Kohjinsha DZ: Dual-screen netbook a reality, launches in December

November 26, 2009 at 4:40 pm

Kohjinsha DZEarly last month, Kohjinsha demonstrated what was believed to be a concept netbook device carrying two displays. The idea is that 10.1-inch LCD screen sits behind the other and slides out when needed. Well it appears that Kohjinsha will be commercially launching this netbook, dubbed DZ, in December.

It will have two 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) displays that, when combined, will give a total resolution of 2048 x 600 pixels. It will be powered by a 1.6GHz AMD Neo MV-40 processor, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD and Windows 7 Home Premium. The dual screens will come at the cost of 1.84kg in weight. Battery life should last for 4 hours according to the company.

The Kohjinsha DZ netbook will launch in Japan on December 11th for 79,800 Yen (£560, $920, €615). It’s unlikely that we’ll be seeing this unique model hitting western shores. Check out a video of the concept in action after the break.

    Wow .. a 2048 X 600 resolution. It should have been called the ‘hawk eye’ !! Its too heavy, underpowered for such a device and I am assuming, it’ll eat up battery well before 4 hours and who’ll fix this if this drops and cracks open. Use this only in Japan .. lol !! I think this will remain a concept. Why not just purchase a 17″ inch notebook instead ??
