NEC teases with two-screen Android tablet

Pledges CES outing

Top three mobile application threats

There are no pictures of the gadget yet, but NEC is promising to show off a dual-screen "cloud communicator tablet" running Android - a "world first", the company claims.

It's not the first two-screen tablet, mind. Toshiba's Libretto W100, announced back in June, probably claims that honour, but it ran Windows 7.

NEC's will have Android - Honeycomb presumably; NEC isn't saying. It did say the two screens will be seven-inchers, and that the gadget - which will be demo'd at the Consumer Electronics Shows (CES) early next month - will sport Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth wireless connectivity.

However, it also said that the tablet will use a "stylus pen for easy input", suggesting the screens are not capacitive.

The touchpanel on the single-screen tablet NEC will also show will also make use of a stylus. It too runs Android, has 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, but also packs a camera and an SD card slot, NEC said.

It'll be showing off an Android notebook too. Reg Hardware will be at CES 2011, and we'll bring you the details. ®
