Kohjinsha DZ dual-screen netbook gets video unboxing

Kohjinsha's DZ dual-display netbook make have been slightly outclassed by the Onkyo DX-Series (galling, since the DX is basically a rebadged DZ with a few extra pixels), but we're still unlikely to turn our hands up at an unboxing of the original.  WOW-POW have acquired a DZ and promptly shot a video unboxing and brief overview, which you can see after the cut.

Onkyo DX-Series upgrade dual-display netbook with more pixels

Onkyo DX-Series upgrade dual-display netbook with more pixels

We can't help but wonder whether Kohjinsha will be a little bit frustrated with Onkyo, who have rebranded the company's nifty dual-display netbook but actually one-up'd the original by slotting in higher resolution panels.  The Onkyo DX-Series has the same form-factor as the Kohjinsha DZ, which means a rotating pair of 10.1-inch LCD screens but the footprint of a regular netbook, only theirs uses two 1,366 x 768 panels rather than the original's 1024 x 600.

Kohjinsha DZ dual-display netbook shipping December

Kohjinsha's dual-display netbook was one of the stars of CEATEC back in October, but the company was quiet on whether the prototype would reach shipping stage.  Strong feedback has obviously tipped their hand, however: you can now preorder the netbook, freshly named the Kohjinsha DZ, with a Japanese delivery expected on December 11th.  Your 79,800 yen ($921) netbook has two 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 LCD displays which sandwich together into the lid for ease of transportation, as well as rotating all the way around to face backwards.

Kohjinsha PA MID gets reviewed: overshadowed by massive price

Kohjinsha PA MID gets reviewed: overshadowed by massive price

Kohjinsha's PA-series MID may have a fussy aesthetic going on, but that doesn't mean we don't find the 4.8-inch touchscreen convertible appealing.  Announced back in October, we've already seen the PA-series unboxed but now comes the moment of truth: a full review.  Jenn from Pocketables knows a bit about MIDs and ultraportable devices, so when she says that the Kohjinsha is versatile yet "truly insane" in how it's priced, we know it's dark days for the little MID.

Kohjinsha PA MID priced out of the market?

Kohjinsha PA MID priced out of the market?

Kohjinsha's PA-series MID may have satisfied us that the company is at least listening to critique about form-factor and usability - unlike other mini-notebooks, such as the UMID mbook m1 and Sharp’s NetWalker, it has a rotating touchscreen for use as a slate - but they still seem to have their fingers in their ears when it comes to pricing.  According to WOW-POW, the PA MID will come in at 69,800 yen, which works out to a whopping $760.
