Dual Screen trend moves to netbooks thanks to Kohjinsha
The Netbook market emerged about 2 years ago and its already making huge strides compared to the Notebooks that have been around for nearly two decades now. We had already seen netbooks do multi-touch on Windows 7, turn into tablet PCs and even come integrated with cellular modems and GPS – but now, we would also have a netbook with dual screen display.

The said device runs on AMD Athlon Neo MV40 processor running at 1.6GHz with 4GB of DDR2 RAM, and Windows 7 Home Premium. It also packs, Wireless N, Bluetooth, a Fingerprint Reader, and a TV Tunner along with DirectX 10 graphics. Now only if they could turn those displays into Eyefinity…
