Anderson netbook is also a book

Here's another concept design from DesignBoom. This gadget is one of those crossover devices. It's not quite a tablet, netbook, or ebook reader, but the design does raise some interesting possibilities.

In general term this is a netbook with unusual dimensions, but what sets it apart is a pivot hinge. The screen and keyboard are connected at just the one point - at the corner. This lets the user rotate the screen so it is behind or beside the keyboard.

That hinge is a structural weakness, so we're probably never going to see this device. But it would be nice to have the option of having the screen in 2 different positions.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
