Silicon Valley, CA, December 12, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Idealfuture announced today that its If Convertible will be available for delivery in July 2014. The transforming If Convertible, flips from a dual-display ultrabook into a tablet and back again, with one screen that also detaches to become a smartphone. The device features a unique transforming architecture that allows it to fold closed to travel as small as possible yet unfolds to provide a computing environment akin to a much larger device.
Idealfuture’s founder and creator, Jeff Batio, developed and patented the idea behind the If Convertible and has nurtured the company for several years. During this time, Batio defined the product specs, built prototypes and has now begun launching his vision to the world through the crowdfunding site indiegogo where it is available for pre-order.
Jeff Batio sees the launch as more than just funding for manufacturing. “I’m excited to access the power of crowd and hear the collective voice of the individual,” said Batio. His vision is not business as usual, but rather an alternative to the sameness of the current computing landscape. “I believe that when our ideas are combined with the input of the people, the If Convertible and Idealfuture, will become the most personalized, personal-computer/company in the world.”
The If Convertible will allow people to have full control over their digital lives, without having to endure the frustration and extra cost of buying three separate devices. Uniting the computing technologies that people use daily, the multi-display If Convertible when unfolded, features a full-size keyboard and makes it easier to work, play, and communicate like never before.
Batio has never given up or waivered in his commitment to bring his vision of the convergent mobile future to the world. The idea for the If Convertible was developed during his time as Founder and CEO of Xentex. Despite the fact that his original product, the Xentex Flip-Pad Voyager was derailed, he feels that the timing is ideal for the future to now be transformed. “Ten years later, with the advances in mobile computing technology, the If Convertible is truly the right product at the right time,” said Batio. “We look forward to impacting the mobile computing landscape by developing truly personalized devices that increase productivity while simplifying lives.”
By combining 3 devices, 2 screens and a single data plan, this compact and powerful device folds to fit in the palm of your hand so that you can travel small, but unfolds so you can work and play big.
