Are you getting a little bored by the designs (or the lack of it) in phones and tablets - one single slab of body with a screen on top? It seems all we can do is to equip it with better and better specs and softwares. Where are the hardware innovations?
I believe there are rooms for hardware design innovations in mobile devices. By doing so, we can create devices that will suit our needs even more than existing phones and tablets.
OK, here is the idea:
Put a 7" screen on a 5" phone.
Why do that? Because:
5" size = Portability. It can be easily slip into your pocket;
7" screen = FUN. It is the optimal size for reading books, surfing web and watching videos with one hand!
So, 5" phone + 7" screen in one device = The ultimate on-the-go mobile device you will ever need!
Now you can enjoy your tablet everywhere without the need to carry a bag. Guys, isn't that sweet?!
If you just want to make calls, texting, and check emails, simply use it in 5" mode.
But if you want better web and media viewing experiences, it can be immediately turned into a tablet with one magical 7'' screen !
NO annoying bezel blocking the screen like those in Kyocera Echo and Sony tablet P;
NO detachable parts like Asus Padfones (No need to carry two things!);
We DO NOT need flexible screens to achieve this!
According to our design, this smartphone/tablet fusion is quite feasible. In fact we are very surprised that until now no company has ever created such a device!
Since no one is making such a device, we have decided to make it ourselves, for everyone out there who want true innovation.
Support us if you think we need more innovation in the mobile hardware market!
What We Need & What You Get
Since our startup is only at the beginning stage, we need quite an amount of funding to get things right. Rest assured that every penny raised will be used into making the quality product that you have longed for.
The estimated funding we will need is about USD200,000.
Majority of the fund raised will be used for the following purpose:
1) Purchase of necessary equipments and materials for prototyping;
2) Manufacturing cost;
3) Other necessary fees such as coffee.
Other Ways You Can Help
