when will it sell in the market
who can i contact
Go Game Guru's comment, June 21, 2011 1:35 AM
I think it's just a concept at this stage, so you can't buy it. I don't think the technology exists to make this yet.

When it does you'll probably see tablet devices like the iPad start looking more like this. When that happens you can install Go software on it. This software: http://www.smartgo.com/ is probably the closest thing you can get at the moment. It runs on iPhone and iPad.
