NEC Introduces Dual-Screen Tablet

NEC has just announced a new product called the LifeTouch W; a dual-screen Android tablet. Now don’t get too excited just yet, we are only talking about Android 2.2, and not Honeycomb. Despite being a froyo tablet, consumers will be getting two 7″ screens for a total of 14″ of screen real-estate (pretty good for a tablet). The tablet is powered by an ARM Cortex A8/Mobile processor and will have 348MB of RAM and 1GB of ROM. Connectivity-wise, users will access the web through an 802.11b/g/n WiFi or Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR access.

The tablet features a modest 3MP rear camera and the basic USB 2.0, USB 2.0 microB, and SDHC ports (adequate enough for basic use). The device comes packed with a GPS module and is expected to last you about five hours, my guess is without WiFi being that it has dual screens. Users will also get a stylus for some elegant “tableting” and the device weighs just over a pound.

NEC hasn’t come forth with pricing or availability just yet but I am guessing it will be around $300-$400 since they rarely release computing devices. I guess this is one of those gadgets where pricing means everything. I know I would give it a shot if the price was right, but not if it was priced similarly to other well established tablets. Let us know what you think below in the comments section.
