Japanese hardware and IT specialists Fujitsu recently held the Fujitsu 2011 Design Contest, and Taiwan-based designer Hao-Chun Huang took home the award with his Fujitsu Flexbook concept.

This unique design combines the ease of a tablet with the productivity of a netbook, all in a compact and convenient storage solution. The Fujitsu Flexbook lives up to its name, as it features a folding keyboard and screen. The Flexbook can fold up into a square when not in use to give the user extra portability and protection.

The Fujitsu Flexbook is also said to be waterproof but it will have to be tested once the design is complete. The combination of a tablet and netbook may just be the future of how we compute.
