Quick Starter, which you can place at the top or bottom of the screen, is a dock that would be superfluous except that it brings back something Microsoft took away: the Start Menu

The dock might be heavier if it included a secondary battery, but it doesn’t. Other than a keyboard and touchpad, the only thing the dock adds are two extra USB 2.0 ports.

Samsung's new mobile hybrid notebook

SAMSUNG has launched a new HD hybrid notebook tablet with built-in 4GLTE mobile internet.

Aimed primarily at mobile professionals, the 11.6-inch notebook has a fully-detachable keyboard, so that the computer can be used as a lightweight Windows tablet.

The device is sold with a keyboard dock that allows individuals to use the machine like a notebook, a pressure-sensitive digital pen for writing or drawing and a full HD display.

It weighs less than 2kg, offers 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD hard disk, meaning that boot-up and shut-down times are cut to a minimum, while operating speed is optimised.

The ATIV 700T can be equipped with support for AT&T's 4G LTE, which was notably absent on older models and made the hybrid device less suitable for business customers who are frequently on the move.

For customers looking for a Windows 8 tablet with good performance, long battery life, and a dock that turns it into a laptop, the Smart PC Pro should be on the top of your list

The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Asus Padfone brings a range of new features to the device, including a number of performance enhancements from Asus.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 gets its name because of the ability to bend in order to suit your position. This smart device can be used as a laptop and tablet.

Samsung's other revolutionary products

The phone, which is a nameless prototype, has a screen that falls off towards the rear edge of the device on the right side. The phone certainly feels like a prototype.

Samsung has confirmed that they're making a smart watch of their own too in the near future. There has been no details given on how the watch will look like or what will it run on (Android perhaps?).
