Facebook’s new attempt at hardware with portal

We’ve got some interesting news coming from Facebook. Facebook is planning to release their own little device named as Portal.  And it is going to be an echo show. That is focused on Video chat. We can call it Convergent development. Wherein, multiple organizations arrived at similar looking products after dealing with hardware from all the angles.

Facebook has solved an issue that is face to face talk. This is a trial to exclude the device from the act of video communication. Coincidentally, big companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon has fallen for the same product. There is the standard portal which look little similar to recent release of Lenovo’s.
The large model is with 15 Inch display that is (1920 x 1080).


The bottom is stationary here, however the show orientation may be swiveled into landscape or portrait mode. The bit also breaks down how much more face-to face time that author will spend with their parents, then in their mid-age like 60’s.

The best part is that this is first true Facebook produced piece of consumer electronic device. It was not a matter whether Facebook would create its own hardware however, the question that aroused was when it will be created and how it will look or in what form it will look. It can prove that video is the standalone device of the company’s social platform.
