We were looking forward to spending some hands-on time with Microsoft's dual-screen Courier, right up until the Redmond software giant scrapped the project. Picking up where Microsoft left off, NEC is planning to launch a two-screen slate of its own, Yahoo News reports.
The device, which will make its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, will include a pair of 7-inch touchscreens. It's reportedly based on the LifeTouch model NEC showed off in Tokyo a month ago, and will carry the LifeTouch moniker.
Connectivity options include built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G. Other than that, not much is known about the device. As for the intended audience, NEC will market the dual-screen slate to publishers, healthcare professionals, and logistics industries.
