Vu+ Duo2 Front

The Vu+ Duo2 will have a dual core 1300 MHz CPU which of course means fast boot like the Vu+ Solo2. Included is also plenty of ram with 2 GB and 1 GB Flash. The ram is given a big boost compared to the Solo2

PiP is not a problem even with HD channels .

Vu+ Duo2 LCD

Vu+ Duo2 3.2″ Graphical Color LCD front display

Brand new feature on Vu+ Duo2 is the 3.2″ Graphical Color LCD on the front of the receiver. We expect to see many ways of using this. Channel Logo’s for sure will be possible. Weather forecast anyone?

While it looks cool we guess the interest in this feature varies from person to person. Sure it looks cool but is is really useful? What do you think?
