Most handheld devices are equipped with sliding structures between LCD and base unit. This can avoid users’ operational error. But most of them can only slide in parallel direction. When the devices are put on the table, user need to bow their head to have a clear vision, this is uncomfortable. Therefore, we created different height feet for the bottom case, which forms an angle between LCD and table, and also provides a better view. We also designed the base unit in a curved form, This allows a bigger degree when the LCD is shifted by the user, and also lets the keyboard naturally placed in a slanted way.
