Packard Bell to replace DOT netbook with new model

Packard Bell DOT dead

Packard Bell will no longer bring its earlier announced DOT netbook to market, the computer maker said recently. The Acer Aspire One-based netbook was announced just a few months ago, and was due to go on sale this past January in Europe, priced at the equivalent of about $413. A Packard Bell spokesperson said in an interview the DOT netbook will be replaced by a new model, though did not go into specifics. The same person also mentioned that some changes will be made to the brand, again not expanding on this.

It's not known exactly why the DOT never made it to market. Like the Aspire One it was based on, the netbook featured a 10-inch, 1024x600 display, an Intel Atom processor and 1GB of RAM. Remaining specs included a 160GB hard drive, three USB ports and 5-in-1 card reader. Built-in Wi-Fi and an integrated webcam, along with the option of a 3G module, rounded out the specs.

There is still no word on any details of when the new netbook will come to market or any of its specs, or what the new changes to Packard Bell's lineup will include. [via Pocket-lint]
