A big problem with current UMPCs is the limited screen size that hurdles multi-tasking or prolonged usage. Inspired by the folding fan of the east, F@N is a concept of a powerful UMPC that looks like a normal one screen device but actually has a hidden keyboard and two other screens that can easily be rotated in 360 degrees or even taken out completely whenever you need more computing space. High speed wireless connection keeps them all connected to the mainframe.

Imagine the possibilities, surfing the net on one screen, chatting on MSN on another, playing video on a yet other one. Even giving your friend one screen to watch a movie while you are doing something else.

The design allows customers to decide the number of screens which reduces the cost.
