The 'Openbook' is a newly designed piece of mobile technology that uses the power of a smartphone to let users access enhanced features as required.

The laptop boasts a full QWERTY keyboard along with storage capabilities thanks to a USB Thumbdrive slot and a microSD card slot, but is free of processors, memory and other accoutrements that you would otherwise find on a laptop. This is because the unit connects to your smartphone to expand the functionality and harness the power of technology that you already own.

The smartphone has become the primary means of connectivity for many users, which has some opting to forego the need for tablets and laptops. This is being acknowledged by new products like the 'Openbook' that boast a low price point and a multifunctional design.
