It is rare to find a device that is both baffling and compelling. This dual-screened tablet or “Touchbook” is now available and shipping in the US next month. It runs a Core i5 chip, Windows 7, and has two 14-inch screens made of high-strength Gorilla Glass that allow for typing, multi-touch, and gestures.
The 14-inch LED dual screened tablet, used by typing or finger touch is the first of its kind making it a great against other makes, and back in January at the Las Vegas CES event, it scored high award for “Last Gadget Standing”.

Acer has created an entirely new interface to the dual-screen system including an odd “ring” interface that lets you select items on screen by making a claw with your hand and spinning onscreen images. Add in various other elements including an onscreen keyboard that essentially turns this thing into a regular laptop.
