    But no one has really done it in a tablet - and the few laptops with narrow bezels always have one or more sides "too big" for a camera...

    Why can't they adopt this 2013 proto-type that adjusted bezels on the fly (my thinking is they would stay small unless you asked for more bezel):



    Amazing only a FIVE YEAR OLD CONCEPT...:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Maybe there's a patent troll sitting on the technology? Intel itself, asking way too much for the license?

    Guess it could be, but Intel is getting desperate to keep ARM at bay (look - they even adopted AMD for a graphics partner - talk about "dogs and cats living together!"), so I would think they'd do anything to keep using Intel technologies.

    And they let this game changing technology die? I don't get it, is there any con to adopting this?

    Is this any different from the "one-handed use" feature on phablets? Where you swipe to shrink the screen size.

    I don't know if it died; they killed it; or know one cared, but it is a great idea lost to users...

    This is just understating the fact. Again, I’d like to believe there’s a problem with actual implementation or maybe the patent troll thing.

    They should make one with a camera on the backside that you can flip over to the front for Skype or FaceTime.

    That, or even a pop-up, anything but wasting space on the front in the name of selfies...
