Gigabyte isn’t exactly new to the netbook game. The company released a mini-laptop with an 8.9 inch screen this summer that happens to be one of the only netbooks with a tablet-style touchscreen. The Gigabyte M912 also happens to be one of the most expensive netbooks, with a starting price around $700. 

Now it looks like Gigabyte is planning to expand its netbook lineup. DigiTimes reports that the company will launch 3 mini-laptops with internal 3.5G modems in early 2009. No word on how much they’ll cost, weigh, or what size they’ll be. It would be nice to see Gigabyte release a touchscreen model like the M912 with a wireless broadband modem. It’s even possible that wireless carriers could help subsidize the cost of the machine for customers who sign up for a long term service contract.

  1. Hopefully they will release a cheaper version of the M812 to compete with the classmate 3. 😛
