Toshiba today announced the availability of its first W100 series 7-inch dual touchscreen notebook/tablet model, the libretto W105-251. The libretto is a next-gen ultra-mobile concept PC first announced at CES 2010
This limited-edition 25th Anniversary device goes beyond slates and netbooks to deliver something more: a full Windows® 7 experience that can be enjoyed across two multi-touch screens.
With an ultra-portable weight of just 1.8 pounds, the libretto W105 is designed to deliver a rich Internet experience, multimedia playback and the freedom to multi-task–just like a standard laptop–but with the advantage of two seven-inch diagonal touch screens to work, watch and play on. The multi-touch 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 W105 to rotate into portrait or landscape modes, making the device look and feel more like a book, newspaper or magazine.
Designed for portability, the libretto W105 features a compact and durable clamshell design with a brushed metallic finish. The traditional clamshell design allows the device to fold up for easier portability, while protecting the screens from breaks and scratches. Measuring a mere 4.84 inches by 7.95 inches when closed, the device fits easily into almost any bag or jacket pocket.
