Acer Iconia Twin Screen Laptop Tablet Hybrid

It’s all about the hybrids today it seems – and, if having a netbook that swivels to become a tablet isn’t flash enough for you how about a dual screen laptop/tablet?

Acer flashed its Windows 7-based Iconia at a press gathering in New Yoik and it sure is a looker.

The Icona is kinda like Acer’s vision of Toshiba’s Libretto W105 in as much that it comes with a nice pair of 14-inch glossy touchscreens. Those happen to be multitouch numbers with a resolution of 1366×768.

No keyboard here – you do get to tap away on a virtual board on the secondary screen though.

It comes loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) and runs on an Intel Core i5-480M / 560M / 580M CPU.

You can have up to 4GB of DDR3 memory, and it’s equipped with an integrated Intel HD graphics (128MB RAM), VGA / HDMI outputs, an inbuilt microphone, a S/PDIF interface and even a USB 3.0 port!

There’s also a choice of 320/500/640/750GB hard drives, Acer’s CrystalEye webcam (1280×1024 res), 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0+HD, integrated 3G WWAN, gigabit Ethernet and a four-cell battery.

All that weighs in at 6.18 lbs

I’m guessing that you’ll be able to hook up to Acer’s newly announced media sharing system – this cloud-based media sharing system that’s designed to play multi-format content over multi-platform devices. Kinda like Apple’s AirPlay.
