We’re getting a few more details about the upcoming BenQ Joybook Lite U101 netbook. No, we still don’t know how much it will cost, or when it will be released, but in addition to the usual specs like a 1.6GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth, and 802.11b/g WiFi, it looks like the U101 will also come with an optional 3.5G HSUPA modem (which will probably support 7.1Mbps, not 70 as the screenshot shows), and will have 802.11n WiFi support.

UMPC Fever has posted a few slides showing the netbook‘s features. It will also apparently have a 90% sized keyboard, and a display with a 16:9 aspect ratio. It’s not clear exactly what that means in terms of pixel resolution. Most netbooks have 1024 x 600 pixel displays, which are somewhere between 16:9 and 16:10. A true 16:9 display would be 1024 x 576. While that might be better for watching full screen video without any black bars showing up on your display, you kind of need every pixel you can get on small netbook screens. My guess is that BenQ is fudging the whole aspect ratio thing a bit in their promotional materials. But we won’t know for sure until we see a real spec sheet, or better yet, a real netbook.

  1. The girl in the picture is certainly NOT holding a netbook. 😉
