The Intel Developer’s Forum (IDF) is getting in full swing today and new products and concepts are starting to leak out.  Sierra Modro of GottaBeMobile is there and she sends word of a new concept Tablet PC by Intel that looks absolutely dynamite.  If you crossed the hybrid nature of the HP tc1100 Tablet with the siding/ tilt keyboard of the HTC Shift you’d have the closest approximation of the Intel UrbanMax.  The UrbanMax looks like a 10 or 12-inch slate with a screen that slides up to expose a full keyboard and it looks pretty darn cool.  It’s just a concept but hopefullly Intel can convince some OEMs (listening, HP?) to produce one.  Full info and photos at GBM.

  1. Good luck getting that sliding hinge repaired if it breaks, or heaven forbid, the guy sitting in front of you on a plane decides to suddenly recline…

    I would prefer the swivel hinge design of normal tablet pc’s.

    Give it a decent dual core processor and you can sign me up now!

  3. I believe a perfect one by Improve TC1100:
    1) higher screen resolution
    2) Thinner
    3) dual core

  4. it looks cool but what is the actual functional advantage if this type of design?
