The Windows 10-powered Pyramid Flipper 2-in-1 is ready to enter production

pyramid flipper 2 in 1 design complete eve tech t1 tablet
In March, we reported on Finnish startup Eve Technology’s Pyramid Flipper, a versatile piece of tech that took its inspiration quite literally from people like you. It’s a 2-in-1 device powered by Windows 10 whose design was conceived based entirely on the results of public, online polls.

“Most of the people in the industry say the end user doesn’t know what they want, but actually they do,” Eve CEO Konstantinos told Digital Trends last month. “We ask all kinds of things, what screen it should have, what ports, what kind of material, colors, I mean the whole thing is completely kind of crowd developed and we’re really transparent about our process.”

While the design is now ready to move into the production stages, the company is now seeking a manufacturer to build the Pyramid Flipper tablets en masse. The final specs are as follows:

Display 12 – 12.5-inch LCD IPS 2160×1440 or better
Processor Intel 6th-gen Core M 6YXX Skylake
Graphics Intel HD Graphics
RAM LPDDR3, 8GB or more
Digital Pen Digitizer enabled Pen, 256 pressure levels or more
Storage Solid State Drive (SSD), options: 128GB, 256GB or better
Battery 10 hours or better
Wireless Wi-Fi ac 2×2, WiDi or Miracast wireless streaming, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS
Camera Front: 720p HD auto-focus or better
Audio Stereo speakers or better
Sensors Luminosity, Magnetometer, Gyroscope, Hall Effect, NFC
Ports/Connections 1xUSB 3.1 gen 2 Type A, 1xUSB 2.0 Typa A, 1xUSB 3.1 gen 2 Type C, 1xThunderbolt 3, 1×3.5mm audio, MicroSDXC
Operating System Windows 1o
Size TBA

Some of the specs aren’t final, and as Eve points out in its community forums, “may vary according to market availability, business viability, and eve.community’s voting results.”

As far as the cost is concerned, you can expect the Pyramid Flipper to go for under $1,000, which isn’t bad when you consider the sheer challenge it presents spec-wise to both Microsoft’s Surface Pro and Samsung’s TabPro S lineups.

All that’s left is finding someone to bring it to life, and with alumni from companies like Google, Nokia, Xiaomi, and OnePlus, finding a manufacturer likely won’t pose much of a challenge for Eve.
