LG has shown off the Netbook X110 – apparently a more sustainable and affordable laptop for those who regularly surf the web at home or on the move. After a deal made between Phones4U, the netbooks will be available in its stores in white and pink and will include a number of 3G mobile broadband bundles.
The Netbook features Windows XP Home Edition, an Intel Atom 1.6GHZ processor and 1GB of RAM. The light and compact Netbook weighs only 1.19kg but still manages to boast a 10-inch display.
LG said its recent deal with Phones4U was no surprise, given a growing interest in mobile data transfer, including examples such as the recent BlackBerry Bold and iPod 3G.
“Mobile communications is now as much about data access as it is about voice calls,” said John Barton, UK sales and marketing director of LG Mobile.
“With this in mind we are delighted to be entering the Netbook market with this exciting, stylish and technically advanced device.”
The neat sized Netbook X110 comes with a full sized keyboard, WLAND 802.11b/g and 10/100 Ethernet connectivity, making this a practical networking device.
“The X110 also differentiates itself from other competitors with advanced features such as a five-fold increase in storage capacity through its 80GB hard disk drive and its modern and chic design,” an official LG statement said.
However, no pricing was released for the X110 Netbook.
