Remember Kohjinsha’s nifty dual-display netbook from CEATEC, that sandwiched two 10.1-inch displays together for some extra-wide Windows 7 productivity? Another video of the netbook in action has emerged, courtesy of DigInfo, and if the sight of beautifully engineered sliding LCD panels makes you weak at the knees, well, sit down before you hit the jump.
Video demo after the cut
The Kohjinsha prototype – made by Inventec – uses an AMD Athlon NeoMV-40 processor with up to 4GB of RAM, and as you can see briefly in the video the display is not only made up of two panels but hinged so it can rotate. The company are still yet to announce whether they’re planning a production model based on the system.
Perhaps we’re slide-crazy, but we’d love to see this dual-display tech coupled with IBM’s “butterfly keyboard” as seen on the ThinkPad 701. You’d end up with a thick notebook, true, but it could open up into an extra-widescreen monitor and full-size keyboard.
