Chip giant Intel has unveiled a sliding-screen hybrid ultrabook dubbed the Letexo during the firm's developer forum in Beijing.
The device is effectively a tablet and a 'slider' ultrabook in a design not too dissimilar to the Asus EeePad Slider. Mooted to run Windows 8, the device can also prop up in front of the keyboard as an all-in-one PC display.
Letexo will, naturally enough, be based on Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge chips - assuming that partners wish to take Intel up on the hybrid design. We expect some will.
The slider hybrid devices from Asus haven't exactly set the world on fire but they've also been based on Android with ARM CPUs. The usage case for a device that transforms into a full fledged Windows 8 PC is, we'd suggest, rather more compelling.
Intel's YouTube channel showed off Letexo in a highlight of day one of the IDF in Beijing (below). Fast-forward to 1:09 or so for the bit about the Letexo.
