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.
Each panel is capable of 1,366 x 768 resolution, meaning with both extended you could have a full 2,732-wide desktop. Unlikely to win you any friends in coach-class seating on a plane, but better than even the biggest desktop replacement notebook generally has to offer.
Power is from AMD’s Athlon MV-40, with a 2.5-inch SATA hard-drive and up to 4GB DDR2 RAM squeezed into the compact base. OS is Windows 7 Home Premium, and the whole thing tips the scales at around 1.8kg. Since you’re putting two displays into the lid the unnamed Kohjinsha is pretty thick when closed – around 1.7-inches, the company told us – but if you were considering packing a secondary USB display in your notebook bag then we reckon you’d be better off plumping for this interesting machine.
That is, assuming Kohjinsha decide to green-light production. We feel an email campaign coming on, because this is one unusual notebook we’d like to have in our rucksack.
