acer iconia press 1

In addition to its Windows 7 tablet and Android tablets, the company has announced a dual-screen tablet/notebook that’s similar to the Toshiba Libretto. The Acer Iconia features two 14-inch touchscreen panels that can be used in either book mode or as a traditional notebook with the secondary screen providing dynamic keys for keyboards or buttons, depending on the program or mode that you’re in. The device packs an Intel Core i5 processor, along with Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi b/g/n, USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and VGI output ports, HDD options from 320 to 750 GB, 1280 X 1024 webcam, and resolution of 1266 X 768 on each of the 14-inch displays, and Windows 7 Home Premium. According to Engadget, you can rest your fingers on the virtual keyboard without accidentally hitting on the keys, but there’s a high learning curve to using the keyboard. As a digital reader, the Iconia measures in over 6-pounds so it may be a bit heavy.
