elegant Tablets Give Stiff Competition For Apple?

I remember when tablets first came out years back, I would talk about them to people who’ve never heard of the term, and I would explain it as a digital notepad. It’s really something to see how tablets have evolved since birth.

We’ve even seen an interesting type of tablet hybrid, dubbed a convertible. Tablet hybrids are great because they offer users a physical keyboard to get any heavy typing or work done in an efficient manner.

ThinkPad + IdeaPad Tablets, On The Way

Lenovo’s president, Rory Read has officially announced in an interview that IdeaPad and ThinkPad tablets will hit markets later this year. Consumers can expect both tablets to rock 10″ screens, come with Android Honeycomb, and cost between $450 and….gulp….$900.

The IdeaPad K1 will ship out next month, with the professional-oriented ThinkPad tablet coming this August. I suppose IBM wanted to throw down two Windows 7 tablets before it was “too late” with Windows 8 expected to arrive next year.

Asus Lamborghini VX6S Unveiled At Computex

Netbook Live has recently spotted the Asus Lamborghini-themed Eee PC VX6 at the Computex show in Taipei. The Asus netbook sports a brand new Atom NM10 CPU and offers full support for AMD Radeon HD 6470M graphics, rather than the Intel Atom D525 and Nvidia’s ION graphics (as on the previous generation VX6).

Now don’t start thinking there is a processor called the Atom NM10, that’s just a nickname for Intel’s chipset, manufactured for the Intel Atom D510 and D410 processors. The shiny “Lamborghini” carries a glossy 12.1″ display, and offers connectivity for Bluetooth, Wireless N, and features a 500GB hard drive.

SanDisk Kicks Off 100-Series SSDs

Don’t think that Computex is a show only about computers. SanDisk proved otherwise when the company introduced a few flash-based storage solutions, designed for mobile devices and ultraportable laptops. First up, we’ve got the SanDisk U100, a SATA III card that gives thin and light notebooks a run for their money (closer speeds to desktop SSDs)! These new SATA III cards can read/write at speeds of up to 450MB/s and 340MB/s, respectively.

Desktop Power In Tablet Form Factor, Meet The S1080

The computer show, Computex, has already demonstrated some awesome new gadgets in the world of tech. Gigabyte is a computer component manufacturer, well known for their motherboards. It looks like the company is taking the tablet road in releasing its new tablet device called the S1080.

The device is powered by Windows 7, runs an Intel Atom N550 1.66GHz dual-core processor and has enough RAM to satisfy your basic computing needs. By ‘enough’, of course we are talking about 2GB of RAM. If you’re one of those types who loves to download, you’ll be happy to know that this baby comes packed with a 320GB hard drive.

Intel Keeley Lake Convertible On Its Way

Rather than waiting for Computex to launch, Intel decided to show off a new concept tablet/netbook hybrid. The concept convertible is called Keeley Lake and has a much thinner frame and shaped t and shape, allowing the fold in the design to not appear while closed.

We don’t have the full scoop on this convertible but we do know that it will use an Oak Trail Atom processor. The Atom Z670 will carry 1.5GHz of computing power and allow viewers to enjoy 1080p video.

Fujitsu Lifebook TH Series W/ Oaktrail

Fujitsu has just launched the Lifebook TH series and it looks awesome! The Lifebook TH carries a 10.1″ 1024 x 600 capacitive touch display, powered with a brand new Oaktrail Z670 processor, identical to make of the upcoming tablets hitting the market. If you don’t know anything about processors, you have my permission to think “Oak trees and Trail mix.” Now, the design is simply beautiful, I’m a big fan of the wide black border around the display, and the way it slides out and tilts like that.

HP Introduces 3 Hot New Laptops

It looks like HP is rolling out new products left and right. After just announcing the company’s ultrathin display and new flexible data plan, it seems like HP has just a few more tricks up its sleeve. The first of HPs new notebooks is the HP ProBook 5330m which was built to be used by business professionals and comes with a 13.3″ HD display, and gives users a choice between Intel Core i3 or Core i5 processors.

Clearly, portability is key in this model and HP realizes that a netbook is not the solution for intense work-related computing. Consumers will be able to purchase this aluminum notebook with a backlit keyboard, immediately.

Samsung Series 7 Convertible In The Flesh

Samsung will launch its Series 7 convertible (tablet/notebook hybrid) later this year. The convertible was shown at CES 2011 in Las Vegas earlier this year. The beautiful device features a sliding keyboard with a tilt screen, all packed in a super slim chassis. The product was briefly displayed on Amazon.com before getting pulled, and we were able to extract a few details from the webpage.

The convertible will definitely carry 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal SSD storage space, but we do not have any information yet on other hardware components, such as processing power and graphics.
