Toshiba is marking the 25th anniversary of its notebook business with a dazzling dual-screen notebook, dubbed Libretto. The company will apparently offer the Libretto as a limited edition, but it might be a sign of things to come.
It features two touch sensitive 1024x600 screens, so it’s pretty much like having two netbooks or iPads in a single chassis. It’s powered by a Pentium U5400 processor and it packs 2GB of DDR3 memory and 62GB of SSD storage. The Libretto also features a microSD slot, Bluetooth, WiFi, USB and a webcam, or as we at .fud like to say – it has everything that the iPad lacks.
It all sounds impressive, but the Libretto is a pricey piece of kit. It will ship in August and it’s supposed to cost $1,099. Compared to a well spec’d iPad, this doesn’t sound too bad, but it’s still a lot. Nevertheless, it’s a an interesting and well designed device and fashion conscious consumers probably won’t mind the four figure price tag.
