Toshiba hasn’t finished announcing new devices just yet, we’ve already seen the AC100 smartbook, but now we’ve got something much more interesting, the libretto W100. The W100 has a form-factor similar to that of the Microsoft Courier before it was canned. The W100 comes with two 7-inch (1024 x 600) multi-touch capacitive displays in a clam-shell design with brushed aluminium finish and will run Windows 7 Home Premium.
The libretto W100 is powered by a 1.2GHz Intel Pentium U5400 processor, 2GB RAM and a 62GB SSD. Other features include a 1.0MP HD webcam, Wi-Fi (b/g/n). Bluetooth 2.1 , one USB port, a microSD memory card slot and 8-cell battery.
The two displays can work independently or together, depending on how you want to use them. It will also include a built-in 3D accelerometer, so that you can easily flip between portrait and landscape mode. The libretto W100 features six virtual keyboard modes (with haptic feedback) plus a virtual touchpad.
The libretto W100 is a tribute to the company’s 25th Anniversary of “laptop innovation”. Whilst Toshiba talks of this being a concept PC in its press release, the company is actually releasing the libretto W100 to retail in limited quantities. It won’t be cheap though, costing $1,099 and will be available in late summer.
