Onkyo outs higher-spec dual-screen netbook
Japanese PC maker Onkyo has released the second dual-screen netbook PC on the market, the DX1007. It appears to be a near identical copy of the first dual-screen netbook, the Kohjinsha DZ6HKE16E, but improves on the formula. The differentiators include 2GB of RAM instead of 1GB, as well as 1366x768 resolution 10.1-inch screens for Onkyo's DX1007 as opposed to 1024x600 in the Kohjinsha version. There is also twice as much hard drive space, at 320GB instead of 160GB.
Both are powered by the same 1.6GHz Athlon Neo and integrated AMD graphics. There is Windows 7 Home Premium preloaded onto either netbook, and users get a Wi-Fi connection and a gigabit Ethernet port. There is also a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1 and a multi-card reader, along with three USB ports. Its battery is rated for a slightly shorter duration than the other dual-screen netbook, at 3.7 hours versus 4.5 hours.
The DX1007 should launch in Japan on December 21st at the equivalent of $960. [via Impress]
