We’ve been hearing rumors about a tiny little shakeup on the horizon for Intel’s Atom line of chips. Basically, the Atom N450 and N470 processors that power netbooks today will be phased out and replaced with Atom N455 and N475 chips that are virtually identical, but which add support for DDR3 memory.
Now it looks like Toshiba has inadvertently confirmed the rumors by posting a product page for the upcoming Toshiba NB305-10F netbook. for the most part, this netbook looks similar to existing mini-laptops from Toshiba. But it has a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor and supports DDR3 1066MHz RAM.
Aside from the 1GB stick of DDR3 RAM, the rest of the netbook specs are pretty much par for the course, including a 10.1 inch 1024 x 600 pixel display, GMA 3150 graphics, and 250GB hard drive. the computer supports Bluetooth and 802.11b/g/n WiFi.
There’s no word on pricing or availability.
