LG intros 3G X110 netbook
LG made everyone wait until Thursday to release its rumored X110 10-inch notebook that would compete with the likes of the ASUS EeePC and the MSI Wind at the IFA 2008 consumer electronics expo. The portable computer uses HSPA 3G for mobile access to data, in addition to a 802.11b/g wireless LAN connection and dedicated Ethernet port. The processor will be an unspecified one from Intel's Atom line-up, working with 1GB of RAM.
The 10-inch screen will have 1024x600 resolution, displaying the familiar Windows XP operating system. Unlike some of its competitors, there will not be a Linux option. Customers will be able to choose from 80GB or 120GB hard drives however, as well as white, black, pink or silver body colors.
While official pricing information has not been announced, it is believed to be set at an equivalent of about $590 in Europe. The X110 should hit European store shelves at the start of November. [via T3]
