3G capable Toshiba Libretto W100 hits Europe, Middle East

Toshiba’s Libretto W100 is one of the most interesting computers to hit the market in the last few years. At first glance, it looks like a rather chunky 7 inch netbook. Then you open it up and realize that instead of a keyboard and display, there are two touchscreen displays, with the lower screen serving as a virtual keyboard when necessary.

The computer has 62Gb solid state drive, 2GB of memory, a 1.2GHz Intel Pentium U5400 ULV processor, and twin 1024 x 600 pixel displays. It also carriers a high price tag, of around $1100 in the US.

Now it looks like there’s an option for people looking to spend a little more money on this tablet/notebook hybrid device. The folks at Netbook Italia noticed that there are two different models on sale in Italy and some other countries. The Libretto W100-10C is the same model we’ve come to know and love with WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities. But there’s also a Toshiba Libretto W100-10D model with a a 3G HSDPA modem.

According to Netbook Italia, the 3G version goes for about 200 Euros more in Italy than the basic model.

I also found a product listing for the W100-10D on a Toshiba Middle East page, so it looks like the laptop isn’t a European exclusive, but I haven’t seen any info on a 3G capable model for the US yet.
