Computer maker Red Fox offers a handful of netbooks in the Philippines, with screen sizes ranging from 8.9 inches to 10 inches. Up until now the company’s only 8.9 inch model features a 500MHz AMD Geode LX800 processor. But now Red Fox has introduced the WizBook 890i, which features a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU.
The rest of the netbook’s specs look pretty standard. It has 120GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, 1.3MP webcam, and a 3800mAh battery which should provide up to 4 hours of run time. There are a few things that set the WizBook 890i apart from the crowd (if not from Red Fox’s other netbooks) though, including support for 802.11a/b/g and an ExpressCard slot. Neither of these features make the 890i unique, but it is pretty rare to find 802.11a support and/or an ExpressCard in a netbook, especially one with an 8.9 inch screen.
The netbook weighs 1.1kg and will only be available in red. No word on pricing or a release date.
