LaptopMag spoke with ECS vice president of sales Henry Kwan about the upcoming G10IL low-cost notebook and learned the product will be shipping for $399 in the US in September.
Here's a look at some of the things they heard:
Have EDGE, HSUPA, and HSPDA mobile broadband support. It will not have WiMAX support, like the Everex CloudBook Max.
Come in two display-size variations: an 8.9-inch and a 10-inch. The 10-inch display will be the most likely to hit the U.S. market.
Be available in the U.S. starting in September. There will be an 8GB SSD version running Linpus Lite 9.4 Linux and a 80GB hard drive version running Windows XP. Pricing will start at $399, but the least expensive systems will not include 3G options.
Will be the first mini-notebook designed and marketed for business use, not education.
