Following its surprisingly unveiling yesterday, the showstopping, innovative Toshiba Libretto W100 UMPC, with its dual 7-inch touch screens and impressive specs, is now available for preorder in Japan. However, being such a new product that Toshiba will only release on a limited basis for early adopters, the price as expected is at a premium level: 124,000 yen (including tax) or around US$1377. A release date of sometime in August is provided as well as two new images, with the one above depicting an interesting split keyboard layout on the base touch screen, similar to a Microsoft Natural Keyboard.
Bearing in mind this information is from a Japanese site, the previously quoted price of $1100 may still prove to be true for the US market, but the big question is how limited is the company's initial run and apart from Japan, where else will we be able to buy this exciting new device? Hopefully more details will be come from Toshiba very soon.
Anyone interested in taking the plunge bearing in mind the premium price?
