In celebration of the company's 25th year in the mobile computing business, Toshiba announced Libretto W100, a special edition dualscreen ulta-mobile companion that goes beyond standard slates or tablets to deliver something more: A full Windows 7 experience.
"The Libretto W100 continues the libretto brand's heritage of defying convention by packaging a full Windows computing experience into highly compact ultra-mobile form factor," shares Carl Pinto, Vice President of Product Development, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division.
"This concept PC sets the pace for Toshiba's continued commitment to innovation, demonstrating what's possible in the next generation of ultra-mobile PCs. We will issue a limited run of the libretto W100. We design our products around the way people actually want to use them, so getting this concept PC out into the hands of early technology adopters will allow us to gather invaluable feedback that we can filter into future product developments."
