Can a ULV cpu powered dual 7 inch touch screened ultraportable Windows 7 tablet PC , a concept one at that handle a full blown AAA MMO like Star Trek Online.... Fascinating ... let's see ... OK you bet your place in Stovokor it can ...
This test (!) shows how the Libretto can do things , other tablets only dream of dreaming of , and all in a device that is smaller in size and weight than a Tribble or indeed as I mention in the videos below, an old TOS tricorder !
First let us see if we can run the game on dual screens , and how it handles switching from dual to single screen gaming , with the 2nd screen used for the on screen keyboard and mouse . When switching to dual screens I am using a wireless mouse and keyboard .
Now lets stress the Toshiba Libretto we will play Star Trek Online in the top touch screen whilst surfing the official website in the second touch screen
and lastly because everyone always asks , and because the following is only possible on the Toshiba Libretto , lets play the game and surf the site in the portrait/vertical/open book orientation:
What is really fascinating about the Libretto is the punch it`s wifi packs , it is considerably faster than all other tablets , from iPad 2 , to joojoo to the Iconia, the tiny Libretto bests them all . So playing an MMO is simply as easy as clicking on it's freshly installed icon... in this case Cryptic`s Star Trek Online which is running from the Libretto`s 60gb SSD. There is no lag , the game never drops a connection , and when you are messing around with a Libretto you never lose the wow factor .. this is a glimpse of the future of gaming and media consumption.
And you know there is nary an app or gimped phone os in sight . The future of tablets at some stage will require a merging of full OS and presently closed gimped phone OS like iOS and Android , Microsoft may beat Apple to that with Windows 8 , so Steve come on give us a full Mac OS /iOS dual screen Mac Air tablet ! App stores are already emerging on full OS based platforms it is only a matter of time before all these devices merge , till then we have devices like the Toshiba Libretto showing us a glimpse of what is to come , and hopefully one that has better cooling and longer battery life !
Live long and prosper....
