Samsung design patent reveals a tablet with a hole in it
Patent filings often reveal the quirky form factors manufacturers are working on, like a tablet with curved margins. The latest patent filing from the South Korean manufacturer features a Galaxy Tab-like tablet with a unique design twist: The device in question has a prominent hole in the bottom right corner. There is no indication as to what this might be sued for, but other than that, the tablet seems to feature fairly standard hardware. There is a camera at the back, speakers on the sides and the provision for a stylus on one of the sides, which could mean that this tablet might be offered in the Galaxy Note series.
There is no way to know whether Samsung will actually launch such a device in the near future. Do you have any theories as to the function the unique design serves? What would be a good name for the tablet? Sound off in the comments below.
