Sony Vaio Flip shows off its hinges in hands-on video
Why put up with just a tablet or a laptop when you can have both?
This is the Sony Vaio Flip, and it's the company's new attempt to creating a tablet-laptop hybrid.
It's on show here at the IFA 2013 trade show in Berlin, so let's take a look.
So, like most of these hybrid devices, the Flip looks just like a laptop at first.
However, it has two hinges on it.
There's one hinge here in the traditional laptop hinge location,
and a second in the middle, halfway up the screen right here.
Now, what you can do, you slide this switch to the release position, and then you flip the screen in the middle, and you can use that to twist the device into a tablet.
Sony's Vaio devices often have quite a nice design, and this one looks pretty good as well.
I really like this brushed metal effect here and the way that that carries on to the inside over the wrist rest.
One minor criticism could be that when it's in tablet mode, it doesn't quite
It's in a very slight angle.
How annoying that is, we'll have to wait and see.
The Flip is going to be known as the Fit multi-flip in Europe.
It should be coming out this year.
Let me know what you think, and please check out CNET.com/IFA for much more.
