A-View Netbook With Detachable Tablet Screen For $150

Details are scarce, but it appears that Taiwan-based Aware Electronics is planning to release a netbook with a detachable screen (similar to the Touch Book) for only $150.

As far as specs are concerned, the only information available at this time is that it will feature an 8MB SSD and 512MB of RAM—a significant jump from the $400 Touch Book. It can also run Windows XP or Linux. That sounds great, but if the A-View ever becomes widely available, I would expect that a hefty price increase might come along with it. [Digitimes]
