Adamo launch tomorrow
An alleged spyshot of a Dell event invitation adds more evidence to rumors that the notebook is set to launch on Tuesday. The invitation, provided to Gizmodo by a tipster, describes "one of the most anticipated brand and product launches in the 12 year history of Dell's Consumer business." A specific product is not mentioned, but the title reads "Don't Miss Your Chance to 'Fall in Love.'" Adamo means "to fall in love with" in Latin, a phrase that Dell has previously used when referencing the notebook.
Earlier in the day, a Google AdSense ad for Ireland carried a similar message. Users will be able to "discover the love story" on the 17th, while the link connects to the current teaser page.
Although the company has remained hush regarding specs, the ultra-thin notebook is thought to offer either a Core 2 Duo S processor or an ultra-low voltage variant. A collection of photos from Brian Solis showed an Ethernet port, two USB connections, a DisplayPort and other connectors located on the back of the main housing, while the ultra-flat keyboard features backlighting through the keys.
If the image leak is genuine, the Adamo will launch on the same day as the iPhone 3.0 firmware. Although the notebook is a purported competitor to the MacBook Air, it is unknown if the event overlap was intentional or merely a coincidence.
