Acer Dual Screen Laptop Priced at €1500 in Spain

By - Source: Engadget | B 3 comments

Not too long ago we were introduced to Acer's Iconia notebook. At a special event in NYC the company proudly showed off the dual-screen tablet, but refused to give away too many details about price or availability.

Of course, looking at a device that packs two 14-inch multitouch displays and a Core i5 CPU, you know it's going to be expensive.  However, considering there isn't really anything like the Iconia already available, it was a case of 'your guess is as good as ours' when it came to estimating a price tag for the Iconia.

Thanks to a spokesperson from Acer Spain, we know a little more about how much the company is going to be charging for the device. The Iconia will supposedly hit Spanish retailers on January 28 with a €1,499 ($1,984 at time of writing) price tag.

Of course, it's unlikely that Acer will charge U.S. customers the equivalent amount in dollars (it's also likely UK customers will get robbed), but we wouldn't be surprised if the company just swapped out the euro sign for a dollar sign for the North American market and charged us $1,499 here too. Time will tell, I guess.

    More than likely. I have never felt more sorry for you guys than when I heard the Nexus S was going to cost 549 sterling. It's just plain unfair.
