On paper the computer looks like a typical netbook with a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N455 processor, 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, and a 3700mAh battery. But those specs only tell part of the story. Because the computer actually looks like an oversized Nokia N97 smartphone — complete with a slide-out keyboard.
When folded up, the touchscreen display faces up. But when you push the screen back, a keyboard slides out from underneath, much like the keyboards on the Asus Eee Pad Slider or Samsung Sliding Series convertible tablet.
The notebook has an HDMI port, SD card slot, 3 USB ports and an audio jack. The keyboard has an island or chiclet-style layout, with flat keys and a little space between each. There’s also a Lenovo TrackPoint-like button in the center of the keyboard instead of a touchpad.
Shanzhaiben reports that the convertible tablet will sell for around $245 in China. And no, there’s no good explanation for why the computer looks so much like a phone.
