Samsung Attempts To Patent Hot Pants Tablet

I may be the only person in the world who calls this kind of thing a hot pants device, but I’m never going to stop. You know, hot pants, with the zipper in the back? These gadgets have the controls in the back. But why? You’d have to ask Samsung — or Apple; they submitted a patent for this kind of thing about a year ago.

My question regarding these pictures is: how is the user holding the device? If you’re holding it by the screen, you’re constantly giving it garbage input. And if you’re not holding it by the screen… where are you holding it?
