[MWC 2017] Porsche Design might be a name familiar to some of you, where in the past the company has collaborated with the likes of BlackBerry to create Porsche Design BlackBerry smartphones. Recently Porsche Design also teamed up with Huawei for a special version of the Huawei Watch 2, and now it looks like they’re applying their design philosophy to tablets.
Announced at MWC 2017, Porsche Design took the wraps off a 2-in-1 Windows 10 convertible. For those unfamiliar with convertibles, basically these are tablet/laptop hybrids where thanks to either a swiveling display or a detachable keyboard, it can be switched from laptop mode to tablet mode in an instant.
Dubbed the Porsche Design BOOK ONE, the device will feature a 7th-gen Intel Core i7-7500U processor that is clocked at 3.5GHz. It will also come with a whopping 16GB of RAM, an Intel SSD with 512GB of storage, 2x USB-C ports, 2x USB 3.0 ports, and 1x USB 3.1 Type-C/Thunderbolt 3 port.
It also comes with a 13.3-inch QHD+ 3200×1800 display, a 5MP front-facing camera that works with facial recognition with Windows Hello, and since this runs on Windows 10, expect support for Cortana as well. Unsurprisingly this device does not come cheap as it is priced at $2,495 and will be going on sale in April 2017.
