Tony Smith writes about a new laptop from Acer, better known as Iconia.

“Tablets out of the way, we now come to Acer’s other big launch: a 14in laptop with a virtual keyboard. Yes, the Iconia – as the new machine is dubbed – sports a second LCD where the keyboard usually goes, giving the laptop the look of a scaled up Nintendo DS or Microsoft’s ill-fated Courier two-screen tablet. Still, the spec is impressive: Core i5 CPU – 480M, 560M and 580M options – up to 4GB of DDR 3 memory, 320-750GB of hard drive storage, a USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ones, HDMI output, 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and HSDPA 3G connectivity.”

Robert Mullins shares details about Dell’s Inspiron Duo convertible tablet.”

“The Inspiron duo sells for $549, or $649 with a docking station that allows you to operate it in tablet format with the computer positioned in landscape mode. That might be a smart option to add. While hefty, the Inspiron duo is, based on dimensions, both small for a notebook but big for a tablet with a 10.1-inch screen, versus 9.7 inches for an iPad and 5.0 inches for a Dell Streak.”
