Toshiba's NEW Dual Screen UMPC libretto W100 coming to Japan this August. Toshiba has resurrected there Libertto series in a big way with the new dual screen W100 which looks a lot like the recently canceled Microsoft Courier.
While sporting two 7" capacitive touch screen displays (1024x600) one of the displays also doubles as a keyboard and mouse pad. Thankfully Toshiba passed on the anemic Atom CPU for a dual core CULV 1.2GHz Intel Pentium U5400 processor, as well as 2GB of RAM, a 64GB SSD and Windows 7 Home Premium. Prices in Japan is set at about 120,00 YEN (about $1300 USD). Other features are an accelerometer, 1x USB 2.0 port, 802.11abgn wifi, WiMax, Bluetooth, Webcam, and a microSD card slot. It sizes up at 202×123×25.4mm and weighs in at 699grams. While we are happy that they are using the CULV CPU the battery life is reported to be only about 2 hours with the standard battery and 4 hours with the large.
