Samsung Transparent Notebook Nears Release

February 8, 2010

Fortunately, it’s not four screens in some elaborate folding array, as a four-screened notebook might seem to imply. Three of the displays are smaller, OLED touch-sensitive displays (not unlike those on most digital cameras) line the top of the keyboard, offering some fairly interesting multimedia integration.
