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.
