Joybook Lite U101 ships

BenQ's JoyBook Lite U101 -- only recently revealed -- is now on sale in Hong Kong, reports say. The 10.2-inch netbook was originally expected to ship in November, following the release of an 8.9-inch system. English-language slides from BenQ have meanwhile disclosed some more features, such as the use of a 10.1-inch 16:9 LCD display, rather than one in the 4:3 or 16:10 formats more common to both notebooks and netbooks. The screen is also LED backlit, which provides uniform color and better power efficiency.

The keyboard on the system is said to be 90 percent the size of a desktop model, and wireless technologies include HSUPA, enabling cellular downloads as fast as 7Mbps or more, though the slides mention an impossible speed of 70Mbps. Also present is Bluetooth 2.0, and a receiver for 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. Pricing is currently unknown, as is the ship date for regions beyond Hong Kong.
