It’s been a while since VIA introduced its OpenBook reference design. A good long while. But now it looks like at least one company is preparing to release a VIA Nano-powered mini-notebook based on the OpenBook design.
Dr. Mobile will be showing its FreeStyle Mini netbook at CES this week. The laptop features an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, up to 2Gb of RAM, and a 160GB, 2.5″ HDD. It also comes with optional Bluetooth, WiFi, WiMAX, GPS, and 3.5G support.
It looks like the FreeStyle Mini will be able to use either a VIA C7-M CPU or the new VIA Nano processor. The machine comes with 3 USB ports, a webcam, and a 4 cell, 2600mAh battery. It measures 9.5″ x 6.7″ x 1.4″ and weighs 2.4 pounds.
Update: Engadget has some hands-on photos of a non-working model, and reports that we should see working units on the floor at CES.

Thanks for this post, my friend will be so exciting to check this. I really appreciate your work over here
The Freestyle 1300n is a bit more interesting, it has 11,6″ hi-def screen (1366×768) and a Via Nano 1.3 (or 1.6?) CPU. It’s not more than 1.3kg with 3800mAh battery. Check drmobile’s website for details.
