Acer launches dual-screen laptop to take on iPad

Acer is the latest company to attempt to capitalise on the success of the iPad, with the launch of Iconia, a dual-screen laptop.

The laptop-tablet has two 14-inch displays, one of which can be used place of a keyboard, or as a second screen. Users can spread the desktop across both screens, or use one to watch a video or surf the web, and the other to write an email or edit photos.

Acer described the Iconia as a "different and innovative approach" to computing.

The device uses Intel Core i5 processors, and a minimum of 4GB memory and up to 750GB hard drive and will be on sale in the UK on 8 January for £1,499.

Earlier this year Acer launched a touch screen smartphone, the Liquid E.
