Engadget spotted MSI's dual-screen eReader at CES. This device is better described as a netbook with two screens though, the device has two 10" LCD displays, it runs Windows 7 Home Premium and is powered by an Intel Atom Z series processor. The company is planning to launch this product later this year.
The all metal device is about the size of a netbook and it actually felt quite heavy in our hand. On the inside of the dual 10-inch, capacitive multitouch screens work like extended displays and we were able to drag windows from one screen to the other. The entire thing was a bit flaky since it's obviously running some beta software, but the digital keyboard was easy to pull up and had a haptic-like feedback when we started typing on the bottom screen.
