When Dell unveiled the Inspiron Mini 10 netbook way back in January, the company promised it would have a few exciting options that you won’t find on most netbooks, like an integrated GPS receiver or TV tuner. But when the company actually launched its first netbook with a 10 inch screen several months later, neither option was anywhere in site.
Now Dell is telling several sources (including Engadget and Gizmodo) that the TV tuner will be available starting today. The tuner will be an integrated ATSC tuner which can pick up over the air HDTV signals with the help of an external antenna. You’ll have to pony up an extra $50 to get a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 with the tuner.
Engadget reports that Dell will also be rolling out a new color option, allowing you to order an Inspiron Mini 10 in purple. Right now the netbook is available in black, white, red, pink, blue, and green.
