Samsung Designs Bendable Smartphone Displays

Bendable Smartphone displays At a reccent analyst day, (held in South Korea,) Samsung announced plans to design bendable Smartphone displays. The corporation presented a prototype (pictured below,) and stated that it expects these phones to be available for purchase next year. Bendable displays  The details As well as designing a new form of bendable display, Samsung also has plans to increase the quality of its current phone screens: 2015 may well see Smartphones with resolutions as high as 3840x2160. Samsung also used the day to discuss current (and future) business strategies. These discussions, (centred on the creation of bendable displays,) come a month after the corporation unveiled the Galaxy Round, (complete with curved screen, as pictured below.) Though bendable phone displays are not a new concept, major companies such as Apple have struggled to design equally flexible inner components for such devices. In that vein, Samsung have been working on the design (and development) of sufficiently bendy batteries.

What Will the Computers of the Future Look Like?

What can we expect from the computers of the future?  What will the computers of the future look like? Recent reports suggest that tablets will outsell traditional laptops by 2015, but, various commentators have suggested that classic computer designs are efficient, effective and, thus, here to stay. What with the recent advancements that have brought us Google Glass, perhaps the computers of the future will interact, (in an increasingly intimate manner,) with their human users.  Present inventions that point to the future The Tobii Rex Peripheral The Tobii Rex Peripheral, allows users to navigate around Windows 8 simply by looking at the areas of the screen they would, ordinarily, move their mouse to.   The Leap Motion Controller The Leap Motion Controller allows users to control their computers through simple gestures: to illustrate, a mere move of the fingers allows you to look through pictures and photos.

Dell Reports Drastic Profit Drop: Will Tablets continue to Outperform Traditional Laptops?

Is Dell's drop in profits indicative of the the death of traditional laptops?  Yesterday one of the world’s leading laptop manufacturers, Dell, reported a 79% drop in their profits for the first quarter of the financial year. Dell’s experience stands in stark contrast to that of key tablet manufacturers, (among them Apple and Samsung.) As IDC, (a global provider of market information) notes, shipments of tablet devices have continued to surge, totalling 49.2 million units in the first quarter of 2013. (http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS24093213 ) Dell has been attempting to compensate for its poor performance in the computer market by providing its customers with other products such as business software and hardware for servers. The future of the laptop industry   Traditional laptops vs. tablets   Is Dell's attempt to branch out into other services a sign of the future? Despite the recent development of a broad variety of hybrid laptops by a number of key manufacturers, (including Dell,) the future of the laptop industry seems less than certain. Will traditional laptops soon be devices from a forgotten era? Does the future belong to the tablet and touchscreen technology? Are we witnessing the end of one age and the beginning of another? Analysts suggest that one of the only ways key laptop manufacturers will be able to compete with  tablet devices is by designing an affordable, easily portable machine with excellent all round specifications.If such a product were to appear, perhaps the computer industry could be reenergized. Which do you prefer: the traditional laptop or the tablet?

New Gadget Which Transforms Smartphone Into Laptop

John Andrus invents a device that turns a smartphone into a laptop  Edmonton businessman John Andrus has invented a device called the Casetop which allows users to transform their smartphone, temporarily, into a fully operational laptop. Though still raising funds for the device’s mass production, and continuing with his job as a network administrator, Andrus is adamant that his invention will represent a new step in computing technology. About the Casetop  The invention in detail Markedly smaller than a Macbook, the Casetop comes equipped with an 11.1 inch HD screen and a full size keyboard, (for those who find it difficult to navigate around a small smartphone screen.) On its front is a bar in which can be placed any model of smartphone; the mobile acting as the laptop’s information centre.The Casebook is also equipped with a 56 watt battery which charges the connected smartphone whilst the device as a whole is being used.    Andrus' future plans Having produced a prototype, Andrus is now attempting to raise money to have the Casetop mass produced. In a bid to raise the necessary funds, he is utilising Kick-starter, an online organisation which allows people to invest in businesses of their choosing in exchange for merchandise rather than financial shares. Should this method of fundraising prove successful, Livi Design, (Andrus’ technology firm,) will approach Chinese manufacturers.

New Apple Patent Reveals Hybrid Laptop

Are Apple developing a hybrid laptop? Recently, a new patent by Apple has appeared on the internet which provides details of a hybrid machine, part laptop, part touch-screen tablet. Drawings indicate that the touch screen, (as in other present hybrid machines,) would be detachable, drawing its charge from a wireless system in the laptop’s hinge.  Will Apple maunfacture this new model? Patent: new design or innovative idea?   Though interesting designs, the jury is still out as to whether these drawings are indicative of a future Apple product or whether they are merely representative of countless innovative ideas floating around Apple HQ. Various sources suggest that Apple has stated on numerous occasions that it is not particularly fond of the inclusion of touch screen technology within laptops. Perhaps such statements provide further evidence that these designs represent just one more peripheral idea rather than concrete proof of the company’s future plans. At present, the question remains: have Apple changed their minds, or is this just one more innovative idea that will never be realized?
