At the If Design Awards at this year’s CeBIT convention was shown something really interisting. This “Data Center Communications Vision of the Future Server” for HP looks to be a Pocket PC / hybrid with a slideout QWERTY keyboard, and touchscreen display of the huge size. Essentially, this device is intended to interface with HP servers and data centers rather than be delivered to the market, as it even touts RFID / Bluetooth connectivity options to assist administrators in resolving outstanding issues sans wires.
It maybe a bit more than a rumor, but it sure is quite interesting. Watch the news.
