Dell Inspiron Mini 10, Asus Eee PC 1000HE, STD Results Via Text, LG News: Netbook, 12MP Cameraphone

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 is finally available on Dell's official website. It will be available on February 26, but you can get your orders in now. You will be getting the Mini 10, which has: "a 10.1-inch display, 802.11b/g WiFi, optional Bluetooth 2.1, HDMI out, an external DVD drive, upwards of 160GB of HDD space, 1GB of RAM, a keyboard that's 92 percent the size of a standard laptop, a multitouch trackpad, 720p media playback, optional WWAN, an internal TV tuner and your choice of a 3-cell (3 hours) or 6-cell (6.5 hours) battery." Call that a sweet deal, why don't you. 6.5 hours of battery life on a Dell notebook. While it may not be as long as the Asus EEE PC 1000HE's projected 9.5-hour battery life, it's still decent. Personally, i like the black and white models, cause i don't really enjoy having vibrant colours on my laptop.

Since i just finished mentioning the Dell Inspiron Mini 10's battery life, i might as well talk about the Asus Eee PC 1000HE. This laptop is now shipping to whoever pre-ordered the netbook. It has a 1.66GHz Atom N280 processor and has a projected battery life of up to 9.5 hours under the "perfectly ideal conditions." It's also under $400 USD and i'm actually considering buying one of these in the summertime or maybe even an upgrade to this. Or i can even buy the Android-based Asus netbook. That would be perfect!

On to the LOL news of the day. This is about getting your STD results sent to your phone. You may be too scared to receive the news that you've got an STD face-to-face so, in London, you can now receive the results via text messaging. It's funny, but at the same time it can attract many people to getting tested. I think the picture is hilarious though because the phone is running Windows Mobile (fail) and the sad face is just icing on the cake.

At MWC LG announced a new netbook. The LG-X120 has pre-loaded Windows XP, the Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, an integrated 1.3MP webcam, 1GB DDR2 RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3 USB ports. This 10.1-inch screened netbook also has a matte surface, so that it won't attract any of those nasty fingerprints. The best feature about this netbook is the "Smart-On" interface, "which basically allows the user to access the most frequently used programs just a few seconds after hitting the power button, without waiting for the operating system to completely load the desktop." This feature is currently trying to plague all PCs, notebooks and netbooks, so it's good to see that LG is trying it out. We all hate waiting 1 - 2 minutes in order for our desktops to fully load, so good job LG for satisfying our needs.

LG also said something else at MWC. LG mentioned that they are going to be releasing a 12MP cameraphone. Woop-ti-doo. No one cares anymore. People need to wake up and realize that megapixels aren't everything. I want optical zoom, so the first company to surprise me with optical zoom on their phone wins. Get on that LG. I still haven't seen or heard from Samsung's 12 megapixel cameraphone, so who knows when that will be released. The Sony Ericsson Idou was the only physical 12MP cameraphone that was available.
