Like I posted before, tablets are taking over this year’s CES. The Japanese company NEC has revealed its dual-screen tablet which opens up like a book. Although it runs Android 2.1, it’s a pretty sweet looking tablet.

It has two 7-inch screens which are not as sensitive as other tablets. It comes equipped with a stylus (eww) for those who have trouble with its sensitivity.

The ARM  Cortex A8 processor
is pretty good with changing apps and surfing the web. You can open your apps to cover both screens, which makes reading a lot easier. You can also read something on the left side, and open up a zoomed portion of it on the right side, which is a pretty handy feature for those that are vision-impaired.

It weighs 1.2 pounds, which is a little less than an iPad and is 1 inch thick when closed. There are three buttons and a track pad on the bottom of the left side.

Sadly, NEC representatives said that it will first debut in Japan in the next 6 months, but there are no formal plans to expand into other countries. So you’ll have to travel to Japan if you want to try out this revolutionary tablet.

Some specs:

  • Each screen is 800×600
  • Wifi is 802.11b/g
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • SDHC card slot and USB port
  • Mono speaker
  • GPS and accelerometer built-in
