Acer Unveils Iconia Touchbook Dual-Screen Laptop Concept
Acer unveiled today the Acer Iconia Touchbook dual-screen laptop concept device.
The “world’s first 10 finger multi-touch dual-screen notebook” has two 14″ 1366×768 displays, Acer’s custom user interface, Windows 7 Home Premium OS, and an Intel Core i5 processor. It lacks a physical keyboard and uses a virtual on-screen one.
Here’s how Acer describes Iconia’s functionality:
“Multimedia, entertainment, communication, web browsing and office productivity seamlessly flow across the dual screen, allowing users to set the best scenario for what they are doing. To improve readability of web sites or documents, the window can be spread across both screens. But the dual screen also means you can do one thing in one screen and something else entirely on the other: you can browse a website on the top screen and view the contents of your favourite folder on the bottom one or you can watch a video on the top screen and check out your multimedia library in the other.”
It has an Intel Core i5-480M / 560M / 580M processor, up to 4GB RAM, integrated Intel HD graphics, up to 750GB hard drive space, 4-cell battery, built-in webcam and mic, wireless N, Bluetooth, 3G mobile broadband, Gigabit LAN, two USB 2.0 ports, a USB 3.0 port, and HDMI and VGA outputs.
The Iconia Touchbook weighs 6.18 pounds and runs Windows 7 Home Premium OS.
There’s no word on availability and pricing.
