Newspaper laptop? Maybe some day

Concept model envisions reading dual screens

Even in the digital age, some people just can't shake their habit of reading the morning newspaper in pulp. This won't solve the paper fix for those die-hards, but it could at least simulate the broadsheet experience.

The "Dual Touch Screen Laptop" from Italian design house V12 may be only a concept at this stage but is becoming far more feasible as computer makers increasingly experiment with multiple LCDs in a single device. This model, according to BornRich, envisions a touch screen and electronic pen as well--more vestiges of the pre-Internet days. But we wouldn't recommend trying to read the sports pages this way while hanging from a subway strap.
