It seems that Acer has been busy at work not only bringing out new tablet devices, but working on new concepts such as the 14-inch dual-screen “Iconia Laptop.” This latest idea of touch devices is hoped to bring interaction amongst users and Acer products such as the one outlined. Here at OSM with the help of Evan over at SlashGear we have looked at this in comparison to the Toshiba Libretto W105 which seem to incorporate similar offerings.

On investigating this further, the two offer their users a notebook feel with touch screen as appose to a physical keyboard. New features include grab-controlled gesture options including the Acer and Circular Menus. This with the mere touch of fingers, opens up the main display, photos, videos and so much more. Users can enjoy the Touch Browser as well as Internet Browser incorporating Internet Explorer. This is all thanks to Windows 7. The Iconia is packed to the rim of fantastic features such as web browsing, communication and entertainment options with viewing content on both dual screens.

Added to this, you will be pleased to learn that 3G connectivity can be issued, with HDMI port offering HD viewing with Dolby Home Theater v3.

Vice President of PC Client Group at Intel Corp “Mooly Eden” has said, “Intel is proud that our close collaboration with Acer has helped to deliver the world’s first 10 finger multi-touch dual-screen notebook with an exciting and innovative end-user experience, powered by the Intel® Core™ i5 processor.
