Acer shows off the Iconia

Written by Slobodan Simic

Dual-screen notebook/tablet
In addition to a bunch of regular tablets, Acer has also showed a rather unique dual-screen notebook/tablet hybrid at its event in New York City. The same concept has been seen with Toshiba's Libretto W105 and Asus' concept, but Acer's Iconia looks more real than anything else.

This 14-inch dual-screen notebook will pack Intel's Core i5-480M/560M/580M CPU, up to 4GB of DDR3 memory, a pair of 14-inch multi-touch 1366x768 screens, integrated Intel GMA, up to 750GB of HDD space, 802.11bgn WiFi, 3G, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 3.0, webcam and USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports.

The two screen concept looks solid enough but since Acer didn't talk about the price of this one we will have to hold on a bit longer. It will be equipped with four-cell battery and should weigh around 6.18 pounds (2.8kg).

Impulse buy, here I come! I'm doubting it has any haptics for the virtual keyboard - but that would seal the deal if it did. Also, the "here" is missing a link.

Still too bulky and no haptic feedback means it'll be harder to use than cheaper netbooks. Use of second screen is pathetically novel - no applications designed for practical human use with such a unique form factor. A glance at MS's abandoned courier device and you'll see how much missing potential this device has.

Fantastic intent. Failed implementation.

IMO current technology just isn't refined enough to do it's due diligence in a device of this design. I look forward to the day when it is though.

Wait does it have AMD Fusion As a standard ?
Or is Intel Optional .
