Always Innovating has release their next “version” of the Touch Book,named Always Innovating Smart Book. The company has given its Touch Book device a hardware refresh, dubbing it the Smart Book this time around.
The New Smart Book features a netbook, but features a detachable display which can function as a tablet, a MID (Mobile Internet Device), a free VOIP phone, a PC dual screen, and can runs on home-made AIOS, Ubuntu, Chrome or Google Android.
The Innovating Smart Book is a super computer that can be used in either slate or laptop form, but unlike older tablets you don’t simply twist the screen and fold it down over the keyboard. Instead you can actually remove the slate portion of the machine from the keyboard and carry it with you, leaving the keyboard (and an extra battery) behind.
The Smart Book also has outstanding battery life with a new design of battery circuitry, the Smart Book offers a never-seen-before battery experience, and can also transfer energy from one battery to another. There are three separate batteries in the device, including a 12000mAh battery in the keyboard, while the tablet gets a 6000mAh battery, and the Mini Book MID offers a 1500mAh model.
The Always Innovating Smart Book powered by ARM Texas Instruments cortex-A8 with video and 3D acceleration, an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive touchscreen display, Numonyx 512MB RAM + 256 MB NAND, 8GB microSD card storage, accelerometer and runs Ubuntu, Android and eventually Google Chrome OS. The Smart Book measures 9.7 x 7.0 x 1.3 inches and Weighs in at 3 pounds.
The company is said to switch between multiple Linux-based operating systems at the touch of a button. All the operating systems are claimed to run side-by-side, at the same time, by just pressing the button, users can switch between our home-made AIOS, Ubuntu, Android and eventually Google Chrome OS.
There are also 4 USB ports including 2 inside the case, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, HDMI (720p HD video), and The supplied DisplayLink adapter, which is touted as “the tiniest USB-to-HDMI adapter ever,” can be used at other times to connect a PC to an HDTV, the company adds.
