The chipmaker Freescale is showing off prototypes of 'smartbook' devices at the Computex show in Taiwan.
Smartbooks "fill the gap between smaller-screened smartphones and traditional, PC-like netbook or notebook products", Freescale said in a statement on Tuesday.
Freescale's smartbook prototypes were developed in partnership with the Savannah College of Art and Design.
The manufacturer and the design school worked together to "explore requirements related to ergonomic issues, user interfaces, alternative form factors and even accessories for next-generation smartbook devices", Freescale said.
