Next week, a number of major consumer technology companies will converge on Berlin, Germany to exhibit a number of future products at the annual IFA trade show. This week, Sony was the first to launch a teaser video of what it plans to announce at the show, and it looks like it will borrow a bit from Lenovo's Yoga line.
The 31 second clip, as posted on Sony's YouTube channel, shows a blank piece of white paper being folder into various shapes. Some of those shapes actually get labels such as "laptop", "tablet" and "viewer", before the piece of paper gets a written Vaio label at the end.
The shapes of the paper in the video strongly suggest that Sony could announced a hybrid PC next week that has a flexible hinge design that Lenovo made popular in 2012 when it launched its own Yoga family of hybrids, which use Windows 8 and RT. Dell has already announced a similar Windows 8 product with the XPS 11, which has yet to be released.
It's likely that other companies will be launching teaser campaigns for upcoming Windows 8 and 8.1 PCs this week ahead of IFA, which starts on September 6th.
