New Acer dual LCD device

I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned in the forums yet, but have any of you noticed the Acer Iconia 6120 Touchbook? Practically the same as the Kno - 2 14" LCD screens, 6+ lbs and just over $1000.

http://www.crunchgear.com/2011/03/29...nia-touchbook/

It runs Windows 7 and includes Journaling and Scrapbooking apps, which ring familiar to the Microsoft Courier prototype.

The marketing photos always show the device in laptop orientation. I'm wondering for the OneNote tablet PCs fans out there how this device might be of interest if the device would work in "book" orientation.

It could be a decent alternative to the 10" eDGe (excusing the weight and price), but the article doesn't mention pen input (only finger and kebyboard). Clearly, pen input is mandatory for even a casual candidate for an eDGe replacement.

I heard about it but I had the impression it didn't have active digitizer.
