HTC is best known for making smartphones, but the company has dipped its toe into the mobile internet device arena. Now it looks like the company could be working on a dual touchscreen device. It could be a netbook/tablet combination device. But it’s more likely some sort of mobile phone.
What’s interesting about this concept is the idea that you could replace the physical keyboard found on most QWERTY phones with a virtual, on-screen keyboard. This would allow you to use the second display to either show a keyboard or additional content. Perhaps you could have a contact list on one side and an IM window or phone call window in the other.
ZOL suggests that when the screens are all the way open, the device will treat them as a single large display, which would be ideal for viewing web pages, video, or other content.
It’s not clear if or when we’ll ever see this concept device turned into a real product.
