I think many of us suffer from gadget-itis, a case where we have way too many mobile devices. The primary symptom is having too much digital content spread out over a laptop, tablet, and mobile phone.
Often, none of these devices are synced, so it is difficult to find what file we need at the right time. Fortunately, this Smart Book hopes to end that.
I have a video after the jump of a man showing how it works. The notebook has a detachable screen that can be used as a tablet, and the tablet has a detachable mobile device that can be used as a phone.
It certainly isn’t like anything I have ever seen before, especially with its slot that stores a 2GB USB dongle. That alone could sell me. If all of these parts add up to a greater whole and sync together easily, then I am totally sold.
As for internal specs, this has an ARM Cortex-A8 CPU with 512MB of RAM. As for storage, it has 256MB of NAND flash and an 8GB microSD card of storage. It also has 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, and could have an OS of Ubuntu, Android, and possibly Google Chrome OS.
Smart Book isn’t ready for shipping as yet, but pre-orders can be taken at $549 for the whole thing and $199 per individual component. If you ask me, a multifaceted device like this could be the way of the mobile future.
