Microsoft to showcase a 'phone-laptop hybrid' at its Windows 10 event tomorrow
Microsoft will make presenting its new Windows 10 platform a whole-day event tomorrow, and will speak how it shares a common kernel, and will scale up for any device - from 5" smartphones, to tablets, laptops and perhaps even TVs - so that developers can write one app that will work across the whole information and entertainment ecosystem.
To bring the point home, however, it seems that Microsoft is preparing to showcase a form factor we've thought to be long forgotten - a "phone-laptop hybrid." This could very well mean handset with slide-out QWERTY keyboard, geared towards business users, from the type we've seen in droves during the WinMo days, and even in the early days of Android. Naturally, with the advancements in mobile screens and processors, such a device can now be made extremely thin and light, so we can't wait to see what Microsoft has in store for us tomorrow, both on the software, and on the hardware side of things.
