Asus has a while back launched its Lamborghini-inspired netbook, the Eee PC VX6. The Asus Eee PC VX6 Lamborghini Netbook looks like a sports car and a laptop mixed together. It’s pretty obvious considering the fact that it was manufactured in conjunction with Lamborghini, the sports car brand.

Finally, the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet has been revealed at a recent event. The tablet, which was showed off by RIM’s CEO Mike Lazaridis, comes with multitasking abilities. It can also handle browser that are based on Flash video playback.
The BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet was unveiled at an Adobe developers conference where RIM’s CEO gave us a sneak peek at what to expect from the upcoming device. The PlayBook tablet makes full use of Adobe’s AIR technology, which means that the device will be able to run several built-in applications as well as apps by third-party developers that are supported by Adobe’s AIR.
This is definitely a good move by BlackBerry. The presence of Adobe’s Air or rather the fact that this device supports Adobe Air will make it easier for developers (third-party) to create apps for this device. This will be open to a whole group of developers unlike those manufacturers who encourage developers to build software based on their own system.

Good news for all who love a good leak! An unannounced Acer laptop has been spotted in the wild. What’s more? The device comes with dual screens that measure 15-inch. More likely, the display screen will be used as the display while the other screen, of the same size, will be used as a replacement for the keyboard and trackpad.
It might seem that this not yet seen Acer laptop is huge. Well, it could be if it is carrying dual 15-inch screens. As usual, this leak too comes with the least information possible. The online community has been racking up their brains to decide the device’s features based on the pictures leaked alone.
Basically, the Acer dual screen laptop has the same concept as the Microsoft Courier and theToshiba Libretto W100 whereby the latter has only 7-inch screens. Experts are saying that this Acer laptop with dual screens will be released late next year. Looks like we will have to wait a long time for the full package!
