Default I got idea ... can it be done?? - 03-21-2011, 09:33 AM

Hi every one
As you all know that mini9 consider as the most moddest device
and there are a successful mods to add a touch screen.

With Inspiron Duo has been out in the market, I thought if it is possible to make the mini's screen swivel, not like the Duo, but the old type swivel.

Just I want to share my idea, may be someone can do it.

Have nice time everyone.

Search this forum for people who have made tablets out of the Mini 9. Their screens don't swivel, however - there is no hinge available to do that.

Trust me, I've toyed with that idea a long time... but the battery placement makes it very hard to put a swivel base for the screen....
