Kohjinsha D2 dual-display netbook hands-on

Tucked into the corner of AMD's CES 2010 booth we spotted Kohjinsha's dual-display netbook and couldn't help but check the Athlon Neo MV-40 powered machine out.  Curiously named the Kohjinsha D2, rather than as the DZ as we've seen up until now, the netbook still has twin 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 LCD panels that nest together for transport and then pull out for side-by-side use.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 51 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 51 2009

Here we are again with another week in review, the last week in review before Christmas! That Google Nexus One smartphone that seems incapable of staying out of pictures and video popped up again with word at first that it was good for EDGE on AT&T. A later update found that support for AT&T at all was unknown.

Kohjinsha DZ dual-screen netbook gets video review

Kohjinsha DZ dual-screen netbook gets video review

After watching it get unboxed last week, more than a few people started to wonder whether they could fit a dual-screen Kohjinsha DZ netbook into their gadget bag.  WOW-POW have followed up with a three-part video review of the DZ - which has twin 10.1-inch LCD displays - that you can see after the cut.

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 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’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.

Even if you don't quite see how a MID or UMPC might fit into your daily life, most people can summon up some enthusiasm about just how much tech is squished into those tiny chassis.  Kohjinsha's PA-Series MID wowed us when it made its dinky debut then caused us to choke when we saw what the company were charging; now Wow-Pow have unboxed the tiny convertible.

Kohjinsha dual-display netbook detailed in video demo

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.

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.

Kohjinsha's dinky swivel-screened MID, the PA-series, isn't the only unusual rotation happening on the company's stand at CEATEC.  They're also showing off this dual-screen beast, currently in prototype form, packing twin 10.1-inch LCDs for some mobile widescreen action.  SlashGear Japan stopped by to grab some live photos for us.

Kohjinsha PA-series MID adds swivel-screen to mini-notebook

Kohjinsha may have filled their MID niche with a rebadged UMID mbook m1, but that hasn’t stopped their own engineers from coming up with a homegrown alternative.  The Kohjinsha PA-series takes the same mini-clamshell form-factor of the m1 and Sharp’s NetWalker, but throws in a convertible display for using the MID as a slate.
