Samsung shows Windows 8 dual screen laptop prototype

Samsung has been showing off some interesting new laptop designs for Windows 8-based PCs this week as part of the IFA trade show in Berlin. One of them was a Series 9 laptop with a screen that supported a resolution of 2560x1440.

That's not all Samsung had to show IFA attendees this week. Engadget reports that the company had another laptop concept that had two screens. The article notes that the laptop was heavier than a normal notebook of its size, which indicates that the second screen adds quite a bit of weight to the product.

Samsung also showed off a number of other laptop concept designs at the show, including some variations of a notebook that has a sliding keyboard. However, it looks like the dual screen notebook is the one that is the furthest along in development.

Having said that, it may be a while before any of these designs show up in stores or in your home or office. A Samsung rep at IFA there is no word on when, or even if, they will be released or how much they will cost. However, we would bet that there will be a dual screen laptop in some form released by Samsung.

I was picturing a notebook sized Nintendo DS. Use the bottom screen for touchscreen apps and the top screen for whatever else

Its one step away to have 3 Displays, and If they use microsft surface keyboard mechanism, it can achieve to a pratical use. Or must ahve to Patent my system ? xD ...Fear Apple.

I know that it's just colors, and I'm not an apple fan, but if you turn the display on that laptop to normal position... it'll look like a macbook pro...

So, Apple invented silver and black now?

Only one question: What are you going to do when you want to see both screens at once?

I guess I'll use it in front of the bathroom mirror...

(Very interesting concept though, looking forward to what will come of it)

You mean this was an interesting concept when Asus debuted it back at Computex in June. Samsung is shameless, this is a blatant copy of the Asus Taichi. Samsung has absolutely no originality, what a soulless company.
