Toshiba intros netbook

Toshiba has jumped onto the netbook bandwagon with its surprise entry, the 8.9-inch Satellite NB105, according to a Friday report. Thus far, the netbook is only linked to Toshiba Mexico, and features Intel's 1.6GHz Atom CPU that is widely used in competing products. Backed by 1GB of RAM, the netbook will eschew costly flash drives in favor of a traditional HDD with a 120GB capacity. Other cost-cutting measures include the limited spec, giving users the basics such as Wi-Fi connectivity and an Ethernet LAN controller, but no Bluetooth or 3G connection options.

What is included is an SD card slot and three USB 2.0 ports. A webcam will allow for video chats, while Windows XP Home will be the sole interface on the 1024x600 resolution screen. While official prices or release dates have not been announced, the netbook is expected to ship in Mexico at the start of November.
