Toshiba UK today announces the launch of the Libretto W100 – a compact, sleek, dual touchscreen laptop offering a unique way for users to create and consume content. Designed to provide a rich mobile computing experience, the new device combines a laptop-style clamshell form factor with dual touchscreen technology, creating an intuitive, easy to use and stylish device that enables users to utilise their content in a number of different ways.
The world’s first dual-screen laptop to be powered by Windows 7, the Libretto W100 features two 17.8cm (7”) touch-sensitive screens, providing a unique interface on which to enjoy web and computing applications. Simple to navigate and easy to use, Windows 7 utilises the W100’s dual-screen technology to the fullest extent, allowing users to navigate menus, run applications side-by-side and interact between applications by easily dragging content from one-screen to another.
Thanks to the Libretto W100’s unique form factor, users can easily separate the two screens and use them for different purposes. One screen can be used for content creation, like word documents or emails, while the other could be used to browse the web, social networks or multimedia programmes. Additionally, the device can also be used vertically thanks to an integrated accelerometer.
Powerful, connected and ready to go
Powered by Intel Pentium™ technology, the Libretto W100 features 2GB of memory, allowing users to run multiple programmes simultaneously. For example, when used as a laptop, users can transform the function of the lower screen to seamlessly switch between a selection of virtual keyboard options or other background applications.
The integrated 62GB SSD provides plenty of storage space for applications, document
s and multimedia content. Users are also able to expand storage or quickly transfer files between devices thanks to the integrated MicroSD card reader and additional USB 2.0 port. The latest Wi-Fi connectivity allows users to get online from any wireless hotspot, and an optional integrated 3G module allows users to enjoy Mobile Broadband over cellular networks2, allowing users to remain connected to the web wherever they are. Additionally, Bluetooth connectivity allows users to pair the Libretto W100 with a range of optional peripherals.
The Libretto W100 offers a unique way to manage files, access stored content or create personal reminders, using Toshiba’s LifeSpace applications. Using the Libretto W100’s dual touchscreen interface, users have a quick, simple and intuitive way of navigating documents with ReelTime – a picture based timeline of recently opened items. Additionally, Bulletin Board allows users to drag favourite files to a virtual pin-board, or quickly bring up links or post-it notes for fast reference – content is ready and just a touch away.
The Libretto W100 will be available from late summer 2010.
