Google Trademarks Mystery New Hardware: SpeedbookS

Speedbook. Add that one to your spell-checkers, everyone, as it looks like that'll be the name of a future Google-branded product. But what is it? An e-reader? A speedy notebook? A new page-turning technology for lazy fans of traditional paper media? We have no idea, and neither does Bnet's Erik Sherman who unearthed the application while enjoying a casual, moonlit browse through the US Patent database.

The only clue is that Google filed the request under the "Computer Hardware" category, so it's something physical, at least. [Bnet via SlashGear]
