Tablets seem to fit into a certain size category, between 7 to 10 inches, but it seems that one company has plans to build a much larger tablet, Lenovo are looking to build a 23 inch tablet. Senior marketing specialist William Cai tells TechRadar that the massive device won’t be designated for the corporate market only, and will be available to your very own living room – provided you want it there.
We think that there is potential for a 23-inch tablet. We’d have to take care of battery life and we are working to get the weight down.
It’s obviously not for full mobility use, but it could be moved from room to room in the house and used with a full keyboard, or as a television. Or you could lay it on a table top and use it for family games.
We’re hoping that we can launch it later this year.
Sounds a lot like Microsoft’s Surface to us. The 30-inch Surface was introduced in 2007, largely as a product for businesses and the retail world. It also came with a $5,000 to $10,000 price tag. It’s undergone some renovations since its debut (including improved touch performance thanks to its adoption of a camera-driven interface), and according to Microsoft’s site, will be available for purchase in 2011.
