Toshiba India Corporation on Friday launched the world’s first dual-touch-screen Windows mini-notebook PC – Libretto W100 – and its thinnest and lightest full-function 33.8cm (13.3 inch) laptop Portege R700.
The Libretto (W100) runs on Microsoft Windows 7 it has two 17.8cm (7 inch) touch-sensitive screens.
It can mimic both ‘traditional media’, opening like a book, or ‘high-tech’ media, like lifting the lid of a laptop. That means users could hold the Libretto W100 vertically to read the double-page spread of a newspaper, or could hold it horizontally, reading a document on the upper screen, while using the lower screen to capture clippings and ideas.
The lower screen can also display a virtual keyboard, enabling the device to function in the same way as a laptop.
The user can easily drag and drop content, files or icons from one screen to another with a simple sweep of the finger.
Lighter and smaller than even a netbook, people can carry the Libretto W100 with them nearly everywhere.
Its wireless connectivity can provide convenient web access on the move.
