Toshiba reveals the world’s first dual-touchscreen mini-notebook – libretto W100
Toshiba today announced the libretto W100, the world’s first dual touch-screen Windows mini-notebook PC. Intel powered, the mini notebook features two 7-inch (1024 x 600) LED touchscreens and is expect to be available this August.
The libretto W100 feature clamshell design with a brushed metallic finish, measures 7.95″ (W) x 4.84″(D) x 1.2″(H), weights 1.8 lbs and comes equipped with an 1.2 GHz Pentium U5400 processor, 2GB DDR3 memory, a 62GB solid state drive, 802.11b/g/n Wireless, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, 1.0 megapixel, webcamera, MicroSD card slot, USB port and 8-cell battery. “The multi-touch screens can work independently or together, giving users the flexibility to decide how they want to use them. Surf the Web on one screen while checking e-mail on the other, view two documents simultaneously or view a webpage across both screens. A built-in 3D accelerometer allows the libretto W100 to rotate into portrait or landscape modes, making the device look and feel more like a book, newspaper or magazine.”
“Since producing the first Intel 286-based clamshell laptop 25 years ago, Toshiba has continued to take a leadership role in bringing new mobile computing technologies to market,” said Tim Bajarin, president of Creative Strategies. “This new libretto is yet another showcase of the company’s technological laptop prowess – they have their minds on the future and a unique, creative view on delivering innovations and form factors that provide a full computing experience in very small packages.”
