Tablets are a fashionable topic right now - Apple are expected to announce their own model next week, and CES 2010 was positively dripping with touchscreens - but we've been hammering on about how useful a compact ultramobile device can be for years now.

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.
