Fujitsu Siemens looks like it's about ready to launch the svelte Amilo Mini. According to IDG News, the company has announced a press event for August 28 at the IFA show in Berlin, and the signs and portents indicate a big reveal could happen at that time. The specs don't really differentiate the Amilo Mini from the plethora of other ultra portable notebooks hitting the market these days, but it does boast changeable face plates (brown, black, pink, and red). Cost is expected to fall between $600-800. [Liliputing]
Yet another Intel Atom netbook, running the same chipset as all the others? Not exactly news.
I do like the concept of netbooks, but with so many on the market all with approximately the same spec that I really cannot be bothered anymore.
Call me when someone does something different, like a Via Nano based netbook, a netbook with a discrete graphics chip (with a DVI output), a netbook with a built in touchscreen, or a netbook with an AMD Athlon 64 2000+ ([www.tomshardware.co.uk]).
