Acer Iconia dual-screen tablet announced with Windows 7

Acer and Microsoft announce 14-inch dual-screen tablet

Acer, in close collaboration with Microsoft has today officially unveiled the Acer Iconia, a dual-screen tablet device set to launch in January running the Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.

With dual 14-inch screens and weighing in at 2.8kg, the Iconia is no standard tablet, more a tablet, laptop hybrid with either screen being able to act as a virtual, touchscreen keyboard standing in for the lack of a physical option.

Packing a 640GB hard drive with 4GB of RAM and an Intel Core i5 processor, the Iconia is no slouch and with three USB ports, one of which is of the 3.0 variety, a HDMI connector, 3G capabilites and inbuilt Wi-Fi offers a highly functional connectivity spectrum.

On the thrills front the new Acer Iconia features an inbuilt 1.3-megapixel camera and two 720p WXGA screens ideal for video playback. The Iconia’s downfall, however, could come in the form of its puny four-cell battery capable of powering the Windows 7 run device for just three hours of full use.

Set to launch in the UK on January 15th, the 14-inch Acer Iconia will set wannabe owners back a hefty £1,500. Acer has also announced that smaller 10, 7, and 5-inch models of its dual-screen tablet concept will be available in the near future.
