Spotted these at a local K-Mart, first is the 10.2″ Augen Genbook running Android 2.1, on the side it says resolution to be at 800×600 and cost $189.99. The second is the Genbook at 7″, not sure if it’s running 2.1 as it doesn’t say on the box and cost $109.99. Last but not least, the Augen Gentouch 7″ Tablet running Android, again not mentioned which flavor and cost $179.99. There seems to be some in stock so if you’re out for a cheapo Android device, get them while they last.
Nokia have released their own version of the Netbook with the Booklet 3G. This little device is well, like any other netbooks, does what other netbook does. The only major difference is that it come with 3G support. So you can now stick your 3G SIM card in the booklet and hit the road. I saw a demo unit at bestbuy and they do look very good, much thinner than other netbooks out there. Overall, the design is very good but too expensive, well over the $400 mark. Check out a review here.
Finally, Sony has released their 1st netbook named the Vaio W. It’s drop dead gorgeous I must say, comes with all the standard netbook trimmers but is a tat more expensive at $499. Runs on Atom 280N, has a higher screen res at 1366×768, 802.1n wifi and bluetooth as standard. Caught one in the wild and took a quick pic. Very nice Sony, very nice.
Notebookreview.com have a great little review of the now available Lenovo Netbook S10. I really like the design of this laptop compared with all the other netbooks around. It has more features like build-in bluetooth and a external express card slot. Only thing is it only have 2x USB where most others have 3. Anyway, will try to find one to play with, my Eeepc is lookin real old… You can tell I really like this one. Check it out here.
