Toshiba Libretto W100: build good, battery bad, geek-cred off the chart [Video]

Toshiba Libretto W100: build good, battery bad, geek-cred off the chart [Video]

Toshiba's Libretto W100 flew off Amazon's shelves when it went on sale earlier this week, with the retailer already confirming that its initial stock is exhausted.  So, how exactly are the first customers liking the dual-touchscreen clamshell?  Jenn over at Pocketables knows her stuff when it comes to ultraportables, and she seems pretty blown away by the W100 - that's despite only 4hrs runtime with the bloated extended battery, laggy screen rotation and an uncertain target market.

Libretto W100: has Toshiba delivered Courier?

Libretto W100: has Toshiba delivered Courier?

Put the promo shots of the new Toshiba Libretto W100 next to the leaked renders of Microsoft's Courier project and you'd be forgiven for assuming one is the production version of the other.  When I talked to Toshiba late last week at a preview for the new Libretto, however, they were keen to distance their new gadget from what was described by one team member as "only ever a design study".  Of course, two screens and a finger-friendly interface mean the product and the project will inevitably be compared, so just how well does the Libretto W100 live up to the Courier promise, and - more importantly perhaps - where does it most significantly fall short?

Sprint Kyocera Echo Hands-on

Sprint Kyocera Echo Hands-on

Sprint's Kyocera Echo is certainly eye-catching, you have to give it that. Packing two 3.5-inch touchscreens and a clever - if slightly convoluted - hinge, the Echo can be used in a tiny-laptop configuration, as a flattened slate or, if you don't mind a particularly thick device, as a single-display handset. Android 2.2 Froyo and some serious customization are in evidence too; check out our full hands-on impressions - and video - after the cut.
