Toshiba Libretto W100 sells out at Amazon

Just two days after officially going on sale in the UK via Amazon, the Toshiba Libretto W100 dual-screen ultraportable has sold out.  Priced at $1,100 (for the W105-L251 model with no integrated 3G) and admittedly only available in "limited numbers", the Libretto W100 obviously proved appealing to a subset of cash-rich users who liked the look of two 7-inch capacitive touchscreens.

Amazon are crediting "overwhelming demand" for the Libretto's sell-out status, and saying that they're not sure when - or even if - the ultraportable will come back into stock.  Of course we don't actually know exactly how many units Amazon had in-stock to begin with, but the W100 did manage to climb to number 29 in the retailer's Top 100 of bestselling computer & electronics items.

For now, until we know whether Toshiba will be sending Amazon any more, the only way to find a W100 in the US is via importers.  It's an expensive route, though, with Japanese imports priced at $1,400+.
