Kohjinsha’s Dual Screen Netbook Goes Into Production

kohjinsha-dz-01-600x375If you remember that intriguing dual-screen netbook back at CEATEC this year, it has now gone into production. They are accepting pre-orders and the device will be out soon. As in this December soon. Considering the fact that it was said to be a concept only some time back, that was some fast development the thing went through.

Called the Kohjinsha DZ, it will have two 10.1” screens that have 1024×600 pixels each, So when you fold it out, it will display 2048×600 pixels. This is not an Atom model.

It will be running on AMD’s Neo MV-40 processor, clocking at 1.6GHz, which is pretty standard for netbooks. Graphics will be handled by the integrated ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics. Two DIMM slots support dual-channel architecture and will support up to 4GB of RAM. You will get a 160GB SATA HDD, Bluetooth 2.1 and EDR, WiFi N, Windows 7 Home Premium (32Bit).

You will also be getting a fingerprint scanner, although we all know by now that they are extremely easy to fool and/or bypass. It will be supplied power by a 6-cell 5200mAh battery. It has 3 USB 2.0 ports, one VGA, an SD and microSD card reader and the usual audio in/out.

Kohjisha DZ’s main product page is up right now and they are currently charging 79,800 for it. That converts to around $900 US. But since everything is more expensive in Japan, we can expect the US price to be lower.

Overall, I am sure it came has a mild shock to people who have followed Kohjinsha’s getting fed up of this. Whether anyone has any particulsr use for a dual screen is still debatable but I guess Kohjinsha sees some potential in it.

  • I don’t think anyone will be buying these. How much of a geek are you going to look when you set one of these up at your local coffee shop?

    You might as well bring your blue and red glasses for watching some 3D movies!
