Color this one as interesting speculation at this point, at least in regards to the timing. Mike Elgan at Computeworld is linking to a DigiTimes report that says Asus is prepping a dual touch screen device, prepped for Windows 7 multi-touch in the first or second quarter of 2009. This would obviously be before Windows 7 is scheduled to ship. We must have missed this earlier but Asus apparently unveiled a look at a what I’m guessin is a prototype of this at Computex 2008. Like Mike says, this would be similar to what we’ve seen about the next version of the OLPC. Wonder if any other manufacturers are working on dual screen devices?
