Tablet technology to look forward to in 2013

Over the course of the last year we have quite a few innovative designs and inventions by all the major touchscreen manufacturers. Google has recently released its nexus range, apple has recently released the seventh version of its IOS, Microsoft has only recently released the surface and is already making major upgrades with its release of windows 8.1.

When it comes to looking into the future however we can get quite excited at what is due to be released. After the release of the Sony Xperia Z, the first completely water proof phone, we are now starting to see outlets offer services that spray your smart phone in an intricately designed nano layer that can be sprayed on to the phone within one hour. Although this does break down when in contact with water it can make the device survive any unwanted spills or drops into puddles.

A small start-up company based in Freemont California is currently developing a technology that will revolutionize how tablets are used for working on the go. This technology can be integrated into any tablet device. The touchscreen is replaced by a slightly flexible layer, and then when required by the OS, small buttons rise up from the circuitry and make impressions on the screen. These can then be pushed like real buttons making typing on tablets a lot easier than it currently is.

Another technology made by Samsung which is due to be released in late 2013 is a phone that is made out of flexible plastic. Although it was believed to be used in the S4 and never was, this device will allow for mobile phones to be flexible and therefore withstand damage.
