The Latest Gadget Coming to an Electronics Store Near You – the Fujitsu Lifebook 2013

Do you have a digital camera? Do you have a laptop? Do you have a tablet? What about a smartphone? What if you could combine all of these devices in a single package but remove any of them when you need only one? That’s the concept behind the Fujitsu Lifebook 2013.
It combines a laptop, tablet, phone and camera. Each device when in place in the laptop extends its functionality. For example the phone serves as a telephone, mobile modem and videoconferencing tool. The digital camera is the webcam. The tablet plugs in to become a touch screen QWERTY keyboard or game controller. When any component is unplugged it functions on its own. When plugged in all data, images and functionality are collectively shared. When plugged into the laptop all devices recharge. The picture below gives you a better idea of how the components integrate. No price announced as of yet.
