Acer Launches its latest Folding Ultrabook Laptop Aspire R7 ,

Acer Announces Weird Folding Laptop With The Trackpad In The Wrong Place - 


Acer announced a new  laptop that looks more liker a startship and less like a computing device 
 the  Aspire R7 .The ultra book  R7 is a bizarre hybrid of laptop, desktop, and tablet that flips and folds its way out of and into each category. It’s essentially a portable, multi-touch all-in-one PC.

The R7, which starts at $1,000, comes with a 15.6-inch HD touchscreen display, which, along with its trademark “Ezel” hinge, pretty severely limits it in the portability category. The  Aspire R7   goes on sale  on May 17 ,2013


One of the innovations of this laptop is its Ezel hinge design. The Ezel hinge is a flexible strip anchoring the display, and allows the display to sit vertically on the base, lie flat over it, or be flipped 180 degrees to float over the keyboard in "Ezel" mode. 


 The laptop also features an auto-reverse audio interface that moves the sound in whatever way the screen is oriented. The screen itself is an IPS (In-Plane Switching) display with a 1,920-by-1,080 resolution and 10-finger touch functionality

15% of Online Sales to come from Mobile Devices by 2016






In 2013, 15% of all sales i
s expected to come from mobile devices, with tablets alone accounting for a dominant 9% of this pie. By 2016, tablets alone will account for a significant 17% of all sales

Forrester: Mobile Commerce to Quadruple to $31 Billion in Next 5 Years: "Sales of physical retail goods and services made on smartphones were $8 billion in the U.S. last year, accounting for 3% of online sales and less than 1% of total retail sales. (Those numbers have been driven up by Amazon and eBay, which have mobile sales in the billions, per Forrester's estimates.) For most U.S. retailers, mobile represents only 1.5% of online sales. Over the next five years, total mobile sales are expected to grow 33% annually to $31 billion, making up 9% of online sales in 2017."

The overall mobile commerce spending, including both tablets and smartphones, in 2012 was $24.66 billion, and this figure represented an 81% increase from the 2011 figures. That’s quite a staggering number.
