Toshiba NB205 Ships to US
Toshiba today quietly started offering its NB205 netbook within the US. First shown in American trim at the start of the month and already on sale in Canada, the netbook is slimmer than before but lasts much longer on battery, running up to 9 hours. A slightly faster 1.66GHz Atom N280 also sets it apart.
As promised, the system comes in a basic $350 N210 model with a conventional, scalloped keyboard design, no Bluetooth and a black-only finish. At $400, the N310 comes in blue, brown, pink and white while adding Bluetooth and a potentially more comfortable "chiclet" keyboard design. Both are available immediately online and should also be in retail shops. [via Laptoping]
