You remember the really cool dual-monitor MSI netbook? We first saw it earlier this month at CES 2010. This unique take on the netbook sports two 10" monitors, one of which acts as a keyboard with haptic feedback. When we first saw this new machine, the assumption was that it would run on Windows 7. Now an interview with Laptopmag shows that this tablet could launch sporting Chrome OS.

MSI hopes to launch their new netbook later this year, in Q3 or Q4. They are shooting for 4-5 hours of battery life, which is really about all you can expect out of a netbook with two screens. MSI is gearing it to work as an e-reader/netbook with a big push on multi-tasking. MSI may also be bringing a 7" dual-screen tablet/netbook to market.

MSI is still evaluating whether or not to launch their netbook with Chrome OS or Windows 7. Multiple different models with different operating-systems may also be launched. No information on pricing is out yet, but more details should emerge as we get further into 2010. (Photo via Engadget)
