Smartron positions itself as a homegrown Internet of Things (IoT) player building next-generation smart devices, things, and systems.

The tbook flex is a mid-range Windows convertible with high-end aspirations. The design inspiration, of course, comes from the Surface line-up. There’s a ‘flixstand’ with a step-less hinge design and an ability to flex up to 150 degrees as well as an island style, backlit detachable keyboard that connects via Bluetooth. The tbook flex also sports a fingerprint scanner.
