iPad Surface Design

Be honest, did it not cross your mind that what if iPad was the one with an integrated keyboard and not the Microsoft Surface? Well it did cross designer Luis Fonseca’s mind and apparently much before the Surface was revealed. So this is his take on the iPad 4 with all its innovations. He predicts a built-in keyboard, Bang & Olufsen speakers, 12-megapixel-1080p camera, and an aluminum frame. His idea is to design a complete laptop replacement and not just a tablet overhaul.

The keyboard slides out from the bottom and it comes with a portable hard disk, quad core CPU and an 7 to 8 inch display. As far as concepts go, this one is quite good for the iPad, but you never know with the design team, Jony Ive and Job’s spirit guidance. This may as well not be the direction that Apple takes!

  • The surface doesnt have an integrated keyboard, its a cover/keyboard attachment that connects magnetically. This design is over the top and unrealistic.

  • design ??! says:

    seriously guys! definitely not an Apple design! Even someone who thinks that the design is limited to making a nice 3D rendering.

    umm… “His idea is to design a complete laptop replacement and not just a tablet overhaul.”

    should be… “Microsoft’s idea was to design a complete laptop replacement and not just a tablet overhaul.”

    Not really *his* idea if he is just putting the same concept in a different look.

  • SamDS says:

    Its a reality right now.

    his deign is displeasing and the information that he has given you is misleading to say the least.
