Beyond that Computerworld claims the Alpha 680 is smaller and lighter than ASUS netbooks and it will run a 533 MHz ARM11 processor. A full list of specs are already available on Skytone's website.

If all goes as planned, we should be seeing a product on store shelves sometime in the next 3 months or so—although there are no guarantees it will be on time and on price. [Boy Genius via Computerworld and Phandroid]

Love the form factor, not the specs.

What would it take to get some netbook manufacturer to make an Ion-based netbook in a design like that? I could totally see using that pad and those buttons for emulators.
