From a Californian source, we have received pictures of a laptop from Acer that is currently in development. It has two touch screens, one as the laptop’s display and one as the keyboard/trackpad. In other words, it has no physical keyboard or trackpad but rather a secondary screen for both.
The laptop has an Intel Core i5 CPU (2.67GHz) and runs Microsoft Windows 7 with a 15″ display. No release date is yet known, but our source says Acer is aiming for fall 2011 if the device makes it out of development. Our source says the unit is “still slow and buggy”, so it’s definitely still in its early stages of development. Both displays are multitouch enabled and the laptop allows you to “swap” screens if you choose.
Below are some pictures of the device. We hope to also have a video of the device in use and we will post it if we can get it. We think this looks pretty cool and we hope it makes it to market.
