    I have been looking for a device that can do this and maybe someone out there knows how to make and iPod Touch do it!?

    For my company I need a device with these capabilities:

    Must-have
    - Touchscreen
    - Dual Video (Display + AV-out simultaneously)
    - AV out (S-Video not DVI)
    - 12 - 24 volts (in-car voltage)
    - DRM Win or AAC

    Dual video means that I can choose the files/pics/vids on the iPod Touch screen, and at the same time show the same image simultaneously through video-out on TV.

    Current configurations of the iPod Touch only allows one or the other.

    NB: There is no other device that can do it. Tablet PCs have no video-out, Archos/PSP et al have the same restrictions as iPods do.

    I am pretty sure

    that all of the current video iPods can do that... like at least the iPod Classic should! if not... though I regret saying this, I think the Zune will support that function... You might wanna try getting a demonstration at Radio Shack or Best Buy just to make sure...I asked a guy for similar help once and he hooked everything up and let me test it...! Good luck!

    thank you ijordo

    no they can't - i have iPod 5.0

    they all have a video-out function and socket
    but as soon as you switch to video-out the internal screen is switched off

    there are touchscreen laptops but all based on windows and i really really don't want to commit my presentations to windows.

    also, laptops need too much power, none of them run on batteries for longer than 2hrs. to recharge i need 220volts but i am in a mobile environment with 12 or 24volts.

    laptop means loads of cables and clutter, os crashes and dual-monitor tv-out in windows sucks.

    i tried that
