ASUS present at CES W5Fe, the first dual screen notebook.

The compact 12” wide notebook with SideShow, external auxiliary display on the LCD cover, has a lot of other nice features like webcam, card reader slot or Bluetooth 2.0+EDR.

ASUS W5Fe SideShow notebook

The W5Fe’s auxiliary display is a short cut to viewing a wide range of information, including meeting schedules, phone numbers, addresses, and recent e-mail messages. This comes as a very handy tool when, for instance, one needs to take a quick look at the meeting agenda in a crowded elevator. On the entertainment front, the outer display can be used to view photos, play music and games such as Solitaire. In addition, SideShow can even act as the mobile navigation device and guide the way with map display!
