Dual-screen Acer Iconia priced, dated for Spain

TheAcer Iconia dual-touchscreen notebook introduced at the end of November will ship in Spain on January 28, but for a high price. It should cost 1,499 euros ($1,985) and thus as much as high-end system despite its mid-range insides. If and when it ships in North America isn't known, though it may cost less.

The notebook has two 14-inch, 1366x768 displays with support for Windows 7's multi-touch interface. The bottom screen is gesture-aware and can bring up the keyboard, media controls, an app launcher, window manager and gesture editor. The touch web browser is based on Internet Explorer but is customized to occupy both screens at the same time.

The notebook is powered by a Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, integrated Intel video and storage ranging from between 320GB and 750GB of storage. Acer will also give it an HDMI port, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and a USB 3.0 port. A 3G modem will be optional. [via Engadget]
