Toshiba announced on Monday a limited edition dual-touchscreen ultra-mobile PC (UMPC) running Windows 7 that will be available for purchase from select retailers later this summer. Called the Libretto W100, it could be a challenge to Apple's iPad, suggest some critics; however, unlike Apple's single-panel touchscreen computer, Toshiba's new UMPC sticks to the traditional clamshell design found in most laptops and netbooks. Toshiba did not announce pricing for the W100.

What are the Specs?

The W100 is powered by a 1.2 GHz Intel U5400 processor, and has 2GB DDR3 RAM, a 62GB solid state hard drive and two 7-inch (diagonal) touchscreens with 1024 by 600 resolution. The UMPC is running Windows 7 Home Premium and features a virtual keyboard with haptic feedback that can be configured in six different ways including full, numeric 10-key (number pad), and split thumb. Other specs include 1 megapixel Webcam with face recognition technology, microSD card slot, one USB 2.0 port.

802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.1. Toshiba did not announce a 3G option for the W100.

I'll bet the battery life is at least 15 minutes.
