Apparently the Dot isn’t just limited to Europe though. Chilean web site Tecnoblog has posted a brief review of the netbook, which it says will be available in Chile in a few days.
The Packard Bell Dot has the same basic chassis, keyboard, and overall layout as the Acer Aspire One. It is painted a different color and it has the Packard Bell logo instead of the Acer logo. But that’s about it for the differences. Both netbooks have 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel displays, 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPUs, 1GB of RAM, a multi-format card reader, 802.11b/g WiFi, 3 USB ports, and a 3 cell battery with an optional 6 cell version available. The Packard Bell Dot does seem to come with a 160GB hard drive standard, while the Aspire One comes with a variety of solid state disk and hard drive options. And like the Aspire One, the Dot can be configured with a 3G modem.
