Toshiba’s Detachable Display Prototype Notebook

Toshiba has developed a laptop prototype that has a detachable 12.1-inch TFT LCD display that can remain connected to it’s host via 802.11b.

Currently the prototype code named “Toshiba Dynabook SS SX” measures 0.7 inches thick and weighs 1.2 pounds. Don’t expect to see it soon, the display is too bulky and heavy for Toshiba’s liking so futher improvements will have to be made before it hits the mainstream.

Another issue hindering it’s mass production is the battery life. Currently the prototype can only operate for about an hour when the screen is detached from the notebook.

“If users will accept two to three hours of battery life, it’s not so difficult and we can launch it as a product in the next few years,” Says Hajime Yamaguchi, a research scientist at Toshiba’s Advanced Electron Devices Laboratory.

Toshiba has no current plan to commercialize the SS SX, but they expect that it could hit the market in a few years if they brought it’s specifications up to their standards.
