Sony Shows Off VAIO Slider Conceptby Jarred Walton on January 14, 2012 9:34 PM EST
We’ve seen a lot of laptop ideas come and go over the years. One that seems to periodically resurface is the slider, a device that can function as a laptop in normal mode, or it can slide all the way open until the display sits on top of the keyboard and it’s in tablet mode. ASUS had the Eee PC Slider SL101 last year, but they seem to be leaving that behind and going more with the Transformer design for 2012. Sony had their own slider tablet/laptop concept on display at their booth, including a stylus to go along with the device. The hybrid system was behind glass and as a concept there’s no information on the hardware or software running inside the chassis, but for those interested in something other than the standard tablets, let Sony know you like their concept—or not.
