Sony Tablet P: What is the size of two 5 1/2 inch screen?

When Sony announced the Sony Tablet P, there is one burning question left unanswered. What is the size of two 5 1/2 inch screen combined together?
You see, the Sony Tablet P has this unique design. Instead of having just 1 screen like most Tablets, the Sony Tablet P has two 5 1/2 screen in a clamshell form factor. I was joking previously that the Sony Tablet P has a combined of 11 inch screen. But everyone know this is not possible. Adding two 5 1/2 screen will never give you a 11 inch screen.
This is because of the way we measure screen size. Screen size is measured diagonally. This method was inherited from the good old CRT days. There are math formulas to derive the size of two 5 1/2 inch screen but then since I have a Sony Tablet P for review, why not just take a ruler and measure it?

And the size of two 5 1/2 inch screen is approximately 7 inch. This is quite a surprise actually. I was expecting at 8 or 9 inch. Oh well. More reviews of the Sony Tablet P coming soon.
Now, if you are still in school, don’t tell your teacher that I teach you 5 1/2 + 5 1/2 = 7.
