LG intros light netbook

South Korea's LG introduced the Xnote Mini netbook on Friday, claiming that at 2.6lbs, it is the lightest netbook from a South Korean manufacturer. Apart from the distinction, the 10-inch netbook features an Intel Atom processor rated at 1.6GHz, along with a 160GB HDD. RAM should be fixed at 1GB, while Wi-Fi and 3G access will be part of the specs. Previously unveiled as the X110, the netbook is meant to appeal to women who do not want to lug around heavy computers.

The netbook will sport a built-in 1.3-megapixel camera and a 3-cell battery. Three USB ports, an SD card reader, VGA port and Ethernet jack, as well as stereo audio connections will make up the netbook's connections. Windows XP will be the sole operating system offering. The Xnote Mini will be available in white, black or pink.

LG says it has designed the keyboard to allow for comfortable typing and enlarged the Shift key due to its frequent use.

Specific pricing or release information is still unknown, though it is believed to come in below the equivalent of about $600. [via Akihabara]
