Google gets patent for mobile similar to the hybrid or convertible
And just like that, without much noise in between, Google has patented something similar to hybrid or convertible notebooks , those who have admired for a long time and certainly will come in October this year at the hands of Windows 8 , as there at least 40 models who are being prepared with touch screens and could fall into this category.
These devices stand out as a mixture of a tablet with a notebook, as we have seen in the MSI S20 Slider , and are reflected quite well in the patent that Google got in the U.S., which includes several other images showing the device in different positions.
Undoubtedly, this will serve as basis for two things: first, that the company debuts its own hybrid model as a reference, perhaps under the Nexus product line. On the other hand, is a good tool for any manufacturer to launch lawsuits to try to make something like a convertible, either to remove them from the market, obtaining financial compensation or negotiate with the companies concerned a truce by other existing legal disputes .
