Acer Iconia-6120 TouchbookFirst the Kyocera Echo, and now the Acer Iconia-6120…it seems that one touchscreen just isn’t enough.

The Acer Iconia-6120 — a dual-touchscreen “touchbook,” as the manufacturer calls it — is now available for pre-order on Amazon. Listed at $1,199.99, the Iconia 6120 will be released sometime in April to “leading retailers nationwide,” according to an Acer press release.

Akin in physical appearance to a standard notebook, the Iconia-6120 sports two 14-inch, LED backlit, LCD touchscreen displays: one where the screen would normally be on a notebook, and the second on the bottom where the keyboard would be. As such, the bottom touchscreen will immediately summon a full QWERTY keyboard whenever the user places both palms on it. Both screens will be resistant to scratches and smudges, as they will be made of Gorilla Glass from Corning with a wipe and clean coating.

The Iconia-6120 will be powered by a 2.66 GHz Intel Core i5 processor (with Turbo Boost technology) and will feature 4GB of memory, 640GB of storage on a SATA HDD, Intel HD graphics, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Other features include a USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI out, a 1.3-megapixel webcam, and Wi-Fi connectivity.
