ICE Computer flaunts Trinity hybrid tablet concept

By Chris Cook - Jun 1, 2011

New tablets are starting to emerge with a slight difference from the ones we have previously seen such as the iPad. The ASUS Padfone is an example of the new hybrid devices that are surfacing, a device that combines a tablet design with a smartphone dock.

Another tablet like this has appeared at the Computex 2011 event, ICE Computer’s Trinity concept tablet. Like the Padfone it allows for the docking of a smartphone or even a PC module. Product Manager at ICE Jaryson Wu says the company has been working on the design for a while.

Despite this they were still unable to showcase a working model which is the same problem ASUS had. The idea of the hybrid tablet is slot in your smartphone or PC module and you have a working touchscreen tablet.

The tablet also features an upgradable core, additional internal storage and it is thought that ICE will also add USB 3.0 ports. There is no word of a release date as of yet but in the meantime you can see a video of the Trinity tablet at the Engadget website by clicking the link.

Do these hybrid tablet designs appeal to you?
