NEC Cloud Communicator Android tablet with dual screens at CES

NEC has already indicated that it will be at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month and will definitely have its Cloud Communicator tablet on the show floor in full force. However, it seems that the a dual screen version of the Android tablet will also be making an appearance.

I imagine that much of the “guts” of the dual-screen tablet will be the same as its single screen counterpart, meaning that we should expect an ARM Cortex A8 processor, 3MP camera, SD card slot, WiFi, GPS, and Android 2.1. The main difference, of course, is the inclusion of a second 7-inch “Retina Touch Panel” display.

The idea of rocking two touchscreens on a single tablet isn’t exactly new, but many of the concepts and prototypes we’ve seen thus far have left something to be desired. I’m not entirely sure what NEC is going to do to make its doubled-up Cloud Communicator any better, but if the rumors hold true, I should be able to find out in just a couple of weeks.
