Shine Pocket Computer Merges Phone and PC in a Way Unlike the iPad

A problem arose when consumers found themselves with a laptop and a smartphone and craved an intermediate technology, and the Shine Pocket Computer offers all required capabilities within that transitional spectrum.

Khaydarov Alexander suggests a user-friendly touchscreen tablet that boasts a tangible retractable keyboard. Users may find this infinitely easier for typing compared to its iPad cousins. A practical radial menu of functions is presented, allowing one to access everything from the internet and messages to a media player and camera.

The dimensions of the Shine Pocket Computer permit a sufficient-sized display screen for watching videos and viewing pictures. Despite its built-in keypad, the device carries no bulk, remaining streamlined and lightweight. Existing only as a concept, this is one gadget that would do very well on the market if it ever progresses to manufacturing.
