LG Releases 10 New Notebooks -- 4 Based on Intel Core Duo
LG Electronics released 10 new notebooks today, 4 of which are Intel Core Duo based, forming the new Express Dual range. They are the S1, P1, M1 and T1 Express Dual notebooks. The P1 (pictured above) features an ATI X1300, X1400 or X1600 graphics card, 15.4" widescreen.
The other six notebooks release comprise the latest models in LG's Express range and are based on the Intel Centrino Mobile platform. The Intel Pentium based notebooks released are the LW40, LW20, LW70 and two K1 models with different processor speeds. The TX1, a new ultraportable, is based on an Intel Pentium M ULV Processor.
Sadly, none of these notebooks are available in the USA.
Microsoft, Intel push "ultra mobile" PCs
Industry giants Microsoft and Intel are both pushing the idea of more portable PCs today. At a mobile platform conference, Microsoft's divisional Vice President described a vision for the next class of mobile device. From Engadget:
...wearable, always on, no larger than 10-inches, connected through 3G networks, pen-based, and have a suggested retail price of $500 or less.
Moving right past the problem of building a mini-PC for under $500, when current models are four or five times that price, or the fact that a 10-inch device is not what I could consider either "wearable" or "ultra mobile," I have to ask a question: is it just me, or has Microsoft spent a huge amount of time and money pushing every half-baked product they come up with, but not one dime on their existing PocketPC platform? Air panels, smartphones, tablet PCs, and now minitablets, but they can't be bothered to promote the product that's already ultra-mobile, along the lines they're describing, and well under $500.
Meanwhile, Intel is trumpeting the impending release of their entry in the micro-tablet market, which is supposed to include GPS and WAN capabilities, the latter probably in the form of EVDO or UMTS/HSDPA.
