The HP Mini 2140 is set to become one of the few netbooks with a screen resolution higher than 1024 x 600. When HP first announced the laptop in January, the company promised that a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display would be an option. But so far only the 10.1 inch, 1024 x 576 pixel screen has been available.
A few weeks ago an HP product manager told me the higher resolution display would be available in early April and that it would only add $25 to the price of the HP Mini 2140. Now Digifitti has uncovered a firmer date: April 6th. I’d take this information with a grain of salt for two reasons. First, the news comes from a sales rep, not HP HQ, and second the article lists the launch date as April 6, 2006. But as someone who’s been guilty of writing a few typos from time to tome, I’m inclined to give Digifitti the benefit of the doubt here.
Anyway, the news does seem to line up with what I’d heard. So I wouldn’t be surprised to see the new screen resolution available as an option on or around the 6th.
