But the dual screen tablet has come a long way since I saw it last year. NEC has worked with software partners to develop apps to take advantage of the dual screen layout. For instance, you can view a PowerPoint presentation in one window while taking notes in a second window — something which could come in handy in a business or education setting.
NEC also plans to launch an updated model of the dual screen tablet this summer. It will feature a TI OMAP4 dual core processor and Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, as well as a thinner and lighter design than the current model.
