Japanese electronics maker Onkyo has introduced the market's second dual-screen notebook. The Sotec DX1007 brings a few improvements over Kohjinsha's dual-display DZ6HKE16E laptop, which also launched recently, but is otherwise virtually indistinguishable.

Onkyo's product increases each 10.1-inch display's resolution to 1366x768 and boosts the RAM to 2GB compared to Kohjinsha's 1024x600 and 1GB offering. The Sotec DX1007 also brings twice as much storage space with a 320GB HDD instead of 160GB.


Both systems pack a 1.6GHz Athlon Neo MV-40 single core processor and Radeon HD 3200 integrated graphics. Other features include a 1.3 megapixel webcam, 802.11 Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, three USB ports, as well as a multi-card and fingerprint reader.

It's worth noting that the DX1007 reportedly offers less battery life at 3.7 hours versus 4.5 hours. Onkyo's Sotec DX1007 is expected launch in Japan on December 21, and will be priced at $960 -- just like the DZ6HKE16E.
