I have a serious case of â€œI wantâ€ right now. Lenovo leaked photos of a new super-stylish netbook with a touchscreen. Called the 'Pocket Yoga' on a Lenovo Flickr photostream, this is one gorgeous piece of equipment. Comparing the netbook to a purse and sliding it into a pocket raised the â€œI wantâ€ level markedly.
Unfortunately, the Pocket Yoga concept will likely never make it to market as they have stopped working on developments.
Implications - With fast-paced lifestyles continuing to be a regular part of most city-dwelling consumers' lives, there is a shift towards the need for smaller products. Companies who can develop products that are still functional, yet pocket-sized will continue to be favored over larger, less convenient products.
