Samsung patents the design of a tablet with... a hole in it?

There’s no way of telling how this hole is supposed to help the tablet offer a better experience. If our readers have suggestions, they shouldn’t hesitate to use the comments section and share them.
Apart from the unusual hole, the new tablet designed by Samsung seems to be pretty normal, having speakers on the sides, and a camera on the back. There might even be a place for an S Pen stylus on one of the sides - which would make this device a Galaxy Note. You can see Samsung’s drawings depicting the tablet, as published by the USPTO, in the slideshow below.

I see commercial and personal use written all over this. The hole, combined with some sort of knob that has a lock built into it could allow this tablet to be easily locked into place on a surface and then removed later with ease, provided you have the key. Could be a wall or any type of flat surface really. The other side of the tablet would be secured in place by some sort of molded piece in the wall that is made to fit this particular tablet. You could replace the molded piece with a different size in the future if you upgraded or downgraded to a different size Samsung Galaxy tablet.

I know people claim that samsung copy's, but this is silly. The hole is the Nook's thing.
