Last time I heard from SungWorld, the company had introduced a dirt cheap 7-inch netbook in China for about $73. Now it looks like the company has moved on to 10 inch models, with the SungWorld L3, a netbook with a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, Intel Atom N270 CPU, and GMA 950 graphics.
If the specs sound like they’re straight out of last year, that’s because they are. But the netbook is rather slim and light, weighing just over 2.2 pounds with a 3200mAh lithium polymer battery. SungWorld has also apparently crammed a digital TV tuner in the case.
Part of the way SungWorld is keeping the size down appears to be by eliminating the left and right mouse buttons and integrating them with the touchpad — a design feature I’m not particularly fond of.
Shanzhaiben reports that the SungWorld L3 will be available in black, white, pink, or dark green. The netbook will cost about 2099 yuan, which is about $308 US, although I don’t expect to see this netbook in the US anytime soon.
