Acer reveals Iconia dual-screen laptop, Clear.fi cloud sharing service


Acer had a media event in New York where they introduced some new items and services. First, they showed their latest laptop / tablet duo, the Iconia, which boosts two screens, and no keyboard. The touch screen takes the place of the keyboard and can display a variety of touch interfaces, including a virtual keyboard, similar to what Toshiba already did in the past. Inside you'll find an Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of memory and an Intel HD graphics card. The new laptop also comes with a fairly interesting media system that's gesture based.

Most of the news event however was Acer joining the large number of companies embracing the cloud, and showing off their Clear.fi content sharing system which they originally introduced earlier this year. The platform, which the company claims is "more than an App Store" will be pre-loaded on all their future systems. Both free and paid content will be available and it wiill apparently focus on audio and video content, as well as apps from partners, since there's no word of an SDK for developers. The new Clear.fi platform will debut next month in Europe.
