Japanese laptop maker Kohjinsha has added a new model to its line of netbooks. The Kohjinsha MT series mini-laptops features a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 576 pixel display, 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth, and Windows XP Home. 3 and 6 cell battery options are available.
But what really makes this netbook stand out is the inclusion of an integrated TV tuner and an ExpressCard/34 slot that you can use to attach a 3G modem or other external components.
The Kohjinsha MT sells for 49,800 yen or about $500. Of course, the odds of seeing it outside of Japan anytime soon are pretty poor.

TV tuners do sound like a lovely idea…I only question power and processor usage…
Historically, Kohjinsha mini-laptops have been sold in the UK (and possibly other territories) as Vye Mini, and have been cute but expensive for what they are. I doubt they would want to break that mould, rightly or wrongly.
Nice to add the extra features, but it is missing 24 vertical pixels and the price makes me wonder if they think they are Sony or Apple.
