NEC LifeTouch W Dual-Screen Android Tablet to release in next Month in Japan

NEC LifeTouch W Dual-Screen Android Tablet to release in next month
The Kyocera Echo became the world’s first dual-screen Android smartphone this year when it was released on Sprint’s Network. Today, NEC of Japan has just announced that they will be rolling out a dual 7″ screen Android tablet known as the LifeTouch W soon – although other eyes have seen it earlier in the year at CES 2011.

Running Android 2.2, the LifeTouch W boasts two 7-inch SVGA resistive touchscreen displays for a combined resolution of 1600 x 1400. The NEC LifeTouch W is by no means a powerhouse. In fact we’d argue the tablet is more along the lines of a mid-range Android smartphone, armed with two large displays. Under the hood is an ARM Cortex-A8 processor, 384MB of RAM and 1GB of ROM. Connectivity options are standard with WiFi, USB and a SD card slot.

The LifeTouch W is tipped to arrive at stores sometime in June, offering Android 2.2 Froyo right out of the box in addition to access to the Android Market. Of course, we would have wished for it to feature the latest version of the Android OS (and perhaps Android 3.0 Honeycomb since this is a tablet), but perhaps NEC has an update lined up as well.
NEC has not announced any details on pricing yet and there is also no details on when it will be available in the US and Europe.
NEC LifeTouch W specs:
  • Android 2.2 (with access to the Android Market)
  • two LCD TFT 7-inch screens with 600×800 resolution

  • GPS module
  • 5 hours battery life
  • stylus pen in the box
  • size: 135×208×23mm, weight: 530g
