Displayed at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Novero Solana seeks to combine the comforts of a laptop with the mobility and ease of use of a tablet. Well of course, it is easier said than done, but apparently, the hybrid Solana can handle both jobs efficiently.
When in laptop mode, the Solana runs a Windows 7 installation. The OS promptly changes to Android when the device goes into tablet mode. It sits as a 10-inch laptop where the user could flip the screen blackboard style, flatten the package and go to town with a tablet with the screen’s back sitting snug against the keyboard.
Set to be released in the second quarter of this year, the Solana runs on an Intel dual-core Atom N2600 Cedar Trail processor, has 2 gigs of RAM, can have a SSD of up to 128GB, and weighs around 1.3 kilos.
