I can’t count the number of times I’ve thought to myself, “gee, wouldn’t it be nice if a company best known for making printers would release a netbook.” Of course, that’s probably because I’m not sure how you count to zero. But if you’re looking for a netbook to go with your Epson printer, it looks like the wait will soon be over. Epson has a teaser page on its Japanese website for an upcoming netbook.
At the moment, there’s no picture. While this may be intended to build intrigue, I think what it really means is that the company hasn’t finalized the case design. But we do know what will be on the insides:
- CPU: 1.6GHz Intel Atom
- Display: 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixels
- RAM: 1GB
- Storage: 160GB HDD
- Operating System: Windows XP SP3
- Connectivity: Ethernet, 802.11b/g WiFi
- Chipset: Intel 945GSE Express
No word on price, when the netbook will be available, or what countires Epson will sell it in.
