Kohjinsha turns dual-screen concept to reality
Japanese PC maker Kohjinsha has taken its dual screen notebook concept it showed off at last month's CEATEC show and made it into a production PC. The DZ6HKE16E is the first of the DZ-series of notebooks, and comes with a 1.6GHz AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 CPU, 1GB of RAM. There is also an integrated ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics chipsets to drive the two 10.1-inch displays, each with 1024x600 resolution and an LED backlight.
For storage, there is a 160GB hard drive preloaded with Windows 7 Home Premium and users can connect to the web over the Wi-Fi connection or gigabit Ethernet port. A 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1 and a multi-card reader are integrated, while the battery is said to provide 4.5 hours of life on a full charge. The system weighs just over 4lbs. There are also three USB 2.0 ports onboard.
Prices start at the equivalent of $928 in Japan and the PC is now available. A release in North America is unknown. [via Impress]
