Toshiba Libretto W100 - Ultra-Portable Netbook with Two Touchscreens...

The tech giant Toshiba has recently unveiled the images of its new gadget called Libretto W100, which is an ultra mobile computer with two 7-inch LCD touchscreens. When you open the computer its two screens can be used as one. Each screen can be used to surf through different applications. In addition, you can use one display as a virtual keyboard. While this portable computer can be used as a netbook, you may also use it to read e-books if it is flipped on its side. It is worth mentioning that each screen has a 1,024 x 600 pixel resolution and LED backlighting that allows reducing power consumption. The LED backlighting is a very useful feature, considering the fact that the battery holds for only 2 hours. Virtual keyboards are considered by some users somewhat inconvenient, which is why Toshiba decided to include vibration feedback in its multi-mode virtual keyboard. The latter has several typing modes: full 108 key, simplified (without the numbers and symbol keys), thumb and 10-key numeric pad. The W100 runs Windows 7 Home Premium. Its heart is a 1.2 GHz Intel Pentium U5400 (CULV) processor. In addition, the device boasts a 2GB of RAM. Among other features you will find:

- integrated Bluetooth v2.1;
- microSD card slot;
- USB 2.0 port;
- 1.02Mp webcam with face recognition;
- 62GB SSD.
The gadget measures 7.95 x 4.84 x 1.2-inches (L x W x H) and is available in black with brushed aluminum finish. Toshiba looks forward to launch its new device in Japan this August. Meanwhile there is no information on when the gadget will hit other markets.
