Wired has a brief “Fetish” piece looking at a new Toshiba netbook that joins a number of other failed or issued dual-screen devices in replacing the keyboard with a second 7” touchscreen. Among its other uses is, naturally, that of e-book reader, with each pane showing a separate page.
At $1,100, over twice the cost of the cheapest iPad, the 1.2 GHz device certainly does not lack ambition. What it does lack is much reason for buying at such a ridiculous price. You don’t need two screens to display two “pages”. The iPad manages it just fine.
