MSI dual-screen e-reader and netbook runs Windows 7
MSI is the first company to show off a working prototype of their dualscreen e-reader. And it’s everything you ever dreamt of – sort of. MSI is calling this dual 10-inch screen device an e-reader, it’s really more of a netbook with two screens since it’s got an Intel Atom Z Series processor and runs Windows 7 Home Premium.
The device is about the size of a netbook; it’s all metal and it actually felt quite heavy in our hand. Both screens are 10 inch multitouch displays that interact the way two monitors would on a dual-display setup. It ran a little sloppy; it’s obviously running some beta software, but the digital keyboard was easy to pull up and had a haptic-like feedback when typing on the bottom screen. For a very early build it is quite impressive. MSI actually plans to bring it to market within the year.
