Just in case you were worried that Gigabyte’s latest touchscreen tablet-style netbook wouldn’t be available in the US, the FCC has been kind enough to post some picutres of the Gigabyte Touch Note M1028, as well as a series of test results and a complete user manual (PDF link). For some reason the manual refers to the machine as the M1028 CafeBook instead of Touch Note M1028. But it’s pretty clearly the same machine that was on display at CeBIT last week.

Gigabyte wouldn’t have bothered submitting the laptop’s details to the FCC if the company wasn’t at least thinking about selling the netbook in the states.

There are also a handful of pictures showing the computer’s insides. So if you’re looking for the location of the Bluetooth, WWAN, or WiFi modules, you might want to sift through some of the FCC documents.

The netbook will have a 10 inch touchscreen display that swivels down over the keyboard, a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU, and a 4 cell, 4500mAh battery or a 6 cell, 7650mAh battery. It comes with an 802.11a/b/g WiFi module and options for Bluetooth, 3.5G wireless broadband, and WiMAX. Another thing that sets Gigabyte’s new netbooks apart from the crowd is the inclusion of ExpressCard slots.

  1. They certainly have any and all wireless services covered for this CafeBook (does it come with a beret?), but I wonder about price. Also four cell battery sound small, it might save on weight, but I wonder if that is enough juice in the cafe…would that last me a whole Venti with muffin or just a Tall with a biscotti?
